trains for action

Are you being called by God to be a missionary but are still uncertain how to begin?

CBN Asia’s missionary training arm, the Asian Center for Missions (ACM) can help you make that important first step. ACM offers an intensive two and a half year Missionary Training Program (MTP) that provides cutting-edge and relevant training to a new breed of OFWs—Overseas Filipino Witnesses who are effective in cross-cultural ministry.

ACM’s MTP is a practical, holistic, and intensive program that equips full-time missionaries and tentmakers to be resilient, skilled, and well-rounded workers. It is designed to mold a disciplined, consistent and passionate bayani of the Good News.

Since 1995, ACM has helped deploy more than 600 MTP graduates to over 40 nations. They are now transforming communities, planting churches and ministries, and discipling thousands among the least reached people groups of Asia and the 10/40 Window.

It is comprised of:

  • Four months of classroom instruction
  • Two weeks of local exposure trip
  • Two years of language and culture learning in the targeted least reached people group


Some of the topics covered during the training include world missions, cross-cultural anthropology, leadership development, effective communication, missionary life, team building and more.

  • A clear divine call from God to be a missionary
  • Integrity of character
  • At least two years of good and effective ministry
  • Full support of local church
  • Established support from a missional community or individuals
  • Sound theological foundation
  • Effective communication skills
  • Emotional stability
  • Good physical health
  • Ideally from 25 to 60 years old
  • For married applicants, written consent of spouse

      My wife and I are mobilizing Africans for missions to Asia for the unreached peoples of Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, China, Mongolia, Japan and Vietnam. Is this training only available for Filipinos or it can be availed to starting African missionaries as well and others? I am currently in Manila working with a missions focused church in Tay Tay, but feeling that ACM offers solid experience that we can tap into as well.

    • Ariel L. Silvero

      I have been watching CBN asia for how many years and God used CBN asia to change my life. I am 22 years old and currently working as an online ESL teacher for koreans, chinese and japanese. God wants me to share the Gospel in different place though I already overcame it before when I was doing campus ministry but now that I am working; it seems that i am like a prison to my job and responsibility to my family. I really want to serve the Lord wholeheartedly my heart is crying for the young generation. I hope I will have an opportunity to become part of your mission and I pray that God will give me a right and pure heart for my calling. Thank you!

      • ACM Webmaster

        Hi, Ariel. Thank you for sharing your heart for God’s mission with us. If you want to serve the Lord as a missionary and would want to undergo training, ACM offers a Missionary Training Program. For this year, we have two more upcoming training as of this reply: one in Tagum and one in NCR (specific venue will be announced). Please follow us on Facebook or Instagram to know the latest updates about this training. God bless you!
