About the MMF

The Mobile Ministry Forum (MMF) is a network of missional innovators representing more than 170 ministries. We facilitate a mobile ministry movement so that every unreached person will have a chance to encounter, experience and grow in Christ through their personal mobile device by the end of 2020.

The Mobile Ministry Forum began in 2009 as an organic grouping of several individuals who had either begun small scale mobile ministry initiatives or who were interested in potentially launching mobile ministry outreaches. What began as occasional Skype conversations turned into a gathering of 16 individuals in December of 2010…the first ever Mobile Ministry Forum Consultation. The Mobile Ministry Forum network now consists of more than 800 participants.
