The Kingdom Missions Fund (KMF) began with one man’s faithfulness to put away $50 a month to create a fund investing in missions. Just over ten years later the fund has raised nearly $500,000 and funded smart, sustainable and scalable missions projects across the planet.
Paul Barber’s missions journey began by raising personal support to be a part of Campus Crusade for Christ in the early 1970’s. Soon he found himself in he Philippines starting a missions training center. After returning from overseas he began working in the education and corporate worlds.
Like all of us, Paul each month received multiple requests to give to various missions projects. While he was faithful to give small amounts it became frustrating to see so many people with amazing visions held back by financial restraints. The need for new sources of revenue for the Kingdom became apparent.
Along with his accountant John Craft, Paul began looking for a way to create a fund that could combine donations from many people to create a sustainable funding source. However, the two quickly discovered what seemed to be insurmountable startup costs and red tape.
