About Us

AIM is committed to spreading the message of Christ’s love and salvation to those who have not yet encountered it. There are several impactful ways individuals can support AIM’s mission and contribute to reaching out to the lost souls for Christ. One of the most direct ways is through acts of ministry. By volunteering in local communities or on mission trips, individuals can engage in evangelism, share the Gospel, and provide practical assistance to those in need. These acts of service not only help meet physical needs but also create opportunities for spiritual conversations and transformations.

Supporting AIM’s mission can involve monetary support to provide resources for the counseling services whether one or one or group basis. Mentorship programs can be established to offer guidance and support to individuals who are seeking spiritual growth and direction. By investing in their personal journeys, you can help shape their understanding of Christianity and strengthen their faith.

In addition to actively participating and donating, prayer is a vital way to support AIM’s mission in reaching out to the lost and bringing souls to Christ. As believers unite in prayer, they create a spiritual foundation that underpins all the practical efforts. Dedicate time to pray for AIM’s leaders, board members, and all those involved in the organization’s operations. Pray for wisdom, guidance, and strength as they navigate the challenges of spreading the Gospel. Lift up the people who are being ministered to, asking for their hearts to be open to the message of salvation and for their lives to be transformed by Christ’s love. By interceding on behalf of AIM and its mission, you play a crucial role in ensuring that the spiritual impact is profound and lasting.

Lastly, if you’re looking to financially support AIM’s mission to reach out to the lost and win souls for Christ, you can make a donation here. Your generous contributions will directly fuel AIM’s efforts to carry out acts of ministry, provide counseling and mentorship, and offer comprehensive training programs. Your donation will help bring the hope and message of salvation to those who are still searching for meaning and purpose in their lives. Visit AIM’s support page to make your contribution and be a part of this impactful mission.

For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.

Boyd Long

Addiction Counselor (CCIT), Missionary, Pastor

I’ve been on a journey of recovery since 2007. For over 20 years, I worked in the engineering field, but in March of 2020, something incredible happened. The Lord spoke to my heart, urging me to leave my professional career behind and dedicate my time to helping men in recovery. I know, it may have sounded crazy to everyone around me, but sometimes God’s plans are just that way. To others, it may have seemed foolish or unconventional, but deep down, I knew I had heard the voice of God calling me to follow Him.

This isn’t a job to me, it’s a calling and one I hold near and dear. I always want to remember that it is an honor that people invite me into the sacred places of their life and that it takes the grace of God to steward that and walk with these men until they can not only continue to walk it out but to also lead others out the same way. We can’t keep it unless we give it away.

Hey, I’m Jenny Long! It’s so great to connect with you. I’m proud to say that I was born and raised in the lovely city of Evans, Georgia. I committed my heart to Jesus at a very young age, but as I reached my late teenage years, I found myself drifting away from Him. It was a challenging time for me as I battled with chemical dependency and struggled with mental illness. Sadly, I felt disconnected from God, even though deep down, I knew He loved me. I wasn’t living in that beautiful truth found in the Bible.

But here’s the incredible part of my story: after a grueling seven-year struggle with chemical dependency, I made a life-changing decision. I entered a treatment center and fully committed myself to a 12-step rehab program. It was there that I discovered the path to recovery. By the grace of God, on August 24, 2023, I celebrated 19 years of sobriety. It’s a milestone I hold close to my heart.

Addiction Counselor, Missionary

When it comes to ministry, I believe as Christians we all share the same calling, and that’s to glorify God. Ministry is not just a job, or something we do, but rather who we have become because of Him. The ministry that flows through me is Christ empowering others through my past present, and future brokenness enabling me to relate to them and be a living example of how Christ has empowered me through it all.

Being a part of Arise International Ministries (AIM) has allowed me to connect with countless men who face personal and spiritual struggles, much like I did in the past. It’s amazing how my own life experiences can serve as a living testament to them. I get to share how God has given me the strength to overcome my own challenges, and that’s something I cherish.
