MAI equips and nurtures talented men and women with a passion for producing Christian literature for their own people. Since its founding in 1985, MAI has equipped local Christians in 79 countries on five continents, with 7,905 people trained. As a result, they have seen budding writers developed, publishing houses grown, periodicals begun and books and magazines produced that speak to the hearts of readers in their own languages.
MAI advances the Gospel by training Christians to produce literature that nurtures the church and attracts readers to Christ. They believe God uses the written word to transform lives.
