Mission to Amish People

Mission to Amish People

Joe Keim, Staff
Executive Director & Founder

In 1999, while working as a tool and die maker at one of Ohio's local manufacturing plants, the Lord began to work in Joe's heart about taking the gospel back to his people and family. For over a year, Joe went through some tremendous struggles before giving up and making himself available to go wherever the Lord wanted him to go.

By April of 2001, the Keim family had raised just enough financial support through local churches and individuals that they decided to take the scary step, let go of Joe's secular job, and go into full time ministry.

In 2001, Mission to Amish People [MAP] started out in a small Sunday school room, located inside Bethel Baptist Church. As time went on, the ministry grew and before long, a second and third person were brought on staff. Since each Sunday school room was small in size, they had no choice but to keep branching out until the ministry had used up three classrooms. At that point, the church asked MAP build their own office space. Today the ministry is running their offices out of a 3,500 sq. ft. building, located about 500 feet away from the main church building. It is not uncommon to see between 20 and 30 volunteers working on mailing day.
