“The inspiring story in the stats is that the Holy Spirit is raising up a worldwide network of missionaries and sending churches committed to Christ to reach more people with the gospel than ever before."
Bob Friesen, Research Director
The purpose of the Assemblies of God World Missions Archives, is to preserve the history of the world missions activities of The General Council of the Assemblies of God, established in 1914. This includes the personnel, development, growth, and miracles taking place overseas as documented throughout time. It is our goal to safeguard these historical materials and legal documents from around the world in one secure location.
