Mission: Latin America Mission, founded in 1921 as an interdenominational ministry, has a long history of uniting diverse North American Christian denominations in international ministry partnerships. For example, the Evangelism in Depth movement promoted by the LAM in the 1950's was, for many U.S. churches, their first interdenominational outreach. LAM functions under a unique modus operandi of assigning each missionary to work under the direction of a local grassroots ministry. We work with legally established national ministries and churches that have a clear evangelical identity and a qualified, responsible structure. There are no field directors in the LAM. We relate directly to national church outreach, assigning all resources (human and material) to the direct supervision of national leadership. Our primary goal and highest value is glorifying God by honoring His agenda and not our own.
