We connect over 155 mission agencies, churches and bible colleges across Australia as our Members and Associates, as well as like-minded organisations and individuals we consider MI Friends.
Joining Missions Interlink will provide your organisations with a number of privileges and many other benefits through collaboration and being part of a wider community of God's people with a passion and involvement in global mission. In addition, by working together, each organisation's capacity is increased as they support churches' engagement in global mission.
