Rick & Jolene Nachtigal | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Rick & Jolene Nachtigal

After serving language communities in Papua New Guinea for 22 years, Rick and Jolene are excited to be moving into a new season of life and ministry. They are ministering from the JAARS center in Waxhaw NC. JAARS is an SIL Entity that provides transportation solutions, training, and support for IT and Media projects that advance Bible Translation. The JAARS center is like no other place on earth. It’s an international training and support services hotspot – home to some of the world’s top trainers, teachers, translation consultants and mission aviators. New missionaries are recruited and trained from here, then sent to the mission field to impact Bible Translation. Rick will be working in the Aviation department and Jolene looks to fill support role needs as family responsibilities allow. They look forward to teaming up with you to continue bringing God’s Word to people around the world.

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.
