The Need

Our sole purpose is to hasten the coming of Jesus by giving unreached people the opportunity to know Him and become His disciples. We are the only Seventh-day Adventist ministry focused solely on the unreached. God’s instructions are clear: His people must take the everlasting Gospel to every nation, tribe, language and people (Rev. 14:6). Then the end will come.

  • There are nearly 7,000 unreached people groups representing more than 2 billion people.
  • Out of every 1,000 Gospel workers worldwide, only 14 serve among the unreached.
  • Out of every $100 given for Christian ministry worldwide, less than one penny goes to help reach the unreached.

Is this status quo acceptable? Absolutely not! Every day, thousands of people die without any knowledge of Christ or the salvation He gave His life to purchase for them. The unreached are waiting for someone to tell them.

Who are the unreached? They are people groups, often isolated behind barriers of geography, language and prejudice, who have no access to Gospel truth because there is no viable Christian presence among them. 86 percent of unreached people groups live in the 10/40 Window, which stretches from northeastern Africa across southern Asia between 10 and 40 degrees north latitude.

Our Unique Approach

AFM works among unreached people groups that have no Adventist presence. Once a solid foundation is established, our missionaries begin discipling and training new believers to carry the work forward.

This evangelism model not only empowers local believers, it enables the Seventh-day Adventist Church to grow and expand in areas previously unentered. Many of the areas where AFM works are highly resistant to the Adventist Church for social, political or ethnic reasons. Our unique cross-cultural approach to evangelizing unreached people groups breaks down these barriers and allows for exponential growth. The key steps of this process are outlined in our Church-Planting Cycle page. When an AFM project is complete, its churches are handed over to the leadership of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Give Your Best

Scripture invites us to give God “unblemished offerings,” our “first fruits,” and our best. God gave the best He had when He sent His Son to an obscure, sin-filled planet. His example should challenge us when we look at the billions of people sitting in spiritual darkness and sin in far-off lands.

The Patience of the Saints

Whether in good or hard times, with our eyes on the eternal prize, we commit to redoubling our efforts to bring the gospel to every unreached people group, for then the end will come, all human suffering will come to an end, and the need for hupomone is no more.

I Am Thankful

This time, when I look at all the lit apartments, rather than feeling sorry for myself, I see people in need, people desperate for someone to come and share the gospel, someone who will lead them to Jesus. That someone is me. That someone is you.

There is Hope

As Christians, you and I have real hope. Hope for a future without pain, suffering and death. Hope that Jesus will make all things right. You and I can share this hope in Christ with those who do not yet know.

Faith in Action

Every aspect of AFM ministry depends on faithfulness—from missionaries to new believers among the unreached to donors who support the work, education of children, and AFM’s ministry. Faithfulness truly is a virtue. May the Lord bless all who possess it.
