Mary Frances King Short-Term Mission Fund

WHAT IT IS

The Mary Frances King Short-Term Mission Fund is a quasi-endowment formed to financially support St. Andrew’s Church members who participate in short-term missions that are consistent with St. Andrew’s values. Its primary purpose is to share the gospel of Jesus with emphasis on discipleship.

St. Andrew’s recognizes a need to support its missionaries who want to serve on a short-term basis. This fund was formed to meet this need. The fund pays the needs of the short-term missionary, such as training, reasonable housing, living stipend, etc. through monies from interest accrued in the fund. Missions may be domestic or foreign and last between six months and three years.

The quasi-endowment receives funding from donations or other intra-church sources such as missions funds. One of the first donations received was from the St. Andrew’s Church Missions Committee, funded by St. Andrew’s Church offerings.  

All donations made to the fund will be 100% utilized towards missions of St. Andrew’s church members—forever.
