NVM’s Foundation: Spiritual Development
The foundation of Nehemiah Vision Ministries is Spiritual Development. God’s help is required in order to live a fully productive life and to have the ability to change Haiti. This is made possible by having a personal relationship with him through his Son, Jesus. Growing in Christ makes it possible to continue and expand this process. The four NVM pillars guide the formulation and execution of our program activities. They help define what we do and provide boundaries for the scope of our actions. And all the activities under each pillar are intended to support and make possible the actualization of our organizational vision. NVM has a big vision. Progress toward the vision will not occur unless it is supported by a strong foundation and pillars.
Haitians are members of God’s Kingdom and are living lives that please God.
Equip others to multiply themselves and to develop spiritual leaders through evangelism and discipleship. Knowing God personally is the starting point of moving from where we are to where God wants us to be. This is true for individuals and for Haiti. Having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is the way we can know God, and growing in the Christian faith is what God wants for all his children. The natural outgrowth of Christian maturity is loving others and reaching out to them in tangible ways. That is why a foundation of spiritual development is so important for all we do. There is a cultural expectation by the Haitian government that expects the church to be involved in social outreach. That is in line with our mission. The pillars provide an organizational mandate to be involved in the lives of people, helping them move from darkness to light and from hopelessness to eternal life. In order to fulfill the mission of our foundation, NVM has started a church on the campus and is building partnerships with local pastors to provide guidance and assistance in their ministries.
