Frequently Asked Questions

What happens after I give a gift?

We send your donation to our native partners around the world. They serve in their own countries, speak the local languages, understand the local cultures and religions, and live at the local economic level. Our native partners purchase the designated items locally and use them to deliver help and hope in Jesus’ name. They share the gospel, start churches, and care for the poor in the world’s unreached, marginalized, and forgotten communities. Together we make a difference in lives around the world!

Where will my gift go?

Your gift will be sent to our trusted native partners in one of almost 100 countries. Each partner is working to share the gospel with local people who desperately need to hear that God loves them, so your gift will make an impact wherever it goes.

What if an item receives more donations than needed?

That would be wonderful! Any extra funds will be distributed in the form of other highly needed items that will transform lives and spread the gospel around the world.

Who is ANM?

As Christians, we all want other people to experience the gospel that has transformed our lives. But it can be difficult to find the best way to make a difference as a Christian, especially beyond your local community. For the past 28 years ANM (Advancing Native Missions) has helped thousands of Christians and hundreds of churches get involved in global outreach that transforms lives and communities in the name of Jesus.

What does “Native Missions” in your name mean?

Instead of sending foreign missionaries abroad, we partner with native Christians who live in or near their homelands. They already know the language and culture of the people they serve, and they are accustomed to the physical climate, religious customs, and political systems of the communities they work in. They also live at the local economic level, meaning that your donation goes farther than with traditional foreign missions. All of our partners are rigorously vetted, gospel-centered, and fruitful. They purposefully focus their work on places without a thriving local church.

Give a bicycle so a church planter or pastor can travel to multiple churches in an area.

Equip church planters

The people of the village of Tsave, Togo, used to practice a mixture of Islam and local spiritual traditions. There was no church, and no Christians lived there.

It may seem impossible that any place would have no access at all to the gospel, but this is true for villages and even entire ethnic groups around the world.

Someone has to deliver the good news to them.

For the people of Tsave, that happened when a worker from a ministry two hours away arrived on a motorcycle and shared the gospel with the village chief. Soon the chief and six of his helpers began following Jesus. More than 100 others followed.

Ministry workers equipped with bicycles or motorcycles can access distant communities to share the gospel. In many places, these workers themselves can be supported for as little as $250 a month.

Will you help the good news of Jesus make it to the next village by equipping native Christian workers?
