Commit to Faithful Men

June 2018

For too long, a fog of misunderstanding, false doctrine and belief in any other god than the one true God had hung over the hearts of the Menya people. But over these past weeks, as the missionaries taught foundational, chronological Bible lessons, they saw the haze blocking the true light of the gospel beginning to dissipate.

As a church grows and matures to become a thriving church, the development of leadership becomes an integral part of that growth. This issue looks at how faithful men and women are tapped for leadership in a people group in the Philippines. Read how the disciples become the disciplers, and how they push at the edge of their church, reaching out to neighbouring people groups.

Disciples Become Disciplers

March 2018

Embers Fanned into Flame

November 2017

Underneath the palm frond canopy of the church roof sat elders and deacons representing 24 churches and three teams of missionaries. The 50 men filled the church, its half-height walls permitting the early morning light to illuminate their faces. Each face told a story.


Engaging on the Edge of the Church

September 2017

“But that’s not how we’ve done it before!” Those words have echoed down the halls of academia, through church vestibules and around mission conference tables. How often we find comfort, it seems, in the well-worn path of tradition!

Would you give up if the spiritual seed you planted didn’t yield fruit for a long time?


passing the flame

Tremendous Example

November 2016

The Moi presented huge challenges. But God used the humility and perseverance of the missionary team, and last year, elders were appointed.


relationships take time

July 2016

Bringing the gospel to the Nukak people has had more than its share of uphills and downhills.


"now the inapang and tangguat believers are one family"

March 2016

God works through lives that are yielded to Him. Missionaries were willing to take the “back seat” and partner with the Inapang believers. The Inapang believers were willing to step outside their comfort zone and take the gospel beyond their borders. The result was the Tangguat church.


where you come from doesn't limit god

June 2015

What do you do when God nudges you to step out in faith? The story of Amelia’s journey to say, “Yes, Lord” will touch your heart. Think more about how you respond to God in our “Consider This” article. And the Editor’s letter in this issue tells you why we’re excited about Amelia’s story.


meet the needs you see in faith

In the face of massive needs, what can you do? Where do you start? One man did what he could – and trusted God for the rest.

where does the journey start?

March 2014

The completion of an important milestone for the Siawi people begs the question that hundreds of people groups are asking: Where are the men and women who will bring God’s Word to us? We know a great place to start.


The vision no one could kill

August 2013

Dreams often die when the original dreamer dies. The fire, zeal and passion that ignited their vision, and also fueled others to participate, can die right along with them. Not so with the original vision of NTM. Seventy-one years later, the dream is still alive. But so is the enemy.


no grit, no glory

May 2013

Sometimes tribal peoples’ hearts seem as dry and dusty as the landscape. Ministry can become a discouraging, daily grind. But as Leah Humphreys discovered, giving up would mean missing out.


the village that god remembered

February 2013

For many years, the Dinangat people watched and heard about missionaries coming to other tribes. They saw the changes. They knew God’s Word had something to do with it. But no one ever came to the Dinangat village. Had they been forgotten? Would they ever know the truth? How could they get out of this darkness? Then one day, the answers came.
