Joanne and Ron Birtcher

Joanne and Ron Birtcher were born and raised in Christian families; their parents understood and taught them the Lord’s expectations for marriage, child rearing and lifestyle.  They believe that Christian values are the foundation for strong families.

By having sustained Christ’s values in their marriage and faith, they have learned that it is only through Jesus Christ that their salvation and eternal life have been granted.  Their prayer is that the Birtcher family might all continue in the Lord’s hands and always seek His presence and guidance, that the love for Christ will be actively shared with our children as well as the unsaved throughout the world.

Joanne and Ron have been greatly blessed, well beyond their expectations, and acknowledge the Lord’s hand in all that is and has been…their health, possessions and family.  It is their wish that this Foundation will be able to provide opportunity to others to know and experience this great truth as well.

Our Vision

The Birtcher Family Foundation exists to:

  • Spread the Good News of Jesus Christ and
  • Promote Christian values in foreign lands

We are inspired by the words of Jesus:

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 28:18-20

Our Values

We believe:

  • In teaching people the Word of God
  • The Gospel of Jesus Christ gives hope to the hopeless
  • In caring for “the least of these” –Matthew 25:37-40

As the Apostle Paul wrote:

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.  How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent?  As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”

Romans 10:13-15

Our Mission

Working in cooperation with churches and other Christian organizations, we provide grants for physical assets on foreign mission fields that are used to promote Christian evangelism and discipleship.

As Jesus said:

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.

Matthew 18:20
