Prepare for the challenge. Get the training you need to be a missionary to some of the world’s most remote tribal people.
The Missionary Training Center prepares you for career ministry with New Tribes Mission. Think about it: If you were given the opportunity today to plant a church in an unreached tribe, would you know where to start? Missionary training teaches you about the complex concepts involved in tribal church planting, such as understanding culture and learning language, so you can effectively communicate cross-culturally. We’re also vitally concerned about your walk with God, so that in an isolated, high-pressure environment, your relationship with God can survive and even thrive.
Prerequisite: Minimum two years of Bible training or the equivalent. New Tribes Bible Institute exists to provide this, but the requirement also may be met by Bible or Christian college courses, equivalent training in a local church, or life experience.

You’ll study every book of the Bible in the two-year, college-level course at New Tribes Bible Institute. Your studies will help you understand the call to mission as a natural outgrowth of God’s love, grace and mercy. NTBI or equivalent training or experience is a prerequisite for NTM's missionary training.

Each step of the way in your church planting ministry, you'll need additional training -- and you'll get it. You'll get an orientation and learn the country's language when you reach the country where you will serve. When you get to a remote village, experienced missionaries help you learn the culture and language, develop a written language, teach people to read and write, translate, and more. Seminars and workshops and training sessions for you and your co-workers provide additional opportunities to refine the skills you need to be effective in ministry.
