NAIM is a multi-cultural team that exists to glorify God through building the Church by making disciples among North American Indigenous peoples, to reach the world for Christ.
Our hearts go out to the grieving families and First Nation communities impacted by the discovery of unmarked burial sites.
These are horrendous and traumatic life events that require understanding and shared ownership of how to move forward. We respect First Nation communities as they lead in the process of honouring the lost loved ones. Tragically, discoveries like this will be in the news as more First Nation communities conduct investigations into missing children at Residential Schools.
We are a community of believers serving Jesus Christ in a variety of capacities in
British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan in Western Canada, and in Washington State, Montana and New Mexico in the USA.
An increasing number of NAIM staff are First Nations Native believers.
