The purpose of Assemblies of God Mission is to mobilise the local church for mission. In effect we are the mobilisation arm of this great movement of churches. Our focus is to help the local church fulfil their unique God-given role in the great commission.
We provide a framework for leaders, churches, mission organisations and missionaries to serve together in order to see the gospel advanced with greater effect. Our strategies are glocal - both local and global - in focus. Without bias, we are called to make God known to every nation, people group and ethnicity. AOG Mission aims to equip and inspire members of the AoG to engage with God's mission in every area of their lives.

Vision without strategy is merely a pipe dream. We learn from the biblical account in Nehemiah, that having a vision, a burden and a deep passion for the transformation of a city is not enough. We need a strategy, resources and the right people (to mention a few) to complete the mission.
Our Mission Forums are designed to bring together likeminded leaders, missionaries, apostolic leaders and representatives from missions organisations to create the opportunity to share knowledge, experience, resources and contacts. We believe we are stronger together and that partnership is a key to achieving mission. Therefore we want to design projects and strategies, and take new initiatives together.
These forums are critical to our goal of become a missionally focused movement of churches. We cannot continue to just passionately preach about missions, inspire people to go, talk about the issues, pray and receive offerings. We must be strategic and intentional in our response.
Forums are being held on India, Europe, Balkans, Africa, Human Trafficking and reaching ethnic communities. Other nations and causes will be addressed in the future.
Please visit www.aog.org.uk to register. It's free to attend the forums and anyone in local church leadership can attend.
