About Ministry Partner Development (MPD)

Kingdom Workers is an independent nonprofit organization that raises funds to support our work across the world. Much of our funding comes through traditional nonprofit practices of regular appeals to our individual donors and formal grant requests to foundations and corporations with giving missions that match the work we do. We also value personal support networks, where individuals provide financial and spiritual support to specific staff positions. Because we believe it is important, all staff are trained in how to develop their own network. Raising a personal support network is voluntary for this position.
