Registration and Dinner
Main Session 1: Relationships are critical in the life of faith and the consideration of missions. Begin new ones by getting to know AIM staff and other attendees, and then build from there a common foundation as we dive into God’s Word and the core of AIM.
Dessert and Coffee
Main Session 2: Choosing an agency is no small decision, so we hope to provide you with extra fodder for your consideration. Dive into the work happening on the field, learn about AIM’s international sending approach, and glimpse into the behind-the-scenes functioning of the office you’re sitting in. We’ll even have some fun in the process.
Breakout Sessions 1
Breakout Sessions 2
Main Session 3: Don’t just hear it from us, hear it from our members who have given and are giving their lives to make Christ’s name known among the unreached. Listen to the stories and ministries of workers across varied contexts, and have the opportunity to ask anything and everything on your mind.
Senders/goers breakout sessions: You’ve likely heard about our three options as Christ-followers: “Go, send, or disobey.” As our time together draws to a close, you’ll have the choice to further consider and discuss one of those two in smaller, interactive groups. You can guess which one we’ve left out.
Conclusion and Dinner
Outreach & Training Teams: At the heart of AIM’s work and history are church-planting teams. Gain a glimpse into the life and ministry of these teams that share Christ and train up new workers.
Creative Access Nations & Business as Mission: A vast majority of unreached people groups live in nations where individuals cannot enter on a missionary visa. Let’s consider together what it takes to reach them.
Theological Education & Mobilizing the African Church: With many African believers and churches proximate to the unreached, training up current and future church leaders is critical to the remaining task. Learn more here.
AIM’s Support Services (AIM Air, AIM Care, TCK Education, Administration): The work of church-planting among the unreached is not possible without the people behind the scenes working to sustain it. How will you rely on – or contribute to – their vital services?
Walking with the Local Church and Caring for our Members: We love the local church, and trust that you do too! Whether a church leader or member, we want to think wisely and deeply about being ‘fellow workers for the truth’.
Journeying Together: Steps to the Field: So you’re interested in going, but what does the path look like from here to there? Join this mini-breakout to discuss the practical steps along the way.
“The staff of AIM all understand the vision and purpose of AIM clearly. They engaged with us relationally and professionally. They are clearly centered around God and actively engaged in prayer and listening to God’s call and voice.”
“What influenced me were the people – godly people that walked the walk and talked the talk.”
“There is feeling of family and unity.”
