Our mission is to see the end of spiritual poverty – Mark 16:15
"The fresh and innovative approach not only empowers people to pursue their global calling but also motivates them to 'be the church' to those around the corner. By starting the missionary journey through serving in one's own community, Above & Beyond has launched a new model for funding short-term missions..."
– David Benham, Best-Selling Author, Whatever the Cost
"Above & Beyond is helping to provide a pathway for believers to fill in the gaps where evangelism and discipleship is desperately needed and rarely present."
– Glenn Burris, Jr., President, The Foursquare Church
"Above & Beyond is an answer to the call of the great commission...I do not know of another ministry with this kind of bold strategy to impact the Kingdom in communities and the nations."
– Phyllis Hennecy Hendry, President/CEO, Lead Like Jesus
"Above & Beyond is equipping individuals by encouraging them to serve in their communities. Paying it forward is an understatement for this wonderful organization who has assisted dozens of individuals to serve internationally...."
– Manny Ohonme, CoFounder/CEO/President, Samaritan’s Feet International
"Anyone following Jesus should want to bring the Gospel to all the world. But sometimes we forget to bring it down the street! Above & Beyond is a unique ministry that supports missionaries who do both."
– Frank Turek, Radio Host, CrossExamined
Above & Beyond began in 2011 as a local church missions fund, modeled after university endowment funds. Our goal was to financially assist individuals who felt called to the mission field and to provide a fund that would assist those called in the future. In 2013, by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Above & Beyond shifted to an inter-denominational foundation to mobilize multiple generations to fulfill the Great Commission.
Awards for Short-Term Mission Trips
Today, our innovative grant program helps people throughout the Body of Christ, get to the mission field immediately, while our fund structure helps givers multiply their global impact for years to come.
Traditional giving to missions is typically a single gift to one person for a specific mission trip
By contrast, a gift to Above & Beyond supports multiple missionaries immediately and tomorrow’s missionaries for generations to come!
Every contribution to Above & Beyond is invested in 2 ways:
- GoToday Fund: One-half of every dollar given in a current year is used to immediately support missionaries applying to our Serve Local Go Global program.
- GoTomorrow Fund: One-half of every dollar given in a current year is invested to provide funding for generations of applicants beyond your lifetime.
