A Brief History of AIMM
Congo Inland Mission, later to become Africa Inter-Mennonite Mission (AIMM), was founded in 1912 in the USA, and sent its first mission workers to Congo that year. Both these and later mission workers soon discovered that by far the most effective means of furthering the Good News of Jesus was to invite Congolese believers to play major roles in the mission task. The Congolese church grew best as Congolese believers shared Christ with their neighbors, and Western missionaries played supporting roles such as training local leaders and building churches and other facilities. Decades of kingdom work bore fruit.
