Endorsed Staff

UB Global comes alongside a number of missionaries from United Brethren churches who serve with other organizations. By granting “endorsed” status, UB Global is basically telling the UB constituency, “These are missionaries you should consider supporting.” They are grouped according to the country where actually live, though some living in the USA have a focus on a specific country.
