What is AIM? 

We go to the nations every year on short-term mission trips through Ambassadors In Mission (AIM),  the short-term youth missions program of the Assemblies of God. We encourage every student to go on a foreign mission trip before they graduate high school.

AIM trips can either be stateside or international. AIM started in 1966 and now nearly 10,000 students participate on these trips each year. AIM is a coordinated effort between students, leaders, missionaries and host churches. With Assemblies of God missions in over 250 countries, the opportunities are endless

We have a unique privilege of ministering right here in Northern Arizona in the Navajo Nation, partnering with our Native American churches and pastors. I will be leading an AIM trip of students and leaders all across Arizona with National Native Youth Director, Rev. Jackie Holgate in Flagstaff, AZ. We will be serving the vision of our Native Pastors and their communities on the Navajo Nation. This is a great opportunity for both rookie and veteran AIM students to deploy for ministry in an affordable/domestic missions experience.

We are going back for a third consecutive year July 14 - 21, 2019 to serve AG World Missionaries, Gerritt & Tara Kenyon. We have been invited back to Panama City to serve the ministry of El Refuge, reaching the emerging youth culture by sharing the gospel in public high schools through ethics and character presentations as well as hosting for a nation-wide youth conference to several thousand teenagers across Panama. There is a thirst among the youth for fulfillment in their lives that cannot be met by the booming commerce so rapidly changing the face of the economy of this small nation.

We are leading on a return trip January 14 - 21, 2019. with AG World Missionaries, Johnny and Andrea Pangelinan. We will be serving the established church as well as reaching areas that have yet to be reached with the gospel. We only have a few spots left for students and leaders, so please contact team leader, Brandi Martinez, ASAP if you are planning to join us. 

AIM Thailand Details:

We are leading a more advanced AIM trip to Egypt April 8 - 15, 2019. Experienced sudents (ages 16+) and leaders will take part in a team in serving an international church partner in Alexandria, Egypt. Due to the nature and sensitivity of this trip, information can be requested by those seriously considering applying for this trip. Members will gain exposure and context to the Arab World, capturing stories of STL and serving the Christian church. We will also have the opportunity to visit ancient pyramids in Giza and a tour of Cairo.
