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.
