AMG International is a Gospel-first global ministry that meets people’s deepest needs – spiritual and physical – while inspiring hope, restoring lives and transforming communities. For over 75 years, we have leveraged the insights of local leaders and churches, that know their communities best, to identify the right strategies to meet the deepest needs. Our primary methods include child and youth development, media evangelism, pastor training, church planting, medical care and disaster relief. Sixteen thousand children under the age of five die every day from malnutrition and preventable diseases, and those that do survive often can’t escape the cycle of poverty rampant in their communities due to the lack of educational opportunities. To address these deep needs, AMG’s field partners operates 117 schools, orphanages and youth development centers in 10 countries.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

AMG's driving passion will continue to be the dissemination of the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world. Through addressing the physical needs of hurting people, AMG ultimately looks to address the spiritual needs and help bridge a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Through child and youth development centers, education, hospitals and medical clinics, job skills development facilities and churches throughout the world, AMG looks toward developing national leaders to carry the message of the Gospel.

With personnel and/or facilities in more that 35 countries, AMG continues a legacy of more than 75 years of reaching those in need, forgotten or isolated with the message of Christ.

The work of reaching those that have not heard the good news of Jesus Christ seems almost insurmountable. However, AMG holds a proud legacy of working with native believers to reach out to tens of thousands of people that would not have otherwise heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The work is far from done, but the loving partnership of our donors allows the work to continue.
