The Association of Professors of Mission was formed in 1952 and was the founding organization for the American Society of Missiology in 1972. Among the many resources you will find on their Web site are a library of mission course syllabi, a listing of mission programs in North America, and research resources.
The APM and ASM maintain their historical ties as they meet conjointly every year in the Chicago area.
