In 1993, the Reverend Tad de Bordenave founded AFM in Richmond, Virginia. A well-respected leader and pastor in the USA, Tad took a 15-week class called, “Perspectives on the World Christian Movement” (Click here for Perspectives Course information). The course changed his life. He realized that there were 1.6 billion people outside the Anglican Communion without access to the Gospel. After 17 years as senior rector of St. Matthews Church, Richmond, he resigned his position to begin Anglican Frontier Missions at the age of 49.
Decades later AFM has sent out hundreds of missionaries to the the ends of the earth, to the areas least-reached with the Gospel, and to peoples with little to no cultural and/or geographical access to the Gospel.
