Convinced that no one should live and die without hearing God's good news, we believe that He has called us to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ in communities where he is least known.
sends missionaries from Canada to more than 80+ countries worldwide,
receives missionaries to Canada,
ministers in Canada alongside the church.
We are convinced that God's primary means of relating to and transforming the world is the church. Thus, where there is no church, we are committed to evangelism and starting churches. Where a church exists, we are committed to strengthen the church through teaching the Bible, developing leaders, and equipping the church to fulfill Christ's Commission. Our ideal church-mission relationship is a dynamic interdependent partnership that reaches out together to love the unreached world
yet our primary purpose is to facilitate local churches to send cross-cultural missionaries. We seek to humbly serve and boldly challenge churches in their obedience to God's mandate to be witnesses in all the world. In many countries, the emerging church is catching the vision for cross-cultural missions but needs help to establish sending agencies. Our desire is to assist churches to set up mission boards with the hope that some of their missionaries may be dual members with SIM. We desire to be a church-planting mission and a mission-planting mission!
We appreciate and work closely with specialized missions in Bible translation, radio, development, evangelism, medicine and aviation. Our distinctive is not our methodology, but our church-focused vision. We are seriously involved in Bible translation, hospitals, radio, development and aviation, but all these are a means to plant, strengthen and partner with churches. Our focus is the church, not a strategy.
