A thriving church for every people

Ethnos360: A Thriving Church for Every People

Of the world’s 6,500 people groups, 2,500 are still unreached. Ethnos360, founded in 1942 as New Tribes Mission, helps local churches train, coordinate and send missionaries to these peoples.

Why have we changed our name to Ethnos360?

Because we’re positioning to reach a changing world.

Our founders had a vision for reaching the world: “By unflinching determination we hazard our lives and gamble all for Christ until we have reached the last tribe regardless of where that tribe might be.” (Brown Gold magazine, Issue 1, May 1943)

That’s a far-reaching vision. A vision that represents God’s heart for the world. A vision that’s worth our getting passionate about and working together to make it a reality.

That vision hasn’t changed, but the world has. We face new challenges, and we are learning to face them together — relying upon God to unite His people to overcome them for His glory.

    In honor of Valentine’s Day tomorrow

    Here are a few of our favorite things

    This is right out of Dave’s notes that he will be teaching in class today. These truths about us are our top favorite things that we are so thankful for!

    Justification: Christ’s “right-ness” applied to me.
    Reconciliation: Brought back to original love.
    Propitiation: Satisfaction with the performance of His Son.
    Regeneration: New Creation – God is not working from the old.

    My #1 favorite is my man! First of all, he is the best husband in the world and a very active and present dad in the lives of our 2 young men. He’s been juggling teaching the students 2 hours everyday, plus being a student at seminary and keeping up with his homework there! He still enjoys having students in for great conversations and fun events. Plus he is finding time to paint the place we will be moving into next month. Plus Plus…I have everything to be thankful for in this man of mine!

    Here are a couple of my favorite things 😀
    Reece is eating up being a student here at Bible School. He is growing like crazy and rooting His trust deep in the Lord. He loves taking guys out for coffee and using his gifts of listening and counseling.

    Clark Is also turning into a man who knows who his guide and best friend is. He recently shared his testimony in front of his youth group of 150 high schoolers and was thrilled watching the Lord walk him through that important step of faith.

    The students are also on our favorites list! Like the student I will be having coffee with this afternoon, or the student Dave is meeting with this afternoon. Also like the group who is coming over for game night tonight or the group we are going bowling with this weekend. We are among 200 of our favorite things and we are truly blessed.

    And YOU!!!

    Your prayers, your support, your encouragement… All mean the world to us! It takes a team for us to be here, and you are our dream team! Thank you, thank you, for your part in allowing us to serve here in the lives of these Bible School students!!

    A new semester starts today!

    Take a look at our guest speakers for opening day!

    Colton and Shawna Williams are our guest speakers!

    They were in the first class we met when we arrived on staff here 10 years ago!

    Now they are missionaries in a tribe in Papua New Guinea where they have learned the language and are teaching and raising leaders in a brand new baby church!


    We love it when our students return to shed a spotlight on the Lord and what He is doing through them!

    Colton & Shawna are sharing with the students how much of their time has been difficult, yet they remind us how God is continually faithful and worth it in every way.

    Thank you for partnering with us, for the Coltons and Shawnas sitting in the classrooms today.

    In one month from today

    This class will be graduating!


    This will be the last class to graduate in December. From here on, incoming students will start only in August and graduations will only be in May.
    This is an end of an era, because 25 years ago I was one of the students who enrolled in the smaller January class.

    We love this group of graduates, and are excited for them as they grow in their relationship with the Lord and serve Him in what He has planned for them next!

    Thank you for your prayers and support! We are so thankful for the honor of serving and living among these amazing young people!

  • Ethnos 360 – The Fields’ – September 2019 September 7, 2019

    We joined 30 students on a trip to

    Missions training center in Canada!

    This past summer the students at the missionary training center lived for a month in a house each family built out of plastic, poles, twine and lots of duct tape!!

    There was a forest full of 15 beautiful plastic homes!!

    They were learning how difficult life off the grid might be when they are missionaries overseas.

    This past weekend we got to join 30 of our Bible school students to take a road trip to the “jungle camp”!

    The students at the jungle camp gave our students 2 days of classes around the fire on God’s heart for those who have never heard the gospel.

    They impacted our students on what our job as Christians should be!

    Hearts were listening and open to be used by the Lord…in whatever way He asked.

    We are only praising the Lord!!

  • Ethnos 360 – The Fields’ August 2019 September 7, 2019

    What is our family celebrating?

    Our 10th anniversary!

    We continually thank the Lord for allowing us to serve Him here at Bible School. The beautiful God-loving students we get to live among amaze us every single year. We pray for many more years to get to continue this life God has given us.

    What has happened just this week?
    Student leadership camping trip!

    We got to spend 5 days with the student room leaders and enjoy the beauty of creation together. There were around 120 of us in tents/hammoks and we got to eat great food swim, sing, hike, share, have wonderful conversations, and bond together. It was super special because our son Reece was one of the student leaders! Clark, who is 16 enjoys the many brothers he has surrounding him too. It was absolutely fantastic!


    3 Days until the semester begins!!!

    Please pray for the 100 Freshmen who are driving here right now. Please also pray for the upper classmen as they do a beautiful job of very warmly welcoming all the newcomers. This is going to be a year of growth and maturity and stretching and faith building for all of us!

    Thank you so very much for praying for us!!
    Dave, Kim, Reece & Clark Field
