NATIONS FOR CHRIST MINISTRY’S WEBSITE! WE WELCOME YOU TO THE 27+ Countries Impacting Nations for Christ
since 1991

About Us

Nations for Christ is a unique global outreach ministry to international students located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Because young people are coming from all over the world to the United States, we are positioned to reach them with the Gospel from within our own country.

Get involved with us

Our Mission

Our International Leadership Team is committed to obey the Great Commission through establishing friendships and discipling college students from around the world.

While the world is rapidly changing, traditional methods of global outreach are facing various and extremely difficult challenges in fulfilling the Great Commission. In some countries, these methods have become impossible to implement. Please explore this unique ministry and witness how the Lord is doing amazing things and changing lives of young people from all over the world.

What We Do

Many international students have never had the opportunity to hear the Gospel before coming to the USA, and so our first priority is to develop friendships with the young people. Then we offer them the opportunity to be discipled through exposing them to Christian worship services, interactive Bible studies and one-on-one mentoring.

Testimonial

  • A year ago, I visited one place, I could not even imagine existed. This trip shattered my ideas about the world in which I live. The world seemed to be transformed and became completely different !!! I would not have been so emotional and impressed if it weren’t for the people whom I met and communicated throughout the summer. Alexey and Tatyana and all other volunteers, you are just a miracle and a huge blessing not only for me, but also for all students from around the world who come under the Work and Travel program. Thank you very much) !! But all this would not have happened if not for the will of God.  And thanks to this trip I know amazing people not only in the USA, but also in Russia. I will forever remember the summer of 2019 spent in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, USA. And for all of this I thank the Lord !

  • I sincerely state that this place you are visiting and spending time at is awesome. It’s a really great chance to get to know the Lord, His life on this earth, and His death for our sins. Everybody in this community will be there for you with kindness and generosity, they will listen to you, help you, and take care of you as much as they can and as much as Lord lets them. I want you to enjoy the time you spend there and your conversations with Mr. Kochan, but I also want you to think about the way this community treats you, and how they are so nice to people they have never met before. Finally, you will realize that this kindness, generosity, innocence, wisdom and much more can only come from Lord’s genuine and unique religious teaching. Thank you for your time. God bless you.
