Partnerships & Affiliations
Adventist Frontier Missions (AFM) seeks to work in close cooperation with the Seventh-day Adventist Church and other organizations to reach unreached peoples.
AFM begins a project only after first receiving an invitation from the Adventist Church in that part of the world and signing an agreement with them. AFM has signed agreements with every world division of the Adventist Church. These agreements list specific areas of cooperation, mutual support and collaboration in outreach. In addition, we have a General Conference representative on our Board of Directors.
AFM’s board policies state our intention to work hand in hand with the Church.
- 1.2.6 Integrate self-sustaining, self-propagating, and self-supporting churches into the oversight of the local mission/conference.
- 1.2.10 Foster church-planting efforts in world regions by training and utilizing local lay personnel.
- 1.3.6 Commitment to cooperate with the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.

Adventist Frontier Missions has partnered with Abundant Life (ABL), a South African mission organization which equips young people to take the word of God to the streets and into the homes of “every tongue, kindred and nation.” Abundant Life will support and help establish the AFM presence in South Africa (known as AFM South Africa Trust) and also create a support team to train and equip missionaries that want to serve the unreached in the world. If you would like to know more about ABL, visit the Abundant Life website.
AFM has an agreement with Gospel Outreach and the Adventist Church to reach the displaced Tibetans of northern India. Gospel Outreach is dedicated to extending the international ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in what’s known as the 10/40 Window of the world. It raises funds for local evangelists in some of the world’s poorest countries.
