NO GREAT VISION HAPPENS ALONE
Let’s look at some statistics to show the gravity of the situation many in missions based ministry face.
WHAT CHRISTIANS EARN:
Annual Income of all Church Members: $42 trillion. 
Annual income of Evangelical Christians is approximately $7 Trillion.
WHAT PEOPLE GIVE:
Given to any Christian causes: $700 billion. (That’s also how much we spend in America on Christmas.)
Given to Missions: $45 billion. (That’s only 6.4% of the money given to Christian causes of any kind. That’s also how much we spend in America on dieting programs.)
Embezzled: If you are doing the math and realize there is $50 billion missing, this is where it went.
HOW CHRISTIAN GIVING IS USED:
Pastoral ministries of local churches (mostly in Christian nations): $677 billion (96.8%)
“Home Missions” in same Christian nations: $20.3 billion (2.9%)
Going to Unevangelized Non-Christian world: $2.1 billion (.3%) *This is different than “Unreached”
Money that goes toward Unreached Peoples: *Estimated $450 million. (The $450 million going toward UPG’s is only .001% of the $42 trillion Income of Christians. For every $100,000 that Christians make, they give $1 to the unreached.)
Evangelical Christians could provide all of the funds needed to plant a church in each of the 6,900 unreached people groups with only 0.03% of their income. The Church has roughly 3,000 times the financial resources and 9,000 times the manpower needed to finish the Great Commission. If every evangelical gave 10% of their income to missions we could easily support 2 million new missionaries.
I cannot stress the importance of Partnering with us enough. We receive hundreds of invitations to hold Leadership/Prophetic Conferences and Crusades from some of the most impoverished areas of the World. Unfortunately, many of the invitations have to be scheduled for later dates simply because the funds are not available.
It costs us 15 times more to send a single fundraising letter than the average American Christian gives towards Missions a year!
We endeavor to be good stewards of the finances that come into the ministry and strive to be as cost effective as we can, where we can. Everyone of these Conference and Crusade Events cost Firestarter Ministries International on average $15,000.00. They reach thousands for the Gospel and assist thousands who are in need of education, food, and medical supplies. This is done in order to fulfill the vision of Firestarter Ministries International: to engage, educate, and empower this generation to know their identity, walk in unprecedented power & turn their world upside down for Christ!
Behind every staff member investing their lives in the vision of FIRESTARTER MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL, there are Partners, like you, generously investing in them!
