Adventures in Missions is a chance to make a difference in the world. As part of the Sunset International Bible Institute in Lubbock, TX, AIM is an apprentice missions program for college-age young people. Adventures in Missions is a focused effort by and for Christian young men and women to work together to strengthen the church and bring the lost to Christ.
AIM begins with the Bible, the one book that explains to us how to be different. We not only study God's word but we also learn how to teach its good news to others. In the end, AIM students are apprentice missionaries learning, growing and serving on mission fields around the world.
AIM is a minimum two year commitment to study and grow and then to go teach and serve. Those who have taken the challenge of being AIM students have seen God transform their lives for him. Often times AIM students return from the mission field with a renewed sense of purpose and understanding of how they fit within the story of God's salvation for humanity. Thus, an AIM experience can be "life changing."
We are predominantly focused on reaching the lost for Christ and studying alongside new converts to nurture them in the word. Thus, the emphasis we have for ourselves in accomplishing the Northwest Mission is a blend of evangelism and ongoing discipleship.
Nathaniel’s focus is be to establish rapport where there are people and begin building upon a one-on-one method of evangelism and become a part of their lives.
Roberta’s focus is to compliment Nathaniel through service and hospitality. In addition to this, she connects with the Deaf community and works jointly with another teammate in evangelizing and interpreting for the Deaf. Her goal is to become a volunteer interpreter and build rapport with the Deaf, resulting in Bible studies.
