Who is a Field Coordinator?

A Field Coordinator is a God-supported missionary who is a bridge between the home base and the field. Because MVI is a faith-based organization, our missionaries are not salaried, but are responsible for raising their own support. They place their faith in God for supplying all their needs, financial and otherwise. I Thessalonians 5:24 says, "Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass."

What does a Field Coordinator do?
