Who We Are

Africa-Based Support (ABS), with its four convenient locations in Nairobi, Kenya, is a ministry of Africa Inland Mission, an evangelical Christian mission agency dedicated to seeing Christ-centered churches established among all African peoples.

Our nine different departments, made up of both missionary and national staff, are committed to empowering AIM Members, as wells as those from other like-minded organizations, to better disciple the peoples of Africa. We demonstrate this Christ-like caring support by providing effective provision of quality services.

The ABS teams understand that missionary needs can be vastly different and unique, and we are always working to better assist missionaries while they are on the field.
