From our Executive Director: Same Vision, Changing World

Dear Readers,
NTM Canada is preparing to change our name. Why? Because the world is changing and we’re positioning to reach a changing world.
Our founders had a vision for reaching the world: “By unflinching determination we hazard our lives and gamble all for Christ until we have reached the last tribe regardless of where that tribe might be.” (Brown Gold magazine, Issue 1, May 1943)
That’s a far-reaching vision. A vision that represents God’s heart for the world. A vision that’s worth you and me getting passionate about and working together to make a reality.
That vision hasn’t changed, but the world has. We face new challenges, and we are learning to face them together — relying upon God to unite His people to overcome them for His glory.
Our new name anchors us to our foundations and points us to our vision.
It speaks to the “nations” that Christ referred to when He commanded His followers to “make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19) and “…that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all the nations…” (Luke 24:47).
Our vision is the same today as it was 75 years ago. As we move forward, we’ll draw from those lessons God has taught us in our 75 years of ministry to pursue new opportunities opening to us. Opportunities to reach a
changing world.
Our plan was to begin using the new name on May 1st, the same day as NTM USA (now known as Ethnos360). But due to unexpected delays with legally changing our name, NTM Canada is still waiting to begin using the new name.
Together let’s continue to embrace God’s vision of reaching the whole world as you and I passionately pursue Him and His goals.
Tim Whatley
Executive Director, NTM Canada
