Our Mission & Vision

Missions International began as a calling on the life of Ray and Peggy Etheridge after their first mission trip to Mexico in 1983. They learned it is customary for mission boards to take administrative fees out of missionary contributions. Ray and Peggy had a vision to form a mission board where administrative fees would be paid from money raised specifically for that purpose, and 100% of contributions given to a missionary would go directly to the mission field.

In 1988, Missions International, Inc. was born! Still today, all contributions given to a missionary go directly to the mission field. Of course there are administrative costs, and contributors are welcome to give to offset those expenses; those gifts are to continue the ministry of Missions International.

In addition to being a mission board, a faithful group of indigenous pastors are registered through Missions International with their government and receive financial support from contributors, partnering with them to serve multiple churches in Mexico.

Missions International exists to help pastors and missionaries share the love of Jesus with a lost and dying world.
