Opportunities to Serve

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. Contact us for information on upcoming events.

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.

2023 ‘GO’ Program / 4 Weeks / May-June

Facilitated by experienced missionaries and national leaders, “GO” is a short-term discipleship and mission training program that seeks to develop Christ-like character and to instill basic skills for outreach among unreached people groups. The objective of the Diaspora-focused GO Program is to expose men and women like you to incredible opportunities to share Christ’s love with immigrants and refugees living right here in America.

This is a great opportunity for both college interns with an international focus as well as churches who are looking to start their own ministry with refugees and immigrants. You and your GO teammates will begin your journey in Minneapolis for a week of training in cross-cultural outreach. You’ll then head to your team’s location in Oregon, Michigan, Virginia, or Georgia where you’ll work with a team leader who has served in both an African context and with immigrant and refugee ministry here in the U.S.
