As a missionary family the Wehmeyer’s believe it is of utmost importance to be transparent about the funds we are asking for and the funds in which we spend. We want to live there and be a blessing to those around us. While, at the same time, be able to feed our own family as well. We want to communicate first and foremost that it doesn't matter how much you are able to give each month. Whether it's $10 or $100 every dollar counts and allows you to take part in changing lives in Senegal. We want to say, "Thank You" for anything that you are able to give.
Whenever you give to #lovegoes you have the peace of mind that your financials will be handled with care as the Wehmeyer’s use those funds for the glory of the Kingdom in West Africa! We also wanted to take a moment to say thank you to our sending Church (Grace City Church) and Tiffany Isgriggs (CFO) for your help in financial accountability and transparency with our donors.

WHAT IS CTEN?
is a servant organization which helps missionaries fulfill the unique vision God has given them. CTEN partners with the missionary’s home church to send them to the field. Then, through administrative support CTEN gets funds to the missionary, provides accountability, counsel and helps the missionary remain on the field. Through pastoral care CTEN helps them remain effective and healthy while there.
Missionaries Serving Missionaries
Most of CTEN’s home staff raise their own support just as each CTEN Field Missionary does. This allows CTEN to keep overhead to a bare minimum and the vast majority of each donor’s contribution to reach the intended missionary and project.
A core value of CTEN is caring for God’s most valued resource, His people. A Pastoral Care couple personally stays in touch with each missionary from the time of their application, throughout their time on the field and through re-entry to the home culture if the missionary leaves the field. This pastoral care couple works with the missionary’s sending church to provide counsel, prayer, support and regular onsite visits to the field of service.
How CTEN missionaries are “paid”?
Like most of its support staff, CTEN missionaries are dependent upon the faithfulness of the Lord and His people for their financial support. Friends, family, churches and others who believe in the work of the missionary send their contributions to CTEN. These contributions can be large or small, sent monthly or periodically.
Each missionary is dependent upon your help to fund and continue their ministry.
How does CTEN afford to operate?
CTEN maintains the highest standards of financial accountability and transparency.
