Discovery Days

Various Cities, USA – Spend a day or a weekend on-site in a US city where AIM has an operating ministry team. Join the team for a cross-cultural experience, an ethnic meal, and valuable Q+A time. Get a preview of what diaspora work looks like in general, and observe specific ministries in action – such as English classes or refugee resettlement. Gain a better understanding of the scope, importance, and opportunity of reaching ethnic Africans here in America. Discovery Days runs about 4 times a year in multiple locations.

Summer “Dream Teams”

Europe – Two weeks of hands-on ministry through partnership with local organizations. Be equipped to share the good news of Jesus in an intentional manner alongside your teammates, while serving vulnerable communities in practical ways. Many of the people you meet will come from a Muslim background and you may be their first Jesus following friend. DREAM Teams are an excellent way to learn more about diaspora ministry and see first hand the opportunities to reach Africans throughout the diaspora. Applications for each summer team are due by the end of March.

US Summer Internships

Our summer internship is a short-term discipleship and mission training program that seeks to develop Christ-like character and instill basic skills for outreach among unreached people groups. Perfect for college interns with an international focus as well as churches who are looking to start their own ministry with immigrants and refugees.

Work to create a network within a local church of people interested in the work and among various ministries engaged in the work.

Toronto Outreach

Of people moving to Canada, Africans compose the third largest contingent after Asians (incl. Chinese, Indians and Pakistanis) and Europeans. Approximately 40% of Canada’s Africans live in Ontario, and of these, the highest percentage live in Toronto. As part of AIM’s Diaspora Outreach in Toronto, you’ll play a role in sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ in what the UN reports to be the most ethnically diverse city in the world.

You will evangelize through a variety of ministries depending on gifts, skills, and opportunities. Some ways include personal discipleship, youth ministry, and sports. There is also a need for orienting Quebec churches to Muslim outreach and welcoming Muslim seekers into their activities and congregation.

Urban Oregon Outreach Team

Serve Africans and other immigrants through a community center in an urban Oregon location which offers a number of different services including: ESL, computer classes, citizenship classes, and driver’s education classes. This popular center offers separate classes for men and women as well as a child care program that runs simultaneously for the 1-5 year olds who have nowhere to go during their mother’s classes. Through the platform that the community center provides, and living in community among unreached African immigrants, team members will seek to build relationships that open doors to share the gospel and make disciples.
