About Us

ABOUT AIMS

There are billions of people who have never heard the name of Jesus Christ, and who will die without hope. Churches want to reach the world’s unreached. They want to make a measurable impact in regions that need the gospel most. 

That is where AIMS comes in. AIMS is a strategic network of international ministry leaders and missions experts who connect churches with strategies to reach the unreached.

 

Here’s how we do it:

  1. We provide training for strategic cross-cultural ministry designed to make a lasting impact.
  2. We help churches and individuals “adopt” the world’s least reached people, with the goal of establishing church planting movements in their midst.
  3. We help build alliances with other churches, agencies, and individuals who will partner with them in the region they have chosen.
  4. We partner with and train national missionaries to plant churches among the unreached people in their region.

 

AIMS is uniquely equipped to accomplish these objectives:

  • Since 1985, AIMS has trained over 170,000 pastors and leaders worldwide to engage in cross-cultural ministry and church-planting movements among the world’s least reached people groups.
  • Since 1985, AIMS national partners have planted more than 51,000 churches.
  • As a result, an estimated 34.3 million people have heard the Gospel, most for the first time, and approximately 3.1 million people have found Christ.

 

Out of these rich experiences over the past three decades, AIMS has developed strategic mission epicenters in key nations on all 6 continents. These epicenters exist in high-priority locations where there is extreme need and extreme potential for regional transformation. The “strategic alliances” in these areas help to coordinate the many regional church planting efforts, ensuring that no team has to work alone.

AIMS also trains indigenous churches in these epicenters and all over the world. We teach them how to reach the unreached in their own nations through fervent prayer, sacrificial giving, sending, partnering with other churches, and assisting others to do the same.

AIMS exists to empower western churches to take the Gospel where it has never gone, and to mobilize strategic partners to proclaim the Kingdom of God to the remaining unreached people groups around the world. We believe that if the church works together, we can see the “Great Commission” become the “Great Completion.”

OUR CORE VALUES

KINGDOM

We recognize our need for reliance on God and global partnership with the Body of Christ to fulfill our ministry in His Kingdom.  Matthew 5:1-11, 6:33; I Timothy 6:15-16

PRAYER

We understand and value that prayer is the first work of missions and the ongoing work of missions. God’s Kingdom is advanced through prayer and spiritual warfare.  Psalm 2:8; John 14:13-14; I John 5:14-15; Luke 10:2

LOVING PEOPLE

We value the well-being of those we serve, and we serve with higher motives then the accomplishment of ministry tasks alone.  Matthew 22:39; I Corinthians 13:1-3; John 13:34-35, 15:12; I John 3:16; Philippians 2:3-4; Ephesians 5:1

INTEGRITY

We value holding true to our word, following through on our commitments, and presenting ourselves with authenticity. Psalm 15:4; Matthew 5:37; Proverbs 28:13

STRATEGIC

We value ministry initiatives that will accelerate the completion of the Great Commission—reaching all unreached people groups. Matthew 24:14, 28:18-20; II Peter 3:11-12

EMPOWERING

We value ministry that equips churches to do self-initiated strategic missions.  Ephesians 4:11-12; II Timothy 2:2; Acts 1:8, 13:1-3; Romans 1:11

FERVENCY

We value being spiritually proactive and passionate, not passive but ruthless against sin and anything contrary to God’s will. Not just being busy, but strategically proactive.  Romans 12:11; Colossians 4:12; Jude 12; II Corinthians 7:7; Isaiah 59:17; I Peter 1:22, 4:8; II Timothy 1:16, 4:7; John 2:17; I Timothy 4:6
