NATIVE AMERICAN MINISTRY

MTW seeks to walk with indigenous peoples of the Americas, wherever they are found, growing together in the grace of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are committed to ministry that flows through long-term, interdependent relationships. We realize that trust is key and that we have much to learn from each other. By reaching future generations, respecting the tribe, and focusing on the development of leadership, we hope: to present a credible, trusted witness; to encourage one another in the paths of discipleship; to strengthen existing churches; and to start new churches whenever appropriate.
