Ambassadors in Mission (AIM) is the short-term youth missions program of the Assemblies of God. AIM trips can either be stateside or international.
We are leading this trip with AG World Missionaries, Johnny and Andrea Pangelinan. We only have 15 spots total for youth leader/pastors, but each leader will have the opportunity to bring one other leader with them. This could be a spouse, youth leader, or a strong student leader who is considering missions (15 spots total).
Arizona Youth Ministries is partnering with AG world missionaries, Andy & Jen Smith, on a Spring Break AIM trip to the largest city and capital of Honduras, San Pedro (March 18-24, 2018). We will be serving the vision of the Smith's and the National Youth Director of Honduras to reach the emerging youth culture by sharing the gospel through dramatic presentations and testimonies. We are going on a special invitation from the National Youth Director to be a part of a revival in the youth culture. Missionaries, Andy & Jen, were former Arizona Youth Pastors, and they are excited to be hosting a team from Arizona.
AG World Missionaries, Gerritt & Tara Kenyon, are inviting us for a return AIM trip to the largest city and capital of Panama, Panama City. We will be serving the vision of the host missionaries in reaching the emerging youth culture by sharing the gospel in public high schools through ethics and character presentations. 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 have a unique privilege of ministering out of the beauty of Northern Arizona in Navajo Nation, partnering with our Native American churches and pastors. National Native Youth Director, Rev. Jackie Holgate, and Pastor Bobby Stuart will be hosting a team of Arizona students with the purpose of serving the vision of our Native Pastors and their communities. This is an affordable domestic missions experience and a great opportunity for both rookie and veteran AIMers.

We have the unique privilige to come alongside Brian & Raquel in building relationship with the national leadership of Colombia and serving the communities through evangelism and discipleship ministry.
