“I so want you to realize this principle of working with God and asking Him for everything. If the work is at the command of God, then we can go to Him in full confidence for workers; and when God gives the workers, we can go to Him for means to supply their needs.”
(J. Hudson Taylor. God's Fellow Workers. Philadelphia: Overseas Missionary Fellowship.)
What is OMF’s Financial Policy?
Throughout our years as the China Inland Mission and later as Overseas Missionary Fellowship, confidence in the faithful provision of a loving Heavenly Father has supported the plans and ministry of thousands of OMF missionaries.
This foundational principle has been applied in different ways as leaders have responded to various ministry opportunities, as well as the needs of sending churches, individual donors and prayer partners.
Thirteen hundred OMF members serving as either missionaries or professional service associates are ready to demonstrate Christ's love. They share the gospel, mentor new believers and start new churches where none have previously existed. Every month God is opening new doors and calling new members to join in this endeavour.
However, East Asia still remains the world's most untouched continent.
How will the Lord provide the financial needs of an ever-growing ministry? In the same way that He provided the means for new outreach in 1880, in 1930 and 2010 - through the sacrificial gifts of His people.
How can I learn about OMF's needs?
No OMFer makes appeals on their own behalf or on behalf of OMF. However, we are always happy to answer your questions or give clarification about the support levels of any worker.
We report on finance regularly in our quarterly magazine Heart For Asia, to show God’s faithfulness and keep our supporters informed of what God is doing through OMF in East Asia.
If you are committed to praying for an OMFer and sign up to receive their monthly prayer letter, we will send you an annual summary of their support needs for your prayers.
How do I support a particular OMFer?
You may do this by specifically naming the person, and making your gift either through your church or direct to OMF.
Although you may make a gift ‘for the support of’a particular OMFer, your gift is payable to OMF and administered in line with our policy of corporate sharing. The person whose name you have mentioned will be informed of your support.
Donor Designated Funds Policy
Spending of funds is confined to programs and projects approved by OMF International - Canada. Each restricted contribution designated towards such an approved program or project will be used as designated with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project has been met, or cannot be completed for any reason determined by OMF International - Canada, the remaining restricted contributions will be used where needed most.
Revocable Gifts Agreement Policy
A ‘Revocable Gift’ is an income producing property or estate loaned to OMF CA in trust. It is still owned by the donor so that any income produced by the property or estate at the time of OMF International – Canada management can be claimed by the donor. The donor can request to have the property or estate back, revoking the gift, at any point of time.
OMF International – Canada will require 30 days notice in a written form in order to return the gift.
Pre-authorized Payment Plan Policy
The Pre-authorized Payment Plan is approved by Canadian banks, trust companies, credit unions and Caisses Populaires.
