What a remarkable organization! It has been one of my life’s greatest experiences and blessings to be involved with Advancing Native Missions. – Ruth Graham
Because they live at the local economic level, most missionaries can be fully supported for as little as $250 per month.
They come from the same place as those they minister to
They know the languages of the ethnic groups around them
They are familiar with local customs, lifestyles, and religions
Highly Effective, Economical Missions
- Fewer Barriers – 60% of people with no access to a thriving church in their language live in countries where Americans cannot go as missionaries. Local Christians in these areas have more freedom to move, live, and work.
- Lower Cost – Indigenous missionaries live at the local economic level, which makes their work more cost-effective than traditional “sending” missions. American missionaries who go to a foreign culture often require up to 20 times the annual investment compared to local missionaries serving in or near their home countries.
- Local Expertise – Indigenous Christians are already accustomed to local languages, cultures, and religions.
I can’t go to all the missions fields out there. But there are Christians on the front lines sharing with people who haven’t heard. So every soul that’s won, every pastor encouraged, every church built — I can be a part of it. – Susan, ANM supporter since 2000
