At NMSI we believe that God has given each of us gifting and passion for ministry. It is our vision and desire to see people fulfill their God-given purpose in ministry and life. We are committed to taking the gospel message of Jesus Christ to the nations. We invite you to join with us. The question we love to ask everyone is:
What is God calling you to do?
Career missions with NMSI is looking at long-term commitment to global missions, whether you serve overseas or stateside. Successful candidates for long-term missionary service demonstrate a call and preparation for the ministry that God is calling them to do, and align with NMSI's vision and mission. Many people use an apprenticeship as a bridge to long-term missionary service. During the application process, NMSI seeks to clarify if we are the right agency to give you support for ministry success.
