God provides for the ministry of International Ambassadors for Christ through gift giving. Your giving matters. Your incredible generosity is transforming people from the inside out. Your faithful giving is what allows us to fuel our ministry, high-impact services, and events to pour into the lives of Chinese people. God is on the move.
We offer a number of ways for you to give to the ministry of International Ambassadors for Christ (IAfC)…
Cash Gifts by Mail
Please make checks payable to International Ambassadors for Christ and mail to: P.O. Box 545, Saint Charles, IL 60174-0545 USA. Please do not mail cash.
Online Automatic Bank Pay Gifts
Many banks offer the ability to make payments electronically through their Bill-pay website. Simply login to your bank’s web page and follow the instructions to set up International Ambassadors for Christ as a new payee.
To give via ACH Collections (Automated Clearing House) is a free secure, convenient, simple service. Make a one-time gift or set up a recurring monthly gift. Your gift pledge will be transferred directly each month from your bank account to ours. Each gift transaction will appear on your monthly bank statement making it easy to balance your account. You can enroll at any time, change your designated gift at any time, or cancel your participation at any time. All electronic payments are federally regulated for your protection. At the end of the calendar year you will receive an itemized year end statement from IAfC for tax purpose and matching with your financial records.
We encourage you to prayerfully consider this option because: You will save time, money and postage. Insures your support gets to the field on time. Allows us to operate unhindered when in the harvest fields or on international mission trips. Helps us to greatly reduce administrative processing and printing expenses. It’s a free bank service and you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that your gift arrives on time even when you are on vacation or forgot writing a check.
Credit Card Gifts
Donate with a debit or credit card to International Ambassadors for Christ via PayPal
*A Note about credit card giving: Many people utilize credit cards in place of checks or cash, paying the balance off in full at the end of every month. For these individuals we offer the option to give via credit card. However, some people carry ongoing credit card debt which is not paid off in full at the end of the month. We believe that a credit card should not be used for any purpose unless you intend to pay off the balance in full each month. If you are not doing this, we strongly discourage you from choosing the credit card option, and instead encourage you to consider ACH Collection option for your gift giving.

If you’re like most people, almost all of your wealth is tied up in your assets like stocks, business interests, or real estate, while only a fraction is in cash. And yet, all your giving is coming from that tiny piece of the pie. What if you stopped writing checks and started giving from your wealth instead? Asset-based gifts may include holdings such as stock, real estate, business interests or other personal property. We partnered with National Christian Foundation (NCF) to help process asset-based gifts. This video helps explain how asset-based giving may be beneficial to a donor.
