91% of your contribution goes directly to your missionary. Donations are deductible to the full extent permitted by the law. IOM missionaries are accountable to their sending organizations, to IOM, and to the Lord.
An ever-changing world requires consistently fresh thinking. Efforts to reach people in our rapidly and dramatically changing world demands creative approaches from mission-driven individuals and organizations.
IOM is a highly flexible organization uniquely positioned to serve this generation’s missional purpose. We specialize in creatively linking new and proven ministries with unmet needs. We work diligently to avoid stale thinking as we try to find needs which are not being addressed by others and endeavor to find solutions in unique and fruitful ways.

A Heart To Serve
Service is at the core of everything we do: serving senders and missionaries to those most needing a servant. Ultimately serving the Lord of the harvest, IOM works to unite the efforts of sending churches, oversight teams, indigenous partners, missionaries and mission agencies. We work especially hard to preserve the relationship between the local-folks-back-home and our Associate Missionaries. Our service goal is constant: Assist those the Lord has called to get to their field, according to their unique context and needs. Our focus is helping to ensure that the needed resources, tools, co-workers, and encouragement are there for them to do their job and fulfill their calling.

Become an iom missionary
Many independent missionaries, already in the field, have found a home with IOM…
We’re in the midst of the greatest harvest in all of history! God is doing amazing things, and even if you’ve never had any experience on the mission field, you can be part of it. You may not think you’re qualified, but God can use whatever skills you already have in a broad range of activities, such as business development, Bible teaching, childcare, carpentry and other trades, to name a few. And, you won’t be placed somewhere without support. You’ll be working with experienced veterans, God’s hero team, who are carrying out His mission in the world today. Call Michael McCarty at 601-684-0558 to learn how!

Reviews & Endorsements
International Outreach Ministries has been a God-send to our organization. As a Christian International NGO serving overseas, the Hard Places Community needed a base back home in the U.S. to come around us with financial oversight and accountability, emotional support, and spiritual encouragement. IOM has been all of those things to us and more. On a daily basis, IOM staff is friendly, flexible and self-sacrificing as they work with us to keep all of the ministry wheels turning overseas. Once a year IOM leaders visit us on the field, lifting us up and being part of what God is doing in our ministry. The Hard Places Community is so grateful God led us to IOM, and we highly recommend them to any missionary to call “home.”
