Description of Organisation:
The mission of AFM is to see churches planted among the 25 largest and least evangelised people groups in the world. They train and send missionaries and work in co-operation with other agencies in these areas, making full use of new technology and research.
They also bring to the attention of the church the 20 % of the world that is, 1.7 billion lost souls, that the church has neglected. AFM seeks to give a greater emphasis on unreached people group research, church planting and deployment of missionaries to these people groups, most of whom live outside the borders of the Anglican dioceses.
Programmes & Events:
AFM works toward mobilization of the world-wide Anglican Communion for work among the least evangelised. The US office of AFM has assisted several dioceses in Nigeria to form their own branch of Anglican Frontier Missions and is in the process of doing the same in India, East Africa and South Asia. The AFM branch in Nigeria and other parts of the Anglican Communion, although affiliated, function independently.
The training, research, team members, and the development and implementation of strategies all have the flavour of the world wide Body of Christ and is not confined to the Anglican Communion. Therefore, the churches planted will not necessarily be Anglican. Through our missionaries and agency, we represent and urge the Church to go to those overlooked, who may have no face before the Church, but are dearly loved before the face of God.
Area of work:
Middle East, North Africa , South Asia, China, India and Indonesia.
