Native Sons Newsletter Archive

 

Native Sons Newsletters showcase the stories of Native American Christian leaders, students, and individuals. They include historical and current information about the Nations/Tribes that the individuals come from and to which they minister. The newsletters are intended to be short, enjoyable to read, and helpful in understanding the triumphs and challenges that Native Christians face.

 

 

Native Schools of Ministry Courses

 

The Native Schools of Ministry (NSM) is a part of the Assemblies of God. Our intention is to provide local ministry training in Native country that is affordable and meets the credentialing requirements of the Assemblies of God. Unlike the other resources on this page, there is a fee for enrolling in NSM courses and each course requires the purchase of the book that is part of the course.

Basic Training Manual for Those Desiring to Serve in Native Ministry

 

The training manual includes 13 topics of discussion intended to provide an overview of essential areas of consideration for engaging in Native ministry. The concern of the manual is to prepare outsiders to work in cultures that are not their own in a way that promotes the Gospel and creates truly indigenous communities of Christ-followers. The training manual represents the insights and concerns of over 100 Native pastors and leaders, missionaries, and non-Native ministers serving among Native Americans.

 

 

Suggested Training Program for Missionaries to Native Americans

 

This training program represents the insights and concerns of the same people involved in the creation of the training manual. This program was specifically designed for use within the Assemblies of God, but our hope is it might help others to reconsider ineffective and outmoded approaches to Native ministry and in their stead provide an approach to Native ministry that genuinely seeks to establish indigenous communities where Jesus is worshipped as Lord and Savior in a culturally meaningful way.
