Below are Missionaries and Mission Organizations Bethany promotes and supports!

  • Africa Inland Mission (AIM) is a Christian mission sending agency with a heart for Africa’s peoples. We have our roots in a small band of faithful men and women who, in 1895, ventured inland to reach Africans untouched by the gospel. Their vision set the course of AIM for over 120 years, as a community called and sent to live and minister among Africa’s least-reached peoples. This call still remains.

    Our desire is to see the worship of Jesus Christ spread across the continent of Africa – through individual lives fully committed to him, and collectively through Christ-centered church communities. Our Lord has done a mighty work in Africa, where His Church is vast and growing daily. But with over 1000 African people groups who have yet to hear the good news of Jesus Christ, the task is far from finished.

  • Align's Mission:

    Starting a Good News Club program at Brecknock Elementary to share the Gospel with students who attend after school.

    Our ministry vision is to reach Every Child, Every Nation, Every Day.

    Every Child:

    God has given His people a clear commission—to reach every creature with the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our special mission in CEF is to evangelize every child. In the last ministry year our workers worldwide reached over 15.6 million children! CEF is committed to reaching 15 percent more each year. Strategic ministry choices such as Good News Club in public schools and concentrating on high potential growth countries will help us reach this goal.

     Mark 16:15, “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”

    Every Nation:

    CEF is a worldwide ministry serving in every region of the world in an ever expanding way.

    Matthew 28:19, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations.”

    Every Day:

    We are committed to leading children to be in God’s Word every day. As children grow in their relationship with the Lord through meditating on His Word, they develop godly character, which produces much fruit to the glory of God, including spreading the Gospel to their peers. We now have over 800,000 Wonder Devotional Books in Africa. Right now we are working to reach 500,000 children in Asia with the books.

    Psalm 119:2, “Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.”

    Only as we trust in God and call upon Him are we empowered to do His will. Programs come after prayer, never before it.

    We have over 3,400 workers worldwide led by eight regional directors.  There are also tens of thousands of volunteers worldwide. God works through His people, godly leaders, staff and volunteers in order to accomplish our goals. The sun never sets on CEF ministry.  We provide training, equip our workers with ministry tools and support them through fund-raising and ministry development.
