Personnel and Member Care's primary focus is the selection and training process of missionaries including short-term personnel and teams. Personnel and Member Care is the official placement service of Assemblies of God World Missions. They maintain a Web site wideopenmissions.org of short-term missions opportunities around the world. They also offer online application for short-term missionaries and MAPS volunteers. The director also gives oversight to the care of missionaries and their families including the ministry to children of missionaries (MK's).
The International Society of Missionary Kids (ISMK) is the Assemblies of God World Missions ministry to its MK's. It includes approximately 1,400 MK's scattered throughout 212 countries and territories. ISMK believes that God calls the entire family to be missionaries. Therefore, we work to equip, engage and enable the Missionary Kids emotionally, educationally and spiritually for their transition to the field, life and ministry on the field, and reentry into American society.
“As a Spirit-led missions-sending agency, AGWM strongly emphasizes reliance upon God's grace and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We partner with the Holy Spirit as He sovereignly brings men and women to a realization of their purpose in life. When new Assemblies of God missionaries are accepted, they become part of a relationship between the Lord who calls people and the sending agency that provides the means. When God speaks to a missionary candidate's heart, He confirms His leading by granting divine guidance, provision and harvest."
