When I donate to Rain Ministries what does my gift support?
We are so glad you asked!
Rain Ministries is a non-profit organization. But we are not just an organization, we are real people working hard to share Creator’s Good News with others.
Terry and Darlene Wildman are the main directors of Rain Ministries. We have been active in the lives of Native Americans since 1998 and founded Rain Ministries in 2002. We are also accountable to our Board of Directors who support and oversee the legal aspects of our non-profit.
Terry has recently accepted a pastoral call at the Northport Indian UMC in Michigan, near Traverse City. The church is not able, at this time, to support us full time. Your gift here will help supplement our income to help us serve here and invest in the local Native American community. The reservation we serve is the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians.
Every year we also travel sharing the good news of Jesus across Indian Country and sometimes beyond to other nations.
Terry is currently working on a translation of the Sacred Scriptures beginning with the story of Jesus from the Gospels, called the First Nations Version Project in partnership with OneBook of Canada, a Bible translation organization, part of the Wycliffe Global Alliance. You can help us find more time to translate and write by becoming a partner and giving monthly.
Your gift also supports our efforts at recording and publishing songs, books, CDs, and DVDs–tools that help us fulfill this calling.
Most of our support comes from love offerings as we travel. About twenty percent comes from the sale of our non-profit related products.
Your monthly support would give us the opportunity to focus on the translation project and travel less while we continue local ministry.
Please prayerfully consider becoming monthly supporters!
