AMT considers strong links between the worker and sending church as being essential.
Therefore, AMT recognises and accepts a candidate only when the relationship between sending church and prospective worker demonstrates a sound basis for responsibility and accountability. Recognising that ultimate authority rests with the local church, it is expected that direction to the candidate or serving worker will follow consultation with AMT and with ﬁeld leadership.
By faith, AMT and the churches look to the Lord to provide for the needs of the workers in their joint care.
AMT receives gifts from churches and individuals and distributes these funds in support of workers. Supporters are kept informed of workers' prayer needs via the weekly Prayer Matters, as well as the Frontlines section of Serving Together magazine. AMT assists in induction and orientation training, pastoral care and re-entry/re-settlement.
