Other Ways to Serve


Skilled professionals or teachers can serve by acquiring employment with foreign companies, institutions or governments to work abroad. They work with the intent to use their talents to develop relationships and win the unreached to Christ. In some countries, tentmaking is the only way to reach seemingly inaccessible people.

AFM offers coaching and support to tentmaker missionaries.

To learn more or to join the tentmaker community, visit our GoTential website at www.gotential.org.


Do you want to visit a project and volunteer while you are on site? Would you like to take a church or student group on a mission trip to one of our projects?

Prayer Warriors

Our missionaries depend on your prayers not only for their success, but for their very survival. We invite you to commit today to uphold these missionary families in prayer as they take the wonderful news of Christ to people who have never heard.
