“The Great Commission is not given to any particular ethnic churches, but to all the churches on earth. We are integral parts of one body who have different and unique gifts. We must work together in partnership as the founding members of the Asia Missions Association dreamed and endeavored.”

HISTORY

In 1971, Dr. David J. Cho made several trips to various Asian countries, discussing the possibility of calling the All-Asia Missions Consultation. This proposal was warmly received and the Consultation was held In Seoul, Korea on August 1973. As a result of that Consultation, the Asia Missions Association was formed in August 1975. It was consisted by 14 Asian nations, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Brunei, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Asian Missions Association has hosted a Triennial All Asian Missionary Conference in different Asian Countries since its All-Asia Mission Consultation in Seoul on the year 1973. Each conference ending with resolutions and action plans has contributed in uniting the Asian Churches and Mission Agencies for advancement of the Gospel. The year 2013 marked 40th Anniversary of the AMA and 11th AMA Triennial Convention was held in Inchon, Korea where it all started. The Next 12nd Convention will be hosted by Philippines Missions Association in Manila, Philippines, in 2016.
