FCA is a faith-financed ministry and depends on the generosity of donors to support the ministry. Each FCA field ministry role includes responsibility for developing and implementing a funding plan as part of the preparation and onboarding process prior to being hired. FCA anticipates an approximate $60,000 to $75,000 annual budget for an FCA field position. This budget covers salary, payroll taxes, benefit costs, program and operating costs.
As field ministry staff trust God for their ministry, each is able to invite individuals, churches and other organizations to be active in FCA ministry through prayer, volunteering and financial commitments.
In addition, at certain staff levels, a local leadership board is required to support the FCA staff person spiritually, programmatically, financially and emotionally. These board members will love you, support you, and hold you accountable in their vital volunteer role to assure the integrity and advancement of the ministry.
