It is our belief that the work of the Gospel is most effectively accomplished on an individual level. Our missionaries are committed to the idea of 1 Thessalonians 2:8 which speaks about not only sharing the Gospel, but also sharing our whole lives. We can’t share our lives with someone unless we are present with them, and sharing lives is a long and meaningful process. This is why we believe in supporting native, indigenous missionaries; those who will minister where they live, and live where they minister. NRM supports numerous missionaries around the globe, and stays connected with the work they are doing on the ground.
Sending Short Term Mission Teams
While our primary goal is to establish and sustain indigenous missionaries, we very much value sending short term mission teams overseas. NRM has organized and sent numerous teams to Israel, India, Cambodia, Tanzania and Sudan with the intent to build relationships and support ongoing efforts to the local missionaries. These trips are not only a blessing of encouragement to those we go see, but they are even more so a blessing for those going, as eyes become open to the reality for the greater percentage of Christians in the world, suffering in true poverty and persecution, all the while clinging tightly to their Jesus with a commitment seldom seen in our part of the world.
Partnering with International Ministries
NRM works with local ministries and churches around the world. Many of our short term trips are “ground paving”, building relationships with indigenous ministries and coming along side them to support and provide for their needs. We work with private orphanages in Southern India, evangelistic outreach ministries in Vellore, India and Jerusalem, Israel, as well as churches in Bangelore and Chennai. These and others are relationships we continue to support through financial support and sending teams to work with them.
