The Wycliffe Ministry of

Mike & Kathy Smith

Mike serves in Land Transportation at JAARS, teaching and training repair of 4WD and missionary vehicles. He also carries the role of overseas vehicle consultant, as well as servicing our many JAARS Center Vehicles. Many look to him as the lead mechanic for all these things.

Kathy is a Coordinator of Music, Audio, and Visual services of the JAARS Tuesday Center Meeting (JTCM) at JAARS. JTCM is a weekly 1-hour gathering with numerous presenters highlighting the frontline reports of how JAARS is impacting Bible translation. It is an inspiring, challenging and energizes the ‘family/body’ here at the JAARS Center. Each week we have multiple presenters and musicians who participate, and many volunteers and visitors attend. She coordinates music at other events throughout the year when music is needed, such as Scripture Celebration.
In 2021, Covid increased the need for video conference technology and many rooms at JAARS were outfitted with new "hybrid" technology, which met the needs for in-person, global, and virtual conferences. Kathy coordinated the tech team who staffs these.

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 monthly 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.
