Reduced overseas membership

We have taken note of concerns from some countries about the affordability of membership, and are pleased to offer a new reduced rate in countries with Gross National Income per capita less than 10,000 US dollars.  We hope this will enable churches with smaller resources to continue enjoying RSCM membership. Please enquire for details by emailing membership@rscm.com.
