What does the application process look like for Full Members?
There are five stages in the membership journey, as follows:
What does the application process look like for Associate Members?
Associate Members begin by completing the online application and will receive follow-up communication from our office with details about next steps.
How long does it usually take to become a Full Member of The Mission Exchange?
The biggest variable affecting the membership timeline is your ability to complete the online organizational self-assessment. Your Candidate Membership status begins as soon as all your application material has been approved by our board and can last up to three years while you complete the organizational self-assessment, but the entire process can be accomplished in six months to one year.
How do I become an Affiliate Member and how long does it take?
To become an affiliate you are asked to agree with the National Association of Evangelicals statement of faith and affirm the vision, mission and core values of The Mission Exchange. You can become an Individual Affiliate in a few minutes by visiting our online store. The cost is only $99 per year.
Setting up Church and Educational Institution Affiliate Memberships require the involvement of our Member Services team and therefore are not available in our online store. Call us at 770-457-6677 or email Connect@TheMissionExchange.org for assistance.
What are the membership fees and how are they calculated?
Annual dues for Full Members are $1,200 plus an assessment that is calculated based on the size of your budget (if you are a support agency) or the number of missionaries (if you are a sending agency). Dues and assessments are invoiced annually in January; payments can be made quarterly.
Affiliate Memberships are $99 per year for individuals, $279 for churches and $379 for educational institutions. Church membership includes flow-down benefits for the entire staff, missions committee, and missionaries supported by the church, including short-termers. Educational institutions receive flow-down benefits for all faculty, staff, students and alumni.
