Nehemiah's task was a short-term project that had eternal results!
Modern mission history is a story of heroes; men and women who gave up their inheritance, left family and friends to obey the Lord’s command, and in the face of great odds, conquered lands and peoples for the sake of the Kingdom. A quick survey of modern mission history reveals that many of these heroes of the faith were the young people of their day called upon to save a world that was lost. “When students decide to act, things happen. That's the history of missions."
The missionary movement has had tremendous vitality often sparked by students with a world-wide vision. In the same way, Nehemiah Teams are leading the next generation to reach every nation... standing in the gap among the unreached and the hard-to-reach. Nehemiah Teams offer short-term mission projects that have eternal results.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt, in his inaugural speech in 1936 said,
“There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation has a rendezvous with destiny.”
At NT, we believe this generation has a rendezvous with destiny. Join Nehemiah Teams this summer!

summer 2020 teams cancelled
Several months ago when we began requesting students to serve on summer teams and as students began the application process to serve on a Nehemiah Team this summer, who could have imagined that we’d be posting this announcement today. As you have watched the story unfold on the news around the world and now in the communities around you in the US, the current health situation is one that no one could have predicted. Even through the past few weeks of uncertainty as the spread of COVID-19 began to wrap around the world, we were still continuing to pray that teams could be sent out this summer… maybe not everywhere, but maybe at least some countries would be viable options. However, with the current situation, we’re seeing that this won’t be possible for summer 2020. The decision was made over the past couple days by IMB leadership that all volunteer trips through the end of June would be cancelled. (Read article here)
