TIMO teams have become a great means in equipping gospel workers for cross-cultural mission
Once colloquially known as the ‘Association of Independent Missionaries’, AIM is now known more for its purposeful, focused outreach teams.
Not that long ago, ministry in the trade language was becoming the norm; now there is a renewed passion for the language of the heart within AIM.
Not that long ago, we had a several-hundred-word-long vision statement, only the vaguest details of which were remembered by the rank and file membership; now the phrase ‘Christ-Centred Churches Among All African Peoples’ rolls effortlessly off the tongues of every member, old or new.
As I led a small TIMO team among an unreached group several years ago, I often found myself wishing I had begun my missionary career on a TIMO team. How many mistakes I would have avoided as a new missionary if I had known some of the things we, as a team, were learning together! I determined to learn from those mistakes and encourage others to do the same. The experience transformed my approach to mission and influences the way I lead others today.
