Our mission is to see the eradication of spiritual poverty – Mark 16:15

Above & Beyond Logo Short-term mission tripsOur Story

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.

Grants 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.

The Fund

Traditional giving to missions is typically a single gift to one person for a specific mission trip

Mission Giving

By contrast, a gift to Above & Beyond supports multiple missionaries immediately and tomorrow’s missionaries for generations to come!

Mission Giving With Above & Beyond

Every contribution to Above & Beyond is invested in 2 ways:

  • GoToday Fund: One-third of every dollar given in a current year is used to immediately support missionaries applying to our Serve Local Go Global program.
  • GoTomorrow Fund: Two-thirds of every dollar given in a current year is invested to provide funding for generations of applicants beyond your lifetime.
