About Planning


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

Every day we strive to share Christ through bold, biblical, relational evangelism and by planting thriving churches. 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 to new places and groups—until it has reached every nation—and our vision of multiplying leaders, churches and missions movements among every people, is fulfilled.

Making a Difference in 2020


While God continues to humble us and teaches us new things each day, we have 94 years of experience sharing the love and hope of Jesus Christ with peoples in more than 85 countries around the world. We are gospel-centered and rooted in conservative, baptistic theology. We strive to stay biblically contextualized, effective, and adaptable to the diverse peoples and cultures to which we minister.


ABWE isn’t just one ministry—we’re a growing family of ministries united around our central purpose to make disciples. Each ministry exists under the full direction of ABWE leadership and core values and is a fully-owned subsidiary.
