Why AFM has Opened International Sister Agencies:
AFM Inc. has established in cooperation with local Adventist leaders a network of international sister missionary recruitment agencies to provide a contextualized door to front-line mission service for new missionaries from Africa, Latin America, South Korea, Canada and Europe. Each of these locations has specific regional legal, cultural, employment and HR concerns, and these concerns are best met through a local recruitment office with local leadership. Having a diverse recruitment base for front-line missionaries enables AFM to better match missionaries with their unique linguistic, technical and spiritual gifts with the spiritual needs of the unreached. AFM Inc. provides coordination, network office capacity building, and ongoing mentoring for the leadership of the network offices to ensure ongoing integration of these new missionary supply lines with the needs of front-line church planting projects.
