john and beth muehleisenWelcome!

My name is John Muehleisen and I coordinate this website.  Thanks for dropping by, and thanks for clicking on the "About " link.
You're a curious type of person, obviously, so keep exploring.
Welcome to "Raise Your Support," a website with resources for Christian workers who raise their own ministry support.
The site emerged from my own search for resources on the internet to help me raise my own support and build a strong ministry partnership team, and to share with colleagues who were doing the same.
As I realized that there might be a broader usefulness for these materials, i decided to assemble them on a simple website with the hope that others might find them useful.

John's Real Job

Working on this site is a small hobby of mine.   My real job is a lot more fun!
Currently, I am the Vice President for Global Strategy and Training for World Gospel Mission.  I am responsible to work with our various ministry teams to help them develop ministry strategies that really work and bring out transformational results.  Then, I help connect them to the training, people, and other resources they need in order to successfully execute that strategy.
In other words, it's my job to make their dreams come true ... their dreams of serving God and making a real change in the world for the good and in the name of Jesus.
Is that a great job, or what?
My wife Beth and I have been missionaries with World Gospel Mission for about 39 years, serving most of those years in East Africa in Kenya and Uganda.  We raised ministry support through ministry partner development for all of those years, and still do today. 
We have two adult daughters:  Holly and Faith.
Holly is currently serving as a missionary with WGM, and Faith and her husband and kids live in Kentucky where she is a social worker for the Veterans Administration.

Other Stuff I Do

I am also a computer programmer by hobby. I have written a number of computer programs over the years. My current project is upgrading the "Donor Manager" ... a database designed just for people who raise their own support. You can learn more about this project at the Donor Manager website at:
