Nations Within

Nations Within is committed to building a more cohesive mosaic of people within the United States for the purpose of advancing the Gospel, one stunning piece—or person—at a time.

Who We Serve

We focus on peoples within the United States who have a primary cultural or national identity distinct from the majority culture. These distinctions can be in ethnicity, religion, or season of life (such as recent immigrants or refugees). Others simply retain their distinct identity by choice.

How We Serve

We celebrate the unique and growing mosaic of America. Our team of everyday people purposefully develops relationships with those of distinct, cultural identities in hopes of establishing believers within their natural, relational networks. We desire to see followers of Jesus living out the gospel within their own culture’s unique soil, so that they may be relevant and effective in manifesting the Kingdom of God within their communities. Just like art, it’s a messy, beautiful, and rewarding endeavor.

Why We Serve

The increasing diversity of America provides an amazing opportunity. Psalm 2:8 prompts us to ask God for the nations. Acts 17:26-27 tells us that God appointed the nations in specific places, “that they should seek God” (ESV). Showing us God’s people from every tribe, nation, and tongue, Revelation 7:9 leads us to embrace and celebrate believers from all cultures this side of Heaven.
