Big Idea and Overview

With traditional funding models struggling, a shift is required to navigate the future of staffing and mission in the local church. We help the local church employ staff as “missionaries” to their own congregations and communities through fundraising, coaching, and administrative backing all at no cost to the church. We started Ambassadors out of necessity in the midst of our own church planting journey, and in 2021 we realized the need existed beyond our own network so we went “public.

Customer / Mission Field Context

In short, we serve 5 contexts: Established Churches, Church Plants, Gospel-Centered Non-Profits, Local Missionaries, and Global Missionaries. Zooming in, our main focus is the local church and it’s members. We believe God has equipped, and called his people to missional engagement both within the walls of the local church and in the communities they exist in.  

Goals and Desired Outcomes

  1. To enable local churches to staff their congregations in line with or even ahead of their needs.

  2. To help God’s people start new missional endeavors in their communities in partnership with their local church.

  3. To create a new vision for the future of the Church that helps be a solution to the financial challenges that exist for the post-Christendom, post-Covid, church.
  4.

Impact
