Moving missions with the stroke of a pen.
In the cause of the Great Commission, giving is no passive task. It is the invisible force behind this massive undertaking – enabling those who are called to actually go. For AIM, the generous and sacrificial giving of our partners fuels innumerable activities and strategies and sustains hundreds of families. It gives wings to the gospel, allowing it to spread to the ends of the earth. Who knew writing a check (or clicking “Give”) could be so thrilling?

Planned Giving and Estate Design
Leave a legacy
During their lifetime, many Christians create an estate but do not know how to effectively pass on the estate in a manner in which they can give MORE! More to their heirs and to the charities that they love. Our complimentary estate and gift design services can provide you with valuable information that allows you to reach your goals and receive great benefits, through planned giving. And more importantly, leave a personal testimony of your faith and trust in Jesus Christ.
Serving as a Sender
The missionary endeavor can be a costly one. When Jesus gave the charge to go and make disciples of all nations, he knew more than anyone what it would require. The cost for those who have answered this call has been borne out through the ages in acts of self sacrifice, hard work, and even suffering. And the cost to the Church, no less a sacrifice, has been in faithfully sending and supporting these workers for the harvest.
Some of this support structure is found in mission agencies like AIM, which provide vision and direction as well as a variety of practical, logistical, and spiritual help to a missionary on the field. But the task of specifically and sacrificially praying for and financing missionary work is ultimately a responsibility, and privilege, of the Church. This is a Biblical model and largely how missions is still done today.
AIM missionaries, likewise, depend month to month and year to year on networks of congregations and individual Christians who commit to be prayer and financial partners – people who may not themselves be called to move to Africa, but who choose to be a part of God’s provision for the sending of another.
Practically, this may simply mean mailing a check each month or taking time out of a busy schedule or church program to pray. But partnership is so much more. Supporting a missionary means that you take ownership in the people and the ministry their work represents. Both the trials and the triumphs are yours too. You’ll be more compelled to pray when the news is hard. More joyful when it’s good. You’ll get to know an individual or a family more intimately because you’ll have journeyed together through something unpredictable and wonderful. The missionary will become your hands and feet to serve God’s purposes in a far-away land, and you will become to them a manifestation of God’s faithfulness and provision. Your vested friendship will lend affirmation to their calling, accountability to their work, and encouragement to their hearts.
Missionary support, offered up in prayers and dollars, is really an investment in people – an investment in the missionaries themselves, but also in the people they are reaching. There is no price that can be placed on such an endeavor. In Africa, a work may take five years or forty. It may require simple methods or complex and expensive ones. And it might cost more than just money – a reminder of why prayer is so vital.
Whatever the cost, the work of the Great Commission is worth it. And to be caught up in it – as those who go or those who support them – is a blessing beyond measure.
