How We Support Indigenous Ministries

Most ministries that support native (indigenous) missions adhere to a Western missions model, meaning they hire native missionaries to carry out their organization’s vision.

In contrast, AIM does not seek to control the work of native missions. Rather, we support their individual vision by supporting them financially while they remain entirely independent.

In today’s world, indigenous workers are effectively reaching their own people with the Gospel. When the Lord calls them, they do not wait for financial support. They begin with whatever resources they have. Most of these workers have no fundraising knowledge or experience. They depend on God to provide for the work He has given to them.

Before AIM recommends any ministry for support, a thorough evaluation and on-site visits are conducted. We understand the importance of accountability, and we hold these ministries to the highest standards through frequent communication, written reports of their work, and periodic trips to the field.
