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.

Are We There Yet?

By using your skills and talents, you can make our aging vehicle, Model Earth Edition, start moving faster towards its ultimate destination: a rescue by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, at His second coming (2 Peter 3:11-12). Don’t complain that we have not made it to heaven yet. Do something about it instead—now!—and help us all get there sooner.

Over 40% of the world is still unreached and needs to hear about the salvation offered through Christ. Through human eyes, the remaining task is impossible and insurmountable. But the stories in the Bible demonstrate that what is impossible with man is possible with God.
