Give & Volunteer


When you make a donation to Ministry Essentials Int’l (MEI), you’re making a gift whose impact multiplies over and over.  Your gift supports your missionary, who is pouring life into church and mission leaders. Those leaders pour into their workers.  Those workers bring Christ to the nations!  

All MEI missionary staff raise their own financial support, which provides the living and ministry expenses necessary to cover the cost of pouring into others. We are committed to keeping our administrative costs low so that as much as possible of your gift will go to fund the missionary.

Your partnership with MEI is a treasure to us.  One way we want to communicate that is by making record-keeping, gifting and communicating with us as easy as possible.  Any time you have questions about any part of the giving process, you can email and you’ll get a prompt reply.  The other way we want to communicate value to you is by taking good care of the worker you support.  We are committed to their vocational, personal and spiritual well-being. It’s a high value to us: Revitalize the messengers so they thrive and give from overflow . . . then the Gospel message is validated by the way they relate to their world.  Your gift makes all that possible. We can’t thank you enough.

It is easy to become a financial partner:

We want you to see and be a part of what we do!  One easy way for this to happen comes through short term mission opportunities at the Budapest Garden House (BGH).  We have two specific kinds of need at the BGH for teams of people who want to come:

    • Staff for Forums – Hosts and cooks are needed to provide hospitality during the Forums (2.5 day retreat/conferences).  Conversations and meals are key elements of the Forum environment as well as caring for these global workers. We are glad to provide details of each role, dates needed, and someone to help with your travel arrangements if you’d like to come!
    • Maintenance & Beautification – The BGH is an older home with large grounds, which all need constant updating and maintenance.  Right now we are in need of teams of painters, carpenters and people who enjoy working outdoors in the garden. Children and youth are of course welcome to be a part of these endeavors!  There are lots of weeds to pull and flowers to plant!

If you’re interested in coming, fill out this form and we’ll send you more information!
