Ang Mananampalatayang Gumagawa Inc. (formerly known as AMG International and being used interchangeably) is a non-profit, non-stock and non-denominational Christian mission organization whose mother organization, AMG Philippines, Inc. and AMG International are incorporated under the laws of the Republic of the Philippines and the USA respectively.
The ministries of AMG International began in the Philippines in the late 1970's when AMG missionaries Harold and Muriel Lovestrand (1979-1987) began work here. Starting as an evangelistic and church planting endeavor, the ministries expanded to provide care for children who were in need and at risk. The core values of AMG International are:
• To give every person on earth at least one chance to hear and respond to a clear presentation of the gospel;
• To express the compassion of Christ as the Lord gives opportunity and means to do so;
• To serve the pastor and his local church, and to inform, challenge, and encourage God's people in their worldwide responsibility.
The ministries of AMG International in the Philippines continued under the direction and leadership of Rev. Tim Lovestrand (1986-89) and Rev. William V. Layda (1987-2006). In 1989, an application was submitted to the SEC to create an independent non-profit, non-stock ministry, AMG Philippines, Inc. The application was approved in December 1989 and an independent Board of Directors was put in place.
Although it is now a completely independent Christian mission organization, the mission and purpose of AMG Philippines remains in line with that of AMG International. Funding for the ministries of AMG Philippines comes in from AMG International and AMG international as a founding organization retains a place in the Board of Directors of AMG Philippines. Funding is also provide by Woord en Daad of Netherlands and other local sources.
As of January 1, 2009, AMG Philippines is under the leadership consisting of Rev. Hector U. Araña as Executive Director and Ms. Stenillie Grace D. Sinkiat, Deputy Executive Director.
