MISSION PURPOSE/VISION STATEMENT:
Our vision is to support and place people in fields of service to minister God's love so that people of all nations may be saved. New Mission Systems International is solidly evangelical in belief and unashamedly evangelistic in action, knowing that we are commanded to disciple the nations.
After a great many meetings and prayers with the leadership of NMSI, we have decided that my plans for moving back to Ukraine needed to be set aside for a season of time. For the next 18-24 months, I will work full time at the Center for Global Outreach in the Publications office, composing newsletters, brochures, business cards, prayer cards, ministry displays, and note cards to support the ministries of our 174 missionaries in 24 countries. I am developing NMSI’s new website and am involved in the activities of the NMSI community, including welcoming and ministering to missionaries as they come off the field. I will be leading one of the reading groups for new missionaries attending the COAT (Community, Orientation, Assessment, & Training) 8 week intensive missions training course. In addition, I am what we call a COAT link, someone who comes alongside a new trainee, meeting once a week, to find out how they are doing and what they are learning.
A big victory is affiliating with New Mission Systems International (NMSI), after seeking a mission organization to work under for leadership, guidance, accountability, and a strong support structure. I praise God for this time in the States as a time of renewal and strengthening in knowledge of missions, strategies, cross-cultural issues and scripture.
