Friends Network supports a large, global team on a very lean budget. It only costs about $8000 to support an evangelist for one year. FN covers the costs of airfare, overseas health and liability insurance, in-field worker care, training, and resources for each of its workers. Evangelists’ salaries are generally paid by their local employer, such as schools or training centers. 


100% of our revenue comes directly from charitable gifts given by individuals, churches, and schools. Friends Network receives no direct support from its affiliated synod or denomination. To make a tax-deductible donation, please click here.
