About Planning

Who is ABWE?

We are a missions agency with more than 85 years of experience helping missionaries start relevant, effective, creative & adaptable ministries in more than 70 countries.

We are PASSIONATE ABOUT JESUS

Our vision is to fulfill the Great Commission by multiplying leaders, churches, and missions movements among every people.

Everyday we strive to share His story of hope, build communities of faith, and serve the world with love. But we don’t just want to send missionaries. We want to spark global missions movements that extend beyond ourselves — where local leaders are trained, mission-minded churches are planted, and believers are compelled to carry the message of Jesus to every nation.

We want to disciple new believers and empower the local Church to pick up the torch of missions and carry the gospel into new places — until it has reached every nation — and our vision of multiplying leaders, churches and missions movements among every people, is fulfilled.

We are EXPERIENCED

While God continues to humble us and teaches us new things each day, we have more than 85 years of experience sharing the love and hope of Jesus Christ with people in more than 70 countries around the world. We remain rooted in conservative, baptistic theology, but we strive to stay relevant, effective, and adaptable to the diverse cultures where we minister.

WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE

THEOLOGY
100+ Bible-training programs minister to thousands of students around the world.

EVANGELISM

CHURCH PLANTING
5,000+ churches have been planted by ABWE and its nations partners, to date.

We Are SERVANTS

We know that the idea of foreign missions has a lot of uncertainties, questions, and paperwork. At ABWE, we try to make yielding to God’s call, and serving on a mission field, a little bit easier.

We work hand-in-hand with our more than 900 missionaries and their more than 500 sending churches to ensure that they are supported and equipped with a deep theological understanding, practical financial and ministry help, donor support, and unified teammates who are working together to accomplish the great work of the Great Commission.

We Are STEWARDS

We know that the resources we have been entrusted with are not our own; they are given to us by God through our generous and faithful supporters. We are committed to being good stewards of those resources and ensuring that they are used to make the maximum impact for the Kingdom of God.

We are accredited by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), an agency dedicated to helping Christian Ministries earn and maintain the public’s trust through responsible stewardship.

WE NEED YOU

Everything we do is made possible by our loving God, the faithfulness of our local churches, & our generous donors. Each year more than 4,500 churches & 20,000 individuals sacrificially give to support our missionaries, ministries, & projects.
