ANM serves as a bridge between over 250 native ministries in the field and the church in the West, fostering relationships to equip these native missionaries to be the hands and feet of God in reaching the remaining unreached around the world. Meet some of our partners in each region of the world below. What is native missions?
Latin America | Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru
Although the Church in Latin America is rapidly increasing in numbers, there are still more than 70 unreached people groups in this region awaiting a Gospel witness.
Europe | Belgium, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Hungary, Macedonia, Moldova, Republic of Georgia, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Ukraine
21st century Europe is home to entire ethnic groups who have never heard the Gospel. Many large cities have no evangelical church presence. The population includes secularized citizens, immigrant Muslims, and people groups representing every nation in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. They are diverse in nationality and culture, yet all are in desperate need of the truth of Jesus Christ.
Africa | Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Cote D’Ivore, Djibouti, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Niger, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Somaliland, South Africa, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, Zimbabwe
It has been said that the center of Christianity is shifting to Africa, so there is a great need to faithfully stand with our missionary partners as they trust God to supply their needs and equip the Body of Christ to sustain the ever-expanding work.
South Asia | India, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Maldives, Pakistan, Sri Lanka
In this populous region, majority communities of Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhists often make life difficult for minority Christian communities. The combined forces of religion and politics present a distorted view of the Gospel, a challenge to new believers from the majority communities.
Southeast Asia | Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Laos, Vietnam
Southeast Asia includes the world’s largest Muslim country—Indonesia—Myanmar (Burma), where “to be Burmese is to be Buddhist,” and other countries where being a Christian brings numerous difficulties. Despite the challenges, effective native workers are quickly reducing the number of unreached people groups in this region.
Far East | China, North Korea
Boasting the largest population of any country in the world, China is home to approximately 1.5 billion people. It is also home to the largest church in the world with as many as 150 million believers. North Korea is the most closed country in the world. While persecution is widespread, the underground Church continues to move ever forward.
