Modern Day exists to build bridges between those who are called to go into all the world and those who are called to send them. Our mission is to partner in the equipping of missionaries and to facilitate their needs as they prepare to go and as they serve out in the field.

Our Vision is to help thousands of people, young and old, pursue their dreams of reaching the world for Jesus; one person, one city and one nation at a time. Our desire is to form partnerships that pave the way for people to serve in another country for both short and long term periods. We are currently working with over 300 missionaries.

We invite you to partner with us as we labor together for the success of these endeavors. One way is give a tax-deductible gift to Modern Day. We are continuously adding new field workers and your support would be greatly appreciated. Secondly, if you know someone that is interested in serving in another country, we encourage you to spread the word of the services Modern Day provides. Together we can make a difference!


The world is rapidly changing, and with it the face of the foreign mission field. Technology, travel, rapid urbanization, along with other factors are filling the modern mission field with exciting new opportunities. It is an incredible blessing to have the support and friendship of a mission agency that is positioned and open to addressing and supporting us in this kind of nimble environment. We know that Modern Day has our back with not just the necessary donation processing, but they go way beyond by being strategic thinkers who understand social media and technology platforms. Working alongside the Modern Day team has been a breath of fresh air and a blessing we tell other missionaries about all the time. We are grateful to be part of the tribe.

Danny Gutierrez - Peru

When God first put this dream for brazil in our hearts in 2008 we didn't have any idea how we would receive donations and manage partners. Modern day was fairly new at the time but it sounded like just what we needed so I got in touch with Elias. We signed up and Modern Day has been helping us live the dream in Brazil ever since."
