SIM in the Americas is an active highway for the sending and receiving of missionaries. SIM missionaries are sent from almost every country in the Americas to minister in countries throughout Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
Missionaries who work in Canada, the US, Guatemala, and Brazil serve mainly in mission mobilization. Each person does their part to see other missionaries sent to serve around the world.
We also have teams established and equipped to receive missionaries for church planting and church strengthening purposes in Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay, and Uruguay. Missionaries in these countries are dedicated to the full spectrum of missions: intentional relationship-building, evangelism, discipleship, developing churches and church leaders, and coming alongside to help meet the physical and psycho-social needs of the communities they serve.
There is also a growing emphasis on sending missionaries from South America, and missionaries in this region are partnering with local churches and local mission agencies, including SIM, to make this vision a reality.
