ABWE Missionary Handbook

The ABWE handbook is designed to provide a broad framework within which all of our missionary personnel are free to carry out their ministry and use their gifts and abilities for the glory of God. The current handbook supersedes all prior editions and copies of the Principles & Practices. All statements of policy in this document are intended by the president and board to be consistent with the Word of God, the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws of ABWE Ministries, Inc., and ABWE International, Inc. as well as federal, state, local, and international laws. This document prepared by the ABWE administration has been approved by the ABWE board. Every board member, administrative leader, and missionary must abide by this handbook.
