Mission

"To strengthen the Christian church in America by giving support to new missionaries coming from around the world to America."

Notes from the nonprofit

Mission Nation Publishing is set to become a major contributor to the publishing scene in America. Our ministry is to "give a voice to the new Christian missionaries to America." We are two years old, and growing quickly. There are many stories for us to tell in the biographies of the new missionaries, stories of courage, faith, ingenuity and divine guidance. As a start up one challenge has been funding, but recent implmentation of a book display for churches has given us income to produce more books (eight so far with three in progress). No other group has been supportive of new immigrant and refugee missionaries to America. Often these courageous women and men are second class citizens, in society and in the church. The biographies reveal to others the blessing they are to the church and to the people in America.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Many Christian missionaries coming to America around the world do not have a full voice in strengthening the church in America. Many domestic church bodies see immigrant and refugee missionaries as second-class ministers of the gospel. However, church members and leaders grow in their appreciation of the contributions of these new missionaries to America when they are privileged to hear their life stories. Then they understand the new missionaries are gifts God is giving to His church. The challenge is how to give a voice to the new missionaries, so a greater number of Christians and Christian churches appreciate and celebrate the blessing brought to us by God through the new missionaries.
