Contribute to the WFM General fund, on behalf of specific missionary families, or to individual mission projects. Make either a one-time or recurring monthly donation. The choice is yours. Don’t worry, you don’t need to have a PayPal account to complete the process. Simply click the donate button on your chosen fund’s tab and the forms will walk you through the steps.
Large or small, any amount you give to World Family Missions is greatly appreciated. We are a 501(c)(3) exempt organization, meaning all of your generous donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
We have committed to make sure that 100% of your donation to specific missionaries or mission projects goes directly through to them,* regardless of any processing fees charged to WFM. We aim to use 5% or less of our General Fund donations to cover administration costs like printing, website management, and PayPal or bank processing fees. The rest goes to support the most pressing missionary or project needs as determined by our board. We are able to manage this because much of our staff is self-funded; either volunteering or being reimbursed through a corporate offset.
*Occasionally, if a mission/missionary is fully funded before launch, excess funds will be distributed at the discretion of the board to the mission with the next most immediate start date. This happens rarely, and is necessary to maintain our tax-exempt status in good standing.

In 2016, our very own-long term missionaries, Michael, Sarah, and Eden Jones, implemented a new program to help provide nutritious food, medical assistance, education, and clothing to the infants and children in some of the poorest neighborhoods in Metro Manila, Philippines.
Many of these children go too often without anything to eat. Their young mothers, having little to no education or support, often do not know how to properly care for themselves or their children. Formula for the Philippines is a program ministers both to the practical and spiritual needs of these families. Your sponsorship helps make the program a success and puts smiles on the faces and food in the bellies of children in the Navotas/Malabon area of the Philippines.
Currently our Formula for the Philippines program is fully enrolled and all children have sponsors. However, the program has ongoing needs to help cover facility rent and utilities as well as occasional medical expenses for our program participants. If you are a sponsor, or would like to donate to benefit the program, you can do so by clicking the button. Thank you so much for your support!
John Whittaker is a preacher, teacher and pastor. He holds theology and ministry degrees from Boise Bible College, Cincinnati Bible Seminary, and a doctorate in preaching from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. John has been serving in ministry for 30 years. He has served as a Professor of Preaching and New Testament at Boise Bible College for 19 years. During that time, he also helped plant a church in Kuna, Idaho, where he led the adult education ministry and preached for 11 years. He has taught classes for Eternity Bible College and taught and preached in various places around the country and the world. Most recently, he served for nearly 4 years as one of the teaching and campus pastors at The Pursuit, in Boise.
When he’s not preaching or teaching, you might find him at a local coffee shop meeting with and encouraging other local ministers. Or you could find him hanging out at home with his wife and partner in ministry, Louise, his closest friend for 30 years. Or perhaps you’ll find him throwing the ball for his dogs.
He loves Mexican food, a quiet day in the woods, his family, but most of all John loves to help people see how God’s word speaks to their life and his greatest thrill in life is to see people come alive to the joy of walking with God honestly, humbly, and transformationally.
