The missionary life is a less-traveled path for a reason. It’s challenging and humbling work. But Jesus’ call remains: To join him in his mission to seek and save the lost; To step out in obedience, into the unknown, into the unexpected. This is an extraordinary call – meant for ordinary people like you.

Our vision is to see Christ-centered churches established and thriving among all of Africa’s peoples. Whether you are new to missions, or come with unique skills and experience, there’s a place for you.

Training and Mentoring Programs

AIM trains and mentors both full term and short-term workers for cross-cultural ministry through immersive on-field programs.


Inbound is a one-year on-boarding program designed to help new missionaries land well and become equipped to faithfully serve in long-term ministry. Inbound is often the first step to serving on a church planting team.

The 'GO' Program

For short-term workers, the Go Program is a two-month discipleship and mission training program that seeks to develop Christlike character and instill basic skills for outreach among unreached people groups.

Church Planting Teams

Church planting is at the heart of what we do. Through long-term, immersive teams we live among those we seek to reach – learning language and culture, building relationships, and sharing Christ. Teams can be found in every context: Remote villages. Urban centers. Even in places that restrict gospel workers. Use your gifts or skills as you engage in outreach among an unreached people group and raise up Christ-centered churches. Join an existing team or begin a new work together. View the Teams Catalog to learn about upcoming teams.

“Cross-cultural relationships are hard work but very rewarding. It’s an amazing, life-affirming experience to grow with friends from different cultures, helping one another know God’s grace in each other’s lives; And its something that you can’t really know – at least not in the same way or to the same degree – if you don’t build those relationships across cultures.”
