Asbury In Mission

There is good reason for the missions committee at Asbury to be known as “Asbury in Mission” or “AIM”. Mission means more than just dropping a check in the mail to Asbury. We strive to be “in mission” by partnering with our missionaries through regular communication to learn of their needs, to pray for them, to work on one-time mission projects, to go on one or two week mission trips, celebrate mission, and provide financial support. Are you interested in becoming personally involved in His mission at Asbury?
