The Equipping for Excellence Fund
Perspectives is growing—over 3,000 volunteers co-labor with us each year!
Equipping leaders within the Perspectives movement is a crucial component that enables us to grow and maintain the momentum God has granted.
Providing excellent training is vital for mobilizing people through educating the Body of Christ.
Each year we host dozens of workshops in-person and online to equip these passionate workers on the front lines of the Perspectives movement. We are continually improving our training materials and workshops to provide excellent training so our volunteers can serve effectively.
Your donation to the Equipping for Excellence Fund helps cover the cost of conducting workshops for training and certifying Coordinators, Instructors, Mentors, and coordinating team members.
Your donation to the Equipping for Excellence Fund has a multiplying effect.
Each dollar you give impacts people—not only the volunteers being equipped, but the new students being mobilized, and ultimately the people in unreached people groups who embrace Jesus.
Please join us to provide the best training available for mobilizing people to strategic engagement in God’s global purpose.
Thank you for investing in this strategic work!
The Digital Advance Fund
Perspectives USA is an established leader in mobilization through education.
We are guided by biblically robust values, promoting the highest level of scholarship to best equip God’s people. We embrace present-day Christ-honoring practices to accomplish our vision.
The digital technology of our day is a strategic tool God has granted for advancing His Kingdom. The fabric of our culture now includes “digital threads” that weave us all together. Thriving as a ministry that mobilizes through education requires us to be on the cutting edge of technological change.
An Unseen Ministry
“Connection” is a word we use daily. We stay connected because the Information Technology behind our education ministry operates unnoticed. Keeping it running smoothly and staying current with the constant technological changes is a continuous challenge.
Most people are stunned when they learn about the vast digital needs for an organization our size. Our IT, Operations, and Communications departments serve not only new website visitors, but also students, volunteers, staff, partner organizations, donors, and instructors. It includes hosting our website with over 1,000 pages, creative software, accounting, an online grading system, an online support desk, and many other essential services. And it fuels our marketing and social media efforts—making connections possible.
Perspectives USA is making significant advances in our digital impact so our mission can thrive. The hardware, software, and expertise needed to maintain and improve our digital needs are a substantial portion of our budget.
Your donation helps fund the increasing digital needs of Perspectives USA and expands our reach exponentially.
The Perspectives Incorporation Project
Historic changes are taking place at Perspectives!
Forty-eight years ago, the Perspectives Study Program began as a ministry of Frontier Ventures. By God’s grace, remarkable growth has taken place since its inception.
Frontier Ventures is now launching Perspectives USA to become a distinct non-profit organization!
The union with Frontier Ventures has been a fruitful endeavor, but changes are necessary to facilitate a more effective and dynamic ministry.
Perspectives USA will remain deeply connected to Frontier Ventures through collaboration with staff and curriculum. Functioning as an independent organization enables Perspectives USA to pursue explosive growth as we mobilize the body of Christ.
Your gifts to this fund help defray the cost of incorporation and help make the process smooth and timely.
Not sure how you want to support the Perspectives movement?
The Where Needed Most Fund enables you to give to the critical needs of mobilizing people to engage in God's global purpose.
Each month new challenges arise where funds are needed. Your generosity enables us to meet those challenges so we can maintain our momentum of mobilizing through educating the Body of Christ.
Thank you for thinking of Perspectives and investing in this strategic work!
Your financial gift of blessing to us will be used to bless others.
People are the most important resource of any ministry team.
The Thriving Leaders Fund reflects and resources four of our organizational values: Leadership Development, Continuous Learning, Excellence, and Christ-like Relationships.
The continuous formation of leaders is crucial for accomplishing our mission and vision.
We pursue excellence in ministry through integrity, quality, and appropriate professionalism. Continuous learning provides growth in personal and professional skills. Opportunities for training and professional development empower staff and volunteers to give their very best to the work of the Lord (1 Cor 15:58).
Mobilizers are people in process.
Serving as a mobilizer involves challenges and stresses—unlike any other profession.
Crises come unannounced. Severe illness and family crises impact our staff and volunteers. The loss of loved ones or ministry colleagues and burnout may require compassionate professional counseling. Because one’s spiritual health includes mental, emotional, and physical health, we are committed to Christ-like member care of our staff.
Your donation to the Thriving Leaders Fund is an investment in Perspectives’ most valuable asset—our people.
Donations are for training and member care for staff and volunteers, not for salaries or expenses.

God has a "world-sized" role for each Christian in His global purpose. The primary issue is not whether you go to a distant country or stay in your home country. It's about embracing a vision for living a life of purpose. Discovering that vision makes the Perspectives course eternally valuable for every Christian who wants to grow as a disciple of Jesus.
