By faith we see East African mission-minded churches fully engaged in global outreach, sending their missionaries to join mission communities around the world. Our purpose is to serve East African churches as they participate in global mission.
The East African Office helps African churches mobilize, equip, train and send East African missionaries around the world to serve with SIM and its partner mission agencies in gospel ministry. Our global workers serve in:
- evangelism and disciple making
- church planting
- radio ministry
- leadership training and theological education
- youth ministry
- culture and language learning
