ACMI began in 1947 as African Christian Mission and over the years has grown to become the Alliance of Christian Missions - ACMI.

The call is important as we begin each partnership and it is vital throughout our ministry together.

It is our continuous challenge to “Accept Christ’s Call” day by day… Make that minute by minute!
