I love knowing I’m a part of something God-sized. I love knowing that what I’m doing counts for eternity.

As Christians, there’s nothing more fulfilling than knowing we’re being used of God to accomplish His purposes. And through a broad range of ministries with Africa Inland Mission, men and women from many walks of life are finding deep fulfillment as they use their gifts and abilities to help build the kingdom of God in Africa.

Three Great Ways To Serve

Africa Inland Mission has short and long-term assignments in a vast array of ministry roles, all with the goal of helping to see our vision achieved: Christ-centered Churches Among All African PeoplesTell us your ministry interests so we can explore together how God can use you to build His church in Africa.

AIM Canada’s Ignite Short Term program includes ministry opportunities on teams or through individual placements which fit your personal gifts, training and passion.  Offering a broad range of ministry assignments, Ignite provides an excellent opportunity to learn firsthand what missions is all about and to explore your role in God’s worldwide work.

Ignite assignments vary depending on your interests and the needs on the field. Learn more about Ignite Short Term ministry here.


TIMO (Training in Ministry Outreach) is both a training program for new missionaries and an opportunity to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to one of Africa’s unreached or least-reached people groups.

Teams consist of 6 to 12 members in addition to team leaders— usually an experienced missionary couple. They live among a host people group for two years, learn the local language, study mission outreach through a defined curriculum, and apply what they learn in their community on a daily basis.   Learn more about TIMO here.


Full Term ministry is for those who want to invest in longer-term ministry. Ranging from a year to an entire career, AIM’s Full Term assignments enable believers to use their gifts, training and life experience to make a difference in world mission.  Full Term personnel form the foundation of the long term work of church planting among unreached African ethnic groups.

Assignment types and locations vary widely and placements are made in light of your ministry experience, gifts, training and skills, and interests. Learn more about Full Term ministries here.
