VOM Use of Finances
Below you will find VOM's most recent audited financial statement.
We use the resources entrusted to us to pursue the aims of our five main purposes, which we have based on Hebrews 13:3. In the course of using funds to fulfill our main purposes we incur some general and administrative expenses. We attempt to keep these to a minimum by using a large number of volunteer hours each year. In 2010, VOM volunteers gave more than 40,700 hours. This is the equivalent of 20 full-time employees, a saving in salaries of more than $450,000! We are thankful to those who give their time to serve the persecuted church.
We praise the Lord for allowing us to carry the message of the persecuted church to the millions of Christians around the United States and the world who can be challenged and encouraged by the stories of our brothers and sisters in Christ who suffer for their Christian witness. We are committed to spreading their stories in order to encourage a fellowship among all believers.
