Why the fee?

MDE is a service organization, meaning we provide these services for a fee. The student fee is only $25 per month, compared to the $50 per month for regular membership. This minimal fee allows us to retain full-time staff for the continued development of Disciple-Making Employees (DMEs), mentors, building networks and the tools needed to provide support to members while abroad.
