Agrimissions is a 501(c)(3) organization with its roots in The Mission Society of Norcross, Georgia. It was at their invitation, in the year 2000, that the founders, Larry Williams (current director), Rev. Steve Johnson (California pastor), Dr. Earle Goodman (veterinarian from Turbeville, SC), and Wilson Lee (agricultural extension agent with Auburn University) gathered to determine if evangelism and agriculture could go hand-in-hand for the sole purpose of reaching the world for Christ while meeting human needs for daily bread.
Since the formation we have worked in and have completed projects for over fifteen nations spread across the world. Our mission and our philosophy is stated in our motto: First the bread -Then the Bread of Life! this does not mean we put physical needs first, but it does mean relationships are key to winning others to Christ. An unsaved persons perceived need never focuses on the Bread of Life first. For that reason we strive to gain their trust and respect and then we have open doors for sharing Christ.
Our ministry consists of international and domestic ministries, where we bring our talents to meet the world and their needs for both daily bread and the True Bread of Life-Jesus Christ! We train churches in the USA in areas of community/urban gardening but the heart of our training focuses on teaching churches how to incorporate evangelism into any outreach program in which they are engaged.
Larry Williams was the first director/founding member followed by Doug and Becky Neel of Alexandria, Louisiana. Larry assumed the reign again after Doug & Becky's retirement. We have always enjoyed a rich and productive Board of Directors.

Vision: To reach the world for Christ while meeting human needs for daily bread.
Mission: To spread the Good News of Jesus Christ by helping meet the physical and spiritual needs of our brothers and sisters around the world.
Preamble: Agrimissions exists for the sole purpose of glorifying God (Matthew 5:16) through the use of the rich resources He has entrusted into our hands. These resources include our time, talents, and treasures. We believe God has called us to take our knowledge, skills, and abilities in agriculture to "the uttermost parts of the world." (Acts 1:8)
We hope you will become a partner with us in proclaiming the Gospel and bringing hope to a hungry and dying world. Our ministry is focused on sharing Christ with others, as we develop relationships and help them improve their lives with better food sources and improved techniques.
