Who We Are

AFM is committed to going where the need is greatest, planting indigenous churches among the largest and least evangelized peoples in the world in the 10/40 window. Although 67 generations have come and gone since Jesus' resurrection, over 2 billion people are still unreached. This Unseen 1/4th of the world has no geographic and/or cultural access (or limited access) to the Gospel. AFM mobilizes churches and sends short- and long-term missionaries to do pioneer, frontier missions, to areas where a viable and visible church still does not exist.

Our Vision

To plant biblically-based, indigenous churches where the church is not, among the 2 billion people and 6,000+ unreached people groups still waiting to hear the Gospel for the very first time.

Partnering with members of the world-wide Anglican Communion and other Christians who live near or among unreached peoples, AFM equips and sends short-term, mid-term, and long-term missionaries.

Our Values

PRAYERFUL

We fervently look to the Lord in prayer for our discernment, direction, and decisions.

INDIGENOUS

We respect and appropriately adopt the ways of indigenous cultures.

COLLABORATIVE

We value mutually beneficial collaboration among Christians in the Global North and Global South for achieving our mission.

.

STRATEGIC

We apply the strategy coordinator model to church planting among unreached people groups.

Our Story

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." 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.

Now, decades later, AFM has sent out hundreds of missionaries. We go 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.
