Australian Indigenous Ministries

(AIM) 

We currently serve with the Australian Indigenous Ministries (previously known as Aboriginal Inland Mission). AIM is an interdenominational and Evangelical organisation that was founded in 1905. Its main emphasis is in evangelism, discipleship, training and ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ to build a strong Aboriginal community. Read more about AIM on www.aimpa.com

   What is required of us? 
    Since the Australian Indigenous Ministries (AIM) is a faith ministry, we are required to raise our own support to cover travel, medical and
    basic living expenses. We therefore value your prayers.
