  • Relate studies in Missiology to the other scholarly disciplines.
  • Promote fellowship and cooperation among individuals and institutions engaged in activities and studies related to Missiology.
  • Facilitate mutual assistance and exchange of information among those thus engaged.
  • Encourage research and publication in the study of Christian missions.
