IN THE REALM OF YOUTH MINISTRY DEVELOPMENT THERE IS A DISPARITY OF RESOURCES
We recognize that over 96% of the world’s young people live outside the U.S. whereas around 95% of the world’s youth ministry resources are spent in North America. With such a vacuum of leadership worldwide among younger leaders, we fill a much needed and under-supported niche in world missions.
Our Vision: To develop indigenous leaders who, growing as disciples of Jesus, will establish mission communities to make disciples of young people in their area.
Our Mission: To identify, encourage, and equip indigenous leaders who, growing as a disciple of Jesus, will establish mission communities to make disciples of young people in their area.
WE TRAIN LEADERS HOW TO BUILD RELATIONSHIPS WITH YOUNG PEOPLE TO SHARE THE GOSPEL
THE NEXT GENERATION IS WAITING
LEADERS FROM EVERY NON-WESTERN REGION OF CHURCHES SAY THEIR GREATEST NEED IS LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
Nexus International is a leader in global youth ministry development as a result of long term investment in 235 catalytic leaders in 55 countries. We estimate that each of these catalytic indigenous leaders on average is influencing 10+ other key leaders, so we estimate the direct affect of our leadership development efforts are having a direct impact on 2,350+ catalytic youth leaders in 25% of the nations of the world!
TAKING LEADERS OUT OF THEIR CONTEXT
TO TRAIN THEM DOESN’T WORK, WE MUST GO TO THEM
The brain drain! 8 out of 10 Leaders who come to the U.S. for training never go home.
THE GREATEST NEED OF YOUNG PEOPLE EVERYWHERE IS THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
