So, why do we live by faith?

Would you believe this lifestyle of faith is the model given to us by Jesus, as well as Paul, and the missionary teams of the New Testament?  The book of Philippians begins with a thank you letter from Paul to his supporters!  

Ministry partnerships formed between missionaries and their supporters are invaluable – not only for the financial support, but for the invaluable prayer that comes with it.  We become accountable to our “investors” and reciprocate with communication that involves our partners in ministry.

We can only point to our Father in Heaven and the faithfulness of His people who listen and obey, and be amazed again and again at His constant flow of supply.

So, how can you help?

On our support team, there are various giving preferences.  Most give monthly, others like to give a yearly gift, while others prefer to give towards specific needs.  

There are various ways to send your financial support:

North Coast Church attendees can simply drop a check in the offering, be sure to write “Missions: Skarnas” in the memo.

Tax deductible donations can also be made through YWAM, by check to UofN. Don’t write in the memo, but do attach a separate note stating it’s for Skarnas -Account 5484.  Mail to
