NABM is an interdenominational evangelical Christian organization established primarily to reach Native Americans with the gospel of Jesus Christ, to teach Native Americans the Word of God, and to train Native Americans for Christian lifestyle and service. Our heart is to establish and equip (disciple) Native Americans for growth and development in spiritual maturity and spiritual multiplication.

NABA offers Bible courses without some of the burdens of a traditional college program. Pastors, teachers, lay speakers, and anyone seeking a better understanding of God's written Word can benefit from studying here. Students complete one week-long course at a time and can participate in several courses in a season. Locals are welcome to commute, and those from farther away are welcome to stay in our dorms.
