Missions Interlink New Zealand is the association of mission organisations and mission passionate people in Aotearoa New Zealand. We walk together into the future of mission with our membership of more than 100 organisations, churches and individuals. Together, we represent approximately 1,500 workers in mission from and within Aotearoa New Zealand. We are but one of many national and regional evangelical missions associations around the world.
Our ultimate aim is to see disciples developed everywhere, baptised in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, passionate in their worship of God, growing in their unique gifts of service and actively involved in extending God’s kingdom around the world. To achieve this, we work with our members to encourage mission promotion, training, advocacy, support, recruitment, sending, ministering, caring, sustaining, and receiving. Because we believe this is best done in partnership between mission workers, local churches and organisations that specialize in helping people to carry out and stay on mission.
We provide a missions consultancy service to help individuals, member organisations, governance teams, church mission teams and churches navigate their way through the tides of change buffeting mission theology and practice.
We keep apprised of the latest missions thinking from around the world and within Aotearoa New Zealand. Together, as a community, our research produces training material, handbooks, guidelines, codes of practice and articles that help our members navigate their way into a fruitful future and stay on mission.
We formally represent the missions community of Aotearoa New Zealand globally and locally: to the Church, in academic circles, before government, and to the global missions community. Our aim is to listen to and amplify a cohesive narrative of mission from and within Aotearoa New Zealand to bless the nations.
