Mokahum Ministry Center Staff and Students 2018

CIM Staff are serving among different areas of Minnesota and beyond. We hope to continue reaching out across every tribe.

Our staff missionaries are from different backgrounds of culture and family, and we join together with a common vision to build the church among Native Americans. We are serving within reservations, and Native communities to reach out with the gospel of Jesus and God’s word as truth.
