MRI Board of Directors
The Board of Directors of Ministry Resources International are all volunteers and are a part of this organization because of their shared passion for seeing the Message of Jesus Christ shared creatively with children around the world. Each recognizes that there are many who share this desire but who lack the resources at times even when they do have the opportunity to reach or teach children.
The board meets monthly to review grant applications and to prayerfully consider where our limited funds will be spent and to consider who we might raise funds, as there are always more opportunities to support than funds allow.
