AFM Ministry / About-Face Missions ministry is going through some transitions as you all may have noticed over the past 6 months and especially over the last few weeks. We have dabbled and now settled on new logo for the ministry and we are currently revamping our website (much thanks for the help of Devin and Rachel Kinsella who are volunteering their labor to help us in this project)
With that said you will notice the the AFM.ngo ( or aboutfacemissions.com ) website is evolving to be primarily about our Mercy Ministries- AFM Africa ministry work under Jeff Bys and Stephanie Bys. We are in process of phasing out over time our legacy ministry model of indigenous minister support as we see the Lord has been leading us to focus and grow our cross-cultural mission model with the Bys's. This is due to many issues and closed doors we have faced over the past few years in growing the prior indigenous support model of ministry. While we continue to support various legacy ministries you will see less of that as a focus and on our website. Currently to access what we are calling our legacy About-Face Missions ministries when you visit AFM.ngo or Aboutfacemissions.com you will have a two button selection. One for Mercy Ministries and another for About-Face Missions legacy. The upper menu on the website will be primarily for our Mercy Ministries site, but you can still find information on our legacy ministries by selecting the Legacy button on our Home page. Our goal is over the next few years to completely phase out our Legacy About-Face Missions support model and be only cross-cultural missions with our Mercy Ministries- AFM Africa. Hopefully this will help you better understand the Website and our transition we are going through. Above on our cover page here you will see our new AFM Ministry Logo and you will also see our subministry logo used often with Mercy Ministries-AFM Africa (which is the the work we are doing under the Bys family) Here below is the new logo for this part of our work that will be used by Jeff and Stephanie moving forward.
Also on our site or on images you might see our smaller AFM logo, but we are phasing our all use of our prior About-Face Missions naming and logos. Although that was our very first name, even before Incorporating as AFM Ministry, and in many ways It is a bit sad for me to see it go with so many years of passionate ministry that it represents, times are changing for us and God is leading us in this new path for his Glory and calling to make disciples in this new and even more effective way. Soli Deo Gloria!
