Welcome to Christian Aid Mission

Founded in 1953, Christian Aid Mission seeks to establish a witness for Christ for every nation by assisting indigenous ministries in lands of poverty, where Christians are a persecuted minority, and where foreign missionaries are not allowed.

We evaluate every indigenous ministry we assist to verify their faith, financial integrity and fruitfulness. Then we help them sustain and grow their work by making their needs known to believers in developed nations who supply them with prayer and financial support.

The ministries we assist are fully independent and not affiliates of Christian Aid Mission. They are led by evangelical Christians who live and work inside of their own countries.

Christian Aid Mission works with hundreds of indigenous ministries that share the gospel of Christ with more than 1,700 unreached people groups in eight regions of the world: Africa, China, Europe, former Soviet Union, Latin America, Middle East, South Asia, Southeast Asia.

Indigenous missionaries bring the gospel into homes throughout Africa.

The family patriarch would ultimately decide, but the arrival of an indigenous missionary would determine the name's meaning – as native missionaries throughout Africa bring meaning to people's lives.
