OFFICE NEWS: We have a new leader!

Despite the upheaval and change caused by COVID-19, some things stay the same. God is still calling people to serve Him in new ways and preparing us all to build for the future when His Kingdom will be fully established. This promise and commission includes the nations of the Arab world. This is the passion that drives the newly appointed leader of AWM-Pioneers.

Why we do what we do

‘We want to serve the UK Church as it sends out people with the call to go overseas with extraordinary faith and courage so that others encounter Jesus. We want people to hear the good news of the Kingdom and offer a personal invitation to Arab Muslims so they can have their lives transformed and be part of transforming their societies for Christ.’
