Our Mission

AARM exists to:

  • Raise, expose, and connect up-and-coming leaders to the vision and values of Every Nation.
  • Provide (a financial footing/investment) targeted funding to help minority and underserved leaders grow, learn, and lead with like-minded leaders.
  • Establish camaraderie and identify /accelerate career growth opportunities.

Our Vision

AARM, as a part of Every Nation’s Leadership development track, is a resource gathered to support, identify, and equip African American leaders possessing a hunger to impact the nations for the Glory of Jesus. AARM is committed to investing in the future of tomorrow’s leaders and professionals by directly addressing the relational, practical, and financial gaps often experienced by up-and-coming leaders.

Who We Are

African American Resource Ministries (AARM) is about resources and ministry to the African American community. Funding and fundraising, equipping and training for ministry, recruiting and encouraging people as ministers – all define the mission of AARM.

The challenge for many qualified African American men and women with a burden for ministry is the limited pool of financial resources from which to draw. The process of raising partnership through networks of relationships and personal contacts can be far more limiting for black students than for their white or Asian counterparts. AARM was founded to connect qualified young ministers with those who have the resources to support their mission.

African American Resource Ministries has been created in the Spirit of Christ to serve the upbuilding of African American people. In effect, it is an organization aimed at serving those who are servants by providing a measure of resources needed for the task. Ultimately, it is the aim of AARM that generations will benefit from the investment and equipping that is done today.

How to Give

We would love your help with achieving these goals. We certainly cannot do it alone. If you are passionate about the next generation of African American leaders in ministry, please consider giving.
