Mission Agencies and Their Addresses

Mission agencies in bold type abbreviations in the text are listed below, together with some contact addresses and statistical information.

We regret that space only allows a representative selection of Protestant ministries mainly from around the English-speaking world. We have selected 116 agencies and over 300 national offices on the basis of size, type of ministry and fields of service, from over 2,500 agencies and 4,200 national offices in our database. The agencies listed below have more than 74,382 missionaries in active service, which is over half of all known Protestant missionaries. See Appendix 3 for a national and regional itemization of missionaries.

We have grouped together similar missions from different nations, even if there is no direct organizational link: for instance, AoG, Brethren, EF, GRn.

Explanation of columns.

1. The addresses are as up to date as we can ascertain, but not all addresses of the agency are given because of space. The address is preceded by an abbreviated country name.

2. After the full name of the agency the World total of missionaries is given, followed by the number of countries of ministry (both sending and receiving).

3. The second column lists the agency's largest sending countries and missionary numbers sent.

4. The third column lists the largest fields of service with number of serving missionaries.

[Electronic Edition Note: Headings in this table are query links which will find all references in Operation World to the agency abbreviation and, in some cases, find other forms of the agency name. In cases where the agency abbreviation is also an english word which occurs in the text, these will be found also. In cases where names are included in the query, it has not been verified that all variant forms of the name have been included.]
