Answering the Call: Ben Bell’s Passion for Serving Ministries
Prior to joining The Signatry, I was never in a full-time vocational ministry role, although I could consider full-time vocational ministry as “the family business.” My dad’s parents were medical missionaries in China, my dad was a pastor, one uncle was an evangelist, and another aunt and uncle were Korean missionaries.

But then the Lord told me to join The Signatry in the clearest way possible – that is all I needed, and all my analysis stopped. I joined the team three weeks later.Read More

Opening a donor advised fund at The Signatry only takes minutes and can be done online. No money is required to open a DAF initially, but when the donor is ready to fund their DAF, there are a variety of options available, including eCheck, credit card,…Read More
