When co-founders Carl Gordon and Bo Barredo stepped out in faith to start Advancing Native Missions in 1992, they prayed many prayers to the Lord.  Although there were tremendous needs for this new, small, non-profit Christian mission, one of the first primary prayers God placed in their hearts was to pray for a good team. In the twenty years that have followed, God has answered their prayer. He has added almost 70 members (including full-time, part-time, and volunteers) to the ANM family forming what some have called a “motley crew.”  Our staff is comprised of former school teachers, nurses, a pastor’s widow, engineers, and even some repentant lawyers.

Since those first days, God has also added many pastors and excellent Bible teachers.Our ANM family members have many things in common: God has called each one to ANM.  Jesus Christ is their Lord and Savior. They are godly, sacrificial, hard-working servants of the Lord.  None of them are here for what they can receive, but only for what they can give.  Everything they do is for the glory of God. Most of them raise their own financial and prayer support.Would you prayerfully consider supporting an ANM staff member with your prayers and generosity?  It would be a great blessing and encouragement for them to know that you are standing with them as they serve the native missionaries in preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the glory of God.

Thank you,
