After 20 years of ministry, Ministry Resource International is shutting down.

As of September 1st, 2016, MRI is not accepting any more applications.

To the many that have donated funds and resources over the years, we are so thankful for you! Because of your support, thousands of children and youth have been impacted for Christ, often in places where resources and funding are difficult to get.

The entire board of directors would like to thank both donors and recipients for the honor of being able to be a part of what God is doing all over the world to reach children for Jesus.

If you would like to donate to a similar ministry, here are two possibilities:

  1. Sheltering Wings, P.O. Box 29565, St Louis, MO 63126 (Note:  For Tammy Donohue)
  2. Child Evangelism Fellowship, P.O. Box 348, Warrenton, MO 63383

Our Mission

The mission of MRI is to encourage the use of Christian “creative ministry” to children and youth by supplying conference scholarships, specialized funding, ministry materials, and training to children’s workers, mission teams, church plants, inner city ministries, national workers outside the USA, and others who are sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with children and youth in creative ways.

Ministry Resources International will provide teaching resources for persons involved in ministry to children, both within the United States and internationally. Such materials will include books, CDs, Bibles, puppets, videos, and other resources.

Our Funding

Ministry Resources International is an IRS-approved 501(3)C, and your donations to MRI will be acknowledged by a tax-deductible receipt. The demand for assistance usually exceeds our ability to supply the needs, so your generous donation is much needed. You will be kept informed of how your donations are used through regular reports and information posted at
