In 1985, Dr. Foltz founded AIMS
with the purpose of challenging and mobilizing churches to take the Gospel where it has never been proclaimed. Under Dr. Foltz’s leadership, AIMS has trained over 163,000 pastors and leaders worldwide to engage in cross-cultural ministry and church-planting movements among the world’s least reached people groups. Since 1995, more than 46,000 churches have been planted by the national partners AIMS has trained. As a result, an estimated 33 million people have heard the Gospel, most for the first time, and approximately 2.8 million people have found Christ.
