Missions group relocating to PTC

An evangelical Christian mission agency has announced it will relocate its U.S. headquarters to Peachtree City in August of next year.

Africa Inland Mission will be moving from its current headquarters in Pearl River, NY, but the move is contingent on the sale of that building, the company said in a news release.

Africa Inland Mission is an evangelical Christian mission agency serving in over 20 African nations and dedicated to seeing Christ-centered churches established and thriving among all African peoples.

AIM said Peachtree City was the best fit based on the criteria from AIM’s U.S. Council.

“Factors contributing to the decision were access to the Atlanta International Airport, housing prices within the range set by AIM’s U.S. Council, and the identification of an office facility well-suited to the mission’s needs,” AIM said in the press release.

AIM has not yet indicated how many will be employed at its operation here.

AIM is asking its supporters to pray for those affected by the transition and also on the Pearl River school bond which is necessary for the school system there to purchase AIM’s current headquarters.

“We look forward to more effectively contributing to the establishment of churches among all the unreached peoples of Africa from Peachtree City,” said Dr. Ted Barnett, AIM’s U.S. Director.
