“I have learned to observe before critiquing, to listen before speaking, to pray before acting, to abide while obeying and to abandon my rights while believing in His Righteousness.”
Maybe you’ve been thinking about serving in short-term missions for a while now. Maybe you sense that God has been prompting you to take that step of faith. But, maybe you’re feeling a little… inexperienced? One of AIM’s short-term teams could be exactly what you’re looking for.
Many of our experienced missionaries would love to mentor and equip you as you learn how to use your gifts for God’ Kingdom. Find out which team is right for you.
Based in Africa and facilitated by experienced missionaries and national leaders, GO is a two month discipleship and mission training program that seeks to develop Christ-like character and instill basic skills for outreach among unreached people groups. GO combines curriculum-based learning with hands-on experience to help equip young men and women for the Great Commission.
What will I do?
- Spend 2 weeks studying in a discipleship program. Topics will include spiritual disciplines, spiritual warfare, basic language acquisition, and cross-cultural living
- In pairs, you will be placed with a mentor and live among an unreached people group for 5 weeks
- Spend 1 week with other participants to debrief and share your experiences.
Who can serve?
We are seeking individuals age 19-29 who have a strong desire to bring the Gospel to the unreached. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone who may want to consider long term cross cultural ministry. We are seeking 8-10 people for each team.

What fuels you? We are praying that the Lord will cause the hearts of single men from around the world to burn more intensely for the Gospel of Christ to be preached in the hard to reach areas.
What will I do?
Live and breathe missions. Be taught, discipled, and mentored while living in a remote location where there is little to no church presence. You will work alongside experienced missionaries and local leaders. You will be partnered with a national Christian man who will be learning about missions with you. Not only will you fuel your passion for outreach, but you will also encourage the African Church to fuel her heart for the unreached.

Young single men. We are looking to recruit up to 6 members for each team
