What We Do


JMI programming is centered around 5 main care and development focuses. Through these focuses, we are able to address systems of injustice and poverty within each of the countries we operate in. Central in all of our programming is our dedication to the Gospel. In all things, we seek to honor Jesus Christ and love those we serve according to His Word.


JMI has two primary areas of focus, the Amazon and Moldova. We are a global organization with a local mindset.
Our programming relies on indigenous, in-country staff and local churches.

The Amazon—Vast in size and need

Our annual Jungle Pastors’ Conference is the centerpiece of all the work we do in the Amazon.

  • The State of Amazonas is the largest land area in Brazil equaling France, Spain, Sweden & Greece combined
  • Most of the territory is covered by jungle, where 21% of the population lives, scattered among 6,100 rural and riverside communities
  • Amazonas has a population of 3.5 million
  • There are only 560 schools in the Amazon region. The illiteracy rate in 2010 was 9.6%
  • Only 1/2 of villages on the Amazon River have access to clean water
  • 6 months of every year, the Amazon floods, displacing upwards of 70,000 families from their homes
