The Persecuted Church
It is truly difficult to convey what the reality for most Christians around the world is like to those who have never been. For most believers around the world, professing faith in Christ is almost always followed by losing family, or even losing life. “Counting the cost” is not just a verse to read, but a real place of decision. NRM builds awareness to the seriousness of our responsibility to share the gospel to the ends of the earth as well as to remember our brothers and sisters who are suffering for their faith. We host missionaries from many countries, bringing them in to speak at seminars and churches, with the goal of keeping the full Body and family of Christ in the forefront of our hearts and minds, reminding us that we are part of a larger family with a single and great purpose.
The result of intensifying Christian persecution within the middle east has led to mass flight for tens of thousands of families to surrounding countries, looking for safe haven and sanctuary. The result is massive and overcrowded refugee camps with little resources, lacking many basic necessities. God has provided avenues for NRM to be involved in supplying for the need of some within those camps, so that they in turn can provide for the needs of others with them, in doing so not only sharing for their physical needs but the Gospel as well.
NRM directly invests in, equips and trains indigenous missionaries to serve in their local communities. Through our ongoing efforts to build relationships in other countries, NRM is actively involved in supporting the efforts of local missionaries in countries where resources are scarce and Christians are regularly persecuted.
