We’re all about missionaries.

Because we’re all about the Gospel.

Missional Living

Our Purpose

Like you, we want to see the Gospel spread to all tribes and tongues and nations.

To do that, we need missionaries…people who will lay down their lives and love others around the world in the name of Jesus.

But there’s a problem…

Over 70% of missionaries who leave the field leave for preventable reasons.

They often lack the support they need. They often lack the rest they need. They often get burnt out.

That’s why Missional Living exists…

By providing low-cost housing, we hope to make it easier to enjoy a restful home assignment or furlough and re-enter the mission field refreshed and energized.

Through personal, confidential coaching, we hope to see more missionaries receive the care and support they need to thrive in their ministry long term.


Missional Living exists to glorify God through the support and care of Christian missionaries by providing transitional housing, coaching and training in the United States and abroad.



Commitment to God and His People

God is passionate for His people. We desire to be passionate for God and His purposes. We seek to serve God’s global servants so they might be strengthened in their passion and further His Kingdom.

Commitment to Christ as Center

Jesus Christ is the image of God the Father who knows, loves and redeems His people. We extend the love of Christ to global servants that they might be renewed and empowered in their desire to follow Christ’s leading.

Commitment to God’s Word

God’s word will direct us to provide the right services to His global servants.

Commitment to Prayer and the Grace of God

Prayer is foundational to gain knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Through prayer, we remember God’s grace was demonstrated to sinners through His son Jesus Christ. That same grace will be granted to each global servant through our actions and words to build up and encourage.

Commitment to Shepherd His Servants

Jesus is the “Good Shepherd” who cares for His sheep. We seek to meet practical needs for global servants for the purpose of rest, encouragement and restoration.

  • We believe the Holy Scriptures as contained in the Old and New Testament to be the inspired and the only authoritative Word of God sufficient for both faith and practice.


  • We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of Heaven and earth and all things visible and invisible, eternally existent.  We believe in the three persons Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


  • We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, in His sinless life, His miracles, and in His vicarious and atoning death on the cross through His shed blood, and in His bodily resurrection and His ascension to the right hand of God, the Father, and in His return in power and grace.

  • We believe in the salvation of lost and sinful humanity through the work of regeneration by the Holy Spirit through which those who are saved will be resurrected into eternal life, and those who are lost into eternal separation.


  • We believe in the Holy Spirit as the Divine Presence in our lives, whereby we are kept in perpetual remembrance of the truth of Christ.  Therefore, we are enabled to live a Godly life and find strength and help in times of need.


  • We believe in the Church universal and in the local church as the fellowship for worship and service of all who are united to the Living Lord.


  • We embrace as Christian brothers and sisters all who hold to the above tenets of the Christian faith regardless of denominational affiliation.
