Project Office


The Project Office was implemented by the  Board in 1992. The purpose of the Project Office, led by Bill Hanson, is to come alongside ABWE missionaries and assist them with the master planning and building of churches, schools, hospitals, seminary buildings, ministry camps and other ministry related facilities. The Project Office has the responsibility of overseeing projects to protect Donors funds, make sure buildings are built with structural integrity, safety and within budget. All of this while focusing on carrying the Gospel to the lost around the globe through the various building projects we’re involved in.  We’ve also discovered this process helps keep the missionary focused on their Ministry and buildings are completed much quicker, thereby, getting the missionary and nationals in their building facility sooner to advance the Gospel.
