The original (North) Americans could become the evangelists who will help win (North) America for Christ!"

Symposium 2012 Highlights
“After being told for years that being a Christian meant abandoning their First Nations identity, the brothers and sisters of NAIITS boldly and joyfully follow the Jesus Way as Native people. The NAIITS Conference is a celebration of love for the Creator bound tightly with rigorous scholarship from an indigenous perspective. Contextualized theological reflection mixed with stories of pain and hope punctuate the NAIITS gathering. Native and non-Native participants are welcomed into this circle of conversation. It’s a conversation we must not miss.”
Professor of New Testament
"The Best Yet!!"
"The way you blend story and scholarship is unheard of in any other conference environment I attend."
"For those of us who have been part of shaping the NAIITS community for the past 12 years, we certainly see a strengthening of our vision and a maturing of our ability to engage in meaningful conversation in pursuit of that vision."
