Northern Ireland Ministry Assembly

Equipping and Encouraging Preachers



The Northern Ireland Ministry Assembly (NIMA) commenced in 2006. The aim of our assembly is to encourage and help preachers to give themselves to the indispensable work of presenting the Lord Jesus Christ to believers and unbelievers, to all ages, and to all kinds of people. We want to encourage a fresh commitment to expository preaching that will fill our churches with a hunger for God and his Word and lead to a new desire for mission.

We look forward to welcoming delegates from far and near. We firmly believe that when the Bible is opened and taught faithfully and relevantly the voice of God is heard in a living and powerful way. We therefore seek to encourage those engaged in preaching to see the expounding of Scripture as the pressing need in today's church and help equip them in the exacting work involved in such a ministry. While the assembly, therefore, is mainly for those in current full-time preaching ministries, others are welcome, especially students and spouses of Christian workers

As well as the annual assembly the Steering Group are seeking other means by which they might encourage this task such as helping to support other conferences and running preaching conferences.
