The Wycliffe Ministry of

Brett and Marla Shideler

“Do you regret the decision you made to leave your position as Captain Engineer with your city’s Fire Department and your comfortable lives in Colorado?” When asked this question, the Shidelers’ response is, “nope; not even a little bit!” When they saw how God clearly led them to join Wycliffe in 1993, travel to Cameroon, Africa, to serve in the task of Bible translation for 14 years before returning to the US in 2007, they are humbled by how God has used them in the effort to make His living Word accessible to so many. They are energized by their roles on the Human Resources teams with Wycliffe USA and SIL International and find great joy in serving their fellow members. We invite you to partner with Brett and Marla in their Wycliffe ministry!

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.
