Native Americans Ministry
The needs of native americans across this nation remain great. Often, the highest levels of need are met with the lowest quality of care. These conditions remain as a result of unresolved issues between Native American Nations and the United States, broken promises and systems that continue to foster dependency and oppression.
Existing within these difficult circumstances is the vitality of a diverse people group made up of more than 500 distinct Native American tribes. Our cultures are rich with values that can serve as pathways to a better understanding of relationships among people. A common thread is the importance of spiritual health for all. Only a small percentage have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, meaning that the need and opportunity is great for ministry in Christ.
Our association has adopted this group as a mission and ministry outreach. We have delivered non-perishable food items on several occasions. Some other needs are as follows:
1. Fry Bread Tray - trays for Choctaw in Mississippi.
a. Different kinds of handles can be put on tray.
b. Great ministry tool for Native Americans.
