The purpose of NMI is to promote missions in our local churches. We can strive to express the compassion of Jesus Christ to all persons. While the primary motive of the church is to glorify God, we are also called to actively participate in His mission. One way we can participate in mission is to look at the needs around us and see if we can help.

Dedication of New Facilities for Roca de Salvacion Under the leadership of Otoniel Dannemann, our Hispanic Coordinator, we now have 8 Hispanic Churches in Northeast Oklahoma and two more in the birthing process.

Exciting Days for Sunday School & Discipleship Ministries Michelle Proctor, District SDMI Chair Summertime is coming to a close and that can sometimes be a bitter sweet. How we longed for the summer all year long… the warmer weather, the family vacations. For some, it was a time to slow down from juggling the rigorous schedules of work, school, sports and other activities. For parents, maybe it was looking forward to a week alone while the kids were off to camp. Summer gives us a chance to take a breath, enjoy the beauty of God’s creation, and maybe, slow down just a little bit. It’s nice to take a break from the busyness of life, but once we start looking ahead to the change of the season and all of craziness coming back in full force can often bring a little anxiety and dread. I understand this feeling completely,......
