Our Mission at SAMS
At SAMS, the core of our mission is to serve with integrity and compassion while sharing the word of the Gospel. Just as Jesus came in bodily form on Earth, we strive to be the hands, feet and mouth of the Lord so we can share the good news with everyone. Every day, our missionaries around the world become witnesses to God’s grace at work as they seek to make disciples of all nations through the Anglican tradition. Our goal is to recruit, send and support missionaries so they can continue building up Christ’s kingdom, sharing the hope of the Gospel in word and in deed.
Who We Are
The Society of Anglican Missionaries and Senders began over 40 years ago as a direct response to Christ’s Great Commandment and Great Commission. We are an Anglican missionary organization that serves as a support agency for our short-term and long-term missionaries. Our missionaries do everything from providing housing and food to underprivileged communities to working in healthcare. This is because our missionaries come from every walk of life and have unique gifts that allow them to show the love of God in a variety of ways.
We partner with Anglican and Episcopal churches to grow the Kingdom of God globally. Today, SAMS supports over 100 missionaries in their journeys to share Gospel hope through the Anglican tradition. Our continuous, ongoing efforts to build servant relationships with potential disciples help keep our strategic principles at the forefront — relational, Anglican and global. To grow the success of our work and keep the glory for God, we believe it is vital to remember these strategies and apply them to our missionary work.
Where We Serve
Today, our missionaries share the power of the Gospel in word and deed in over 30 countries on six continents. Some of our recent journeys have taken us to places like:
- Costa Rica
- New Zealand
- South Africa
- South America
- United States of America
While serving, our missionaries communicate with their senders about their work both privately and here on our SAMS Stories blog. By recording and sharing what God is doing in these ministries, we hope to encourage others to get excited about doing the same work, whether on the ground with their own hands or through donation and prayer to support our missionaries.
How You Can Help
There are countless ways you can help us spread the transformational power that comes from the Gospel. The most common ways people serve are through donations, prayers, and answering the call to become a missionary.
Donating to SAMS and other Christian missionary organizations is one way to help spread the Gospel without leaving your home. We rely on donations to keep up our projects overseas, like establishing new churches, training leaders and ministering in schools and medical clinics. When you submit your contribution to SAMS, you are helping equip missionaries with some of the tools they need to continue the ongoing work of bringing new believers to Christ.
In the book of Matthew, Jesus commanded His disciples to make disciples of every nation and to baptize them in His name. Our Anglican missionaries take this message to heart and go wherever God calls them. Our missionaries at SAMS are part of a deep community where they function in the roles they’re called to do, whether through evangelism, education or any other gifts God has given them.
SAMS provides our missionaries with short-term and long-term opportunities. Missions can last anywhere from a few weeks, or a year, to a full career, depending on how you feel called to serve. However long you want to help, SAMS will find a place for you to help us grow the Kingdom of God.
One thing that everyone can do regardless of age, income or ability is pray. At SAMS, we believe in the all-consuming power of prayer to change lives as we witness God at work. We ask for your continuous prayers to support our mission as we work through challenges every day. You are warmly invited to join our weekly SAMS Family Prayer sessions, to connect over Zoom for fellowship and prayer support.
