Michael & Claudia Rudd | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Michael & Claudia Rudd

When Michael and Claudia found God calling them to serve the Bibleless, they stepped out in faith - although they had no idea what role God could use them for. However, once God had their submission, He gave them their mission: to be a guide to the workers He was raising up.

“And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent?” (Romans 10:15a)

The Rudds are devoted to guiding those God has already called into the work He has prepared them for. This is so important because - without someone to shepherd them on their journey - so many with a burden for missions never find their way to the field.

That's where God has called Michael and Claudia to be, standing in the gap, building a bridge between those called and the known needs in the global Bible translation movement!

"The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So, pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask Him to send more workers into His fields."
(Matthew 9:37-38)

The Rudds invite you to financially and prayerfully partner with their Wycliffe ministry, to help them start sending out a flood of more workers into the fields so ripe for the harvest!

Michael and Claudia live with their three-year-old daughter, Penelope ("Penny") and newborn daughter, Eleanor ("Ellie") along with Claudia's grandmother, Maria.

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.
