About Us

You have hope to share. We’re here to help you share it.

Since 1992 ANM has helped individual Christians and local churches get involved in global missions in ways that make sense for them. Because we believe there’s a place for everyone in God’s global mission, even if you can’t travel to distant countries and remote tribes.

Why “Native” missions? 

Instead of sending American missionaries to other countries, we send and equip native missionaries to serve in their own countries. They already know the local languages and cultures, and they live on local budgets. That means your donation goes farther than with traditional “foreign missions.” This way of doing missions also contributes to local leadership, long-term outcomes, sustainable growth, and positive economic impact for communities.

The Impact of Your Donation

Your donation to ANM supports native Christian workers who are already accustomed to the languages, cultures, and living standards where they live, so you can accomplish more with less while participating in the global body of Christ.

A promise that keeps us moving forward

In Matthew 24:14, Jesus made a promise to His people — “This gospel of the kingdom will be preached among all nations.” We believe that’s true and that every Christian has a part to play in that mission. That’s what keeps us moving forward until our vision is fulfilled: that all people everywhere will hear the story of Jesus.
