Our unique calling is to serve independent, indigenous mission directors by connecting their needs with partners who are willing to pray and provide resources.
Founded in the Spring 2004, Global Network of Independent Missions, Inc. (Global NIM) seeks to serve the needs of worldwide missions whose directors have heard the Good News of Jesus Christ and have responded in obedience to God's call on their lives by doing His work.
One of the keys to rapid and effective ministry in any country is directorship by local leaders (foreign nationals). It is well-known in mission work that an “outsider” may need up to 6 years to establish an effective ministry, whereas a local person may have great impact in as little as 6 months; thus, Global NIM strives to support such efforts.
Defined as organizations which are NOT affiliated with (and subsequently regularly funded by) a Christian denomination, these “independent” missions truly operate by faith, not knowing how or where the Lord will provide cash flow for their operations. Frequently, limited resources and communications impede the directors’ abilities to promote their cause.
First and foremost, Global NIM strives to establish spiritual support for these missions through consistent prayer for their needs. Secondly, through the generous support of those willing to share ideas or resources, Global NIM can work in conjunction with our creative God to fulfill those needs. In some cases, needs can be met through effective networking rather than financial support.
Please read through the "whom we serve" list and prayerfully consider the role that God would have you play in supporting these individuals who have dedicated their lives to God’s service. Thank you!
