Aboriginal Ministry South Australia (AbMinSA) supports work by and with Aboriginal people across the state. Its statement, as it works hand in hand, is ‘to promote and expand ministry among Aboriginal people that they may know of and grow in the love of Jesus’.
From its earliest history to the present, God has blessed AbMinSA by providing faithful and committed workers. The ministry has field workers on the Eyre Peninsula and the Far West Coast, as well as in the Greater Adelaide Metropolitan area.
The Lutheran congregation at Ferryden Park ministers to many Aboriginal people living in suburban Adelaide, while over in the west, the ministry trains Indigenous pastors, works with schools and youth, supports worship and study activities and much more.

A wave of missionary activity commenced in 1867 to areas in Central Australia, which resulted in the establishment of a number of mission stations. These regions in Central Australia are now managed by Finke River Mission.
Today, there are about 6000 Aboriginal Lutherans in and around Alice Springs. Administration of this ministry is situated in Alice Springs and it is under the control of the Finke River Mission Board.
