Each year thousands of immigrants join our communities from other countries. We have an amazing opportunity to share the love of Jesus with people from all around the world in the Northern New England District. Refugees, international students, and immigrants of diverse backgrounds are resettling in Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire. NNED Intercultural Ministries exists to encourage and support you and your church or ministry in reaching out to your diverse community.
