Mission Partners

Our Mission Partners serve in a variety of locations around the world. They work under the authority of a local church, and seek to build deep relationships with their communities. Equipped and supported by the NZCMS staff and a team of supporters, each of our Partners serves with the unique combination of passions, skills, and experience that they hold.
