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.

17 Of our awesome Bible school students graduated today!!!
Praise the Lord, 11 of them want to be involved in full-time ministry!!! The others are not sure exactly what the Lord has for them next, but they are “moving forward” with the Lord as their guide.
There is nothing better than knowing our students know the Lord, are in love with Him and desire to follow Him all the days of their lives!
Celebrate with us at this good news!
Thank you for partnering with our family so that we can be a part of the lives of the students here as they learn, grow and prepare for what the Lord has for them next.

A HUGE praise we want to share with you…
#1 While Dave was teaching full time this semester, he was also continuing his education at seminary. (He takes one class per semester…the 5 year plan:) He learned a ton, loved the class, and passed with flying colors!!
#2 God touched a church’s heart to pay for Dave’s seminary class for next semester! Dave had already registered to start the new class January 10th even though we didn’t have the funds for it yet… and then God provided the money, showing us He really does want Dave to continue taking classes. It’s sooo cool when He shows us we are doing the right thing and takes care of the path ahead of us.

- Ethnos360 Bible Institute, August 2017 October 9, 2017
Many new beginnings!
Today is OPENING DAY for the new Bible School year! (and we have a new name: Ethnos360 Bible Institute.) Many Freshman just arrived and the excitement is high for what God has planned to teach all of us in this new year!
Today is Reece’s first day at his first full-time job! He drove off this morning to work for a year at a furniture store where he will be delivering and assembling. His plan is to save enough to be a student here at Bible school by next year! We are excited for all God has planned to grow him in this year!
This week Dave will begin his 9th year of full-time teaching God’s Word. What a privilege! He will also be commuting one day a week to seminary to take a class.
This week starts my change of ministry. For 8 years I worked in the school’s mail room, but now I will begin serving one day a week in child care and also front desk receptionist. I’m glad to work with the student’s babies and little ones so that the mom’s can be full-time students.
Another new happening is that Clark will start high school (homeschooling with me) in about 2 weeks. Reece enjoys happily reminding him that he has 4 more years of school;)
God is GOOD and His plans of growth for us are good. On to a new year!
Dave, Kim, Reece & Clark Field
Just as a reminder 🙂
New Tribes Mission is now called Ethnos360
New Tribes Bible Institute is now called

- Dave & Kim Field March Update April 6, 2017
So much happens so fast around here!
Since we returned from Thailand, we made a power point with pictures of the mission work being done, what the needs are and how to be involved. We have shared at a staff event, a student chapel, and a church. Continue reading →
- Dave & Kim Field February Update February 6, 2017
That was a fun football game to watch…
But the best part was when the students decided to use the half-time to turn off the game and use that time to pray for a very special people group in Papua New Guinea.
The Mali-Baining people group, who have been taught by the missionaries the story of creation up to Christ, will be taught about the cross TODAY!
Now THAT’S a Victory being celebrated in heaven!!! A victory that will last for eternity!
Please pray that the Mali-Baining people will understand and believe what they hear today.
Celebrating with you,
Dave, Kim, Reece and Clark Field

- Dave & Kim Fields December Update December 6, 2016
Today was a big day for Dave!
Today is the last day of the semester here at Bible School. Dave finished up Galatians and Romans, so It’s a sad day for him, who bonds with the students and then it’s transition time again.
What will he do now? Well, for one, next week is his own finals week for the class he is taking at Seminary. That’ll keep him hopping. After he aces that, 🙂 he will be preparing messages to teach for the missions conference he was invited to be a speaker at in Thailand. (in one month from today!)
So that is a little wrap-up of Dave’s life in a nutshell. 🙂
Thank you for praying for my man,
Kim for us 4

- Dave & Kim Fields End of Summer Update – July 2016 August 2, 2016
Three top favorites of this summer…
Yes! Students are headed this way to begin the FALL SEMESTER here at New Tribes Bible Institute, so its time to wrap up summer. Here are 3 of our main events of this Summer:
- Dave and I went away on a week trip to celebrate our 20th Wedding anniversary!!! We feel beyond blessed to have each other in our adventure of life!
- Our family vacation this year was a canoe trip into back-country where we camped in God’s beautiful creation!
- Big News...Dave is going back to school! He will continue his normal teaching here at Bible School every day, and at the same time he will take one class per semester at a seminary near us. He is super excited to learn a ton and apply it to his daily teaching.
Thank you for your prayers for us as we transition from summer to the arrival of our incredible students!

- Dave & Kim Field’s Spring Break (Missions Update) June 9, 2016
Spring Break was amazing!!
Three things happened for our family:
1) We got to travel to Pennsylvania with our Bible School Senior class for a week at NEW TRIBES Mission TRIBAL MISSIONS experience.
2) We got to visit my sister Vicki in Pennsylvania and spend Easter weekend with her family!
3) Our boys had birthdays!!! Clark turned 13 and Reece turned 17!!!
That Tribal Missions Experience was special!! We got to live with our 40 students as they got a huge eye full of what it would be like to be a missionary in a tribal setting!
There were classes on how to learn a culture, and a language. We entered a large room that was decorated like a village with some missionaries painted black and speaking a different language, and it was our job to try to learn a few of their words! The classes on understanding peoples world view and how to live in a tribal setting were so real! The students got to butcher a pig and cook it in a hot pit in the ground, sleep in hammocks in primitive cabins, and walk a 3 mile hike past 18 waterfalls. It wasn’t all work and no play though…We enjoyed volleyball, playing games together late, and of course enjoying delicious food. It is hard to describe that week, but the students were shown the heart of the Lord for people groups who have never had a missionary yet. They came away with a much clearer picture of where there are needs, what New Tribes missionaries do and what it could possibly be like for them to be tribal missionary. Reece said “I’ve never been so proud to be a New Triber!”
