To raise awareness and give a clear call to all of the Nations of God's people to come and be a part of the most urgent mission field of North America and possibly the world, the First Nations people!
DID YOU KNOW…

"Our families need their fathers, we need Hope.
Our men are either High, Dead, or in Prison!"
- Native Woman on Reservation
There are 4.2 million native people living in the United States
562 federally recognized Indian tribes
Less than 3-5% of Indian people are churched
NATIVE AMERICA is arguably North America's most urgent mission field.
How can we bring the HOPE of Jesus to Native America?
Here's One Way:
We have been busy planning next years "Many Nation, One Savior - Conference & Celebration". It is scheduled during Native Ministry Awareness Week, next April in the Chicago area. We are looking forward to having a lot of great support and new members of the team. We again will have several churches and universities join us in presenting next year’s event and will reach out to other people and organizations as well. We see this as a movement of God's Holy Spirit and we are very excited to see what the next step looks like!
Once again we will have the Native Ministry leaders come and share their hearts with several churches across Chicago and surrounding suburbs at their Sunday morning services.
The main event will be the conference on Saturday, April 21 2012 at The Moody Church in Chicago where we will have Dr. Erwin Lutzer and Huron Claus as our featured speakers. We will also have breakout sessions with other Native ministry leaders from around the country. We will seek God for His vision and plans for Native Ministry across America! What a great day of unity and worship and call to missions as we seek God and Build Bridges in Jesus name!
We are also working on scheduling the leaders to speak at several local universities to share and call students to pray and ask God if Native Missions is a possible calling for their lives! Also inviting them to join us at the end of the week on Saturday for the “Many Nations, One Savior - Conference & Celebration” a day of vision, worship and praise!
Please, be praying for this event and the ministries and churches involved. Please, pray that God would be glorified and His Kingdom advanced through this event and that many people would attend and hear the call to reach the lost and hurting Native Nations with the hope and love of Jesus Christ!
We look forward to seeing you there and working together side by side as a wonderful family of God for His Kingdom! Keep an eye on this web site for more information.
