As members of Christ’s church, we have been mandated to make disciples of all nations. (Mathew 28:18-20) Our heart is for the nations so we have chosen to partner with New Tribes Mission whose goal is planting churches among the unreached. Of the world’s 6,500 people groups, 2,500 are still unreached. New Tribes Mission helps local churches train, coordinate and send missionaries to these tribes.
Our ministry within NTM will be in supporting these tribal church planters through our training as educators. Families living in remote locations still have the responsibility to educate their children. Sadly, one of the top reasons missionaries leave the field is due to a lack of educational options for their children. Through working at the missionary school Faith International Academy in the Philippines, we help keep tribal works going.
Commonly Asked Questions:
What is a support missionary? For every one tribal church planter in NTM, it takes roughly 13 support missionaries working behind the scenes doing various tasks. These support roles include, but are not limited to; accountants, pilots, supply buyers, doctors, mechanics, government representatives and teachers. Each person functions in their area of giftedness so that the tribal church planters can focus on all the necessary steps in planting a church that will grow to maturity.
Why do tribal missionaries need support missionaries? The video below shows a tribal church plant from beginning to end. Can you imagine doing all of this on your own?
Why work with Missionary Kids? “MKs,” as they are often referred to face many unique challenges that most children never face growing up in one country. This short video explains some of the reasons we chose to work with third-culture-kids.
