The Wycliffe Ministry of

Karl & Deborah Crossman

Karl and Deborah have been ministering with Wycliffe Bible Translators since 1997. They have served in multiple assignments and locations including Papua New Guinea and Kenya. Karl facilitates Bible translation through his expertise as an avionics specialist, electrician and communications specialist. The Crossmans are currently assigned to ministry from the JAARS mission center in North Carolina where Karl has a dual assignment with the JAARS Facilities Department as an electrician and with the Global Technology Information Services Team - helping Bible translators all over the world solve their complex communication challenges.

The Crossmans have four children. They are sustained and empowered in ministry by the generosity of individuals, families and Churches that pray for them and provide financial partnerships. They would be thrilled and honored to have you as part of their Wycliffe team.

Wycliffe Ministry Budget

Wycliffe establishes a Ministry Budget for its missionaries to reflect recurring expenses related to family factors and their geographic location of service. Giving to Wycliffe directly impacts missionaries’ ability to begin and remain in their assignment.

This budget covers ministry-related expenses, insurance and retirement, social security and taxes, and Wycliffe administrative costs. The remainder is what the missionaries receive as “take-home pay” for their daily living expenses.
