Partners in Mission Funding Philosophy

Lutheran Bible Translators is not funded by any of the Lutheran denominations.  We are a faith based mission organization. This means that each missionary is given an income goal based on his or her budget for that year and partners in mission are given the opportunity to help reach that goal so that the mission of bringing God's Word to those who don't yet have it in the language of their heart can go forward. The mission of making disciples of all nations is not ours alone, it belongs to you, the church of Christ. We are merely your ambassadors going where many of you cannot go and doing that which many of you haven't been trained to do. 

What is a partner in mission? 

We define a partner in mission as a person, group, or church who shares our vision of reaching Bible-less people groups with the Word of God in their own language. A prayer partner is a partner who chooses to act on the vision by committing to pray specifically for us and our ministry on a daily basis. A financial partner is a partner who chooses to act on the vision by committing to give regularly to our ministry.

How can you become partners in this mission?

You can become a missionary:
LBT is seeking missionaries to work in translation, literacy, vernacular media, information technology or to serve as teachers for missionary families.

You can become a prayer partner:
We are seeking a committed core group of people willing to pray for us. We need brothers and sisters in the faith to pray for us in our struggles and to hold us accountable as we work together as a team in mission. Contact us via email if you are led to seek that role.
