You might think it’s a silly question.  After all, everyone should save for things like emergencies, retirement, or college, right? Well, missionaries typically rely on donors to fund their ministry and livelihood, so it’s not always easy to save.

Not easy, though, doesn’t mean not possible. To learn how you can begin saving, take a look at this video of Scott Morton. He’s your funding coach, and he understands the reality you live in when trying to determine how, and how much, to save.


Once you decide to start saving, you quickly learn that savings accounts are not all the same. You need one with features and benefits that complement your savings goals.

A popular choice for ECCU missionary members is Money Market Savings. It’s an excellent short or long-term saving option—for things like home assignment, retirement or emergencies—it’s specifically designed around missionary needs. It includes a special rate exclusively to ECCU members that are full-time missionaries.

How have you have been able to incorporate saving money into your funding plan? Comment below to let others know.
