Nigel ChristensenHaving parents who served in Jewish missions for over 40 years, Nigel was raised in an environment where God’s love for Israel and the Jewish people was vibrantly expressed. This gave Nigel excellent insight into God’s plans and purposes concerning Israel, past, present and future, enabling him to become an excellent resource for the local church in such topics as Jewish evangelism, Israel in prophecy, and the Jewish roots of the Christian faith. Nigel came to personal faith in Jesus around age 7, and was baptised in the sea off the coast of Tonga at age 13. His background in primary school education has afforded him teaching positions in New Zealand and overseas. With a view toward working full time as a representative of CMNZ in the lower North Island, Nigel is currently seeking prayer partners and financial supporters who will partner with him in this endeavor.  His role would include teaching in churches, supporting hosts (of Israeli travelers) in the lower North Island, and developing disciplemaking networks nationally. Nigel has an earnest desire to assist New Zealand believers in becoming more intentional in their efforts to make reproducing, fully functioning disciples of Jesus Christ, and to become more effective in sharing the Gospel with the lost sheep of the House of Israel.
