Native Missionary Movement (NMM) is a pioneering, indigenous Evangelical church movement based in Udaipur, Rajasthan in northern India. NMM states that it's vision and aim is "to reach the most unreached millions in India with the love of Jesus Christ through training, sending, equipping, and supporting church-planting."


NMM takes a distinctly indigenous, Indian approach to evangelism, establishing churches that are suited to the local culture and led by locals. This approach is referred to as the Indigenous church mission theory which was created in response to colonialism and paternalism exercised by western missionaries. This approach was advocated by Hudson Taylor, founder of China Inland Mission as well as Henry Venn, Anthony Norris Groves, John Livingstone Nevius, Dixon Edward Hoste, Roland Allen, and Dutch missiologist David Bosch.

NMM, as a non-profit organization, also operates schools, orphanages, medical clinics, public health projects, and literacy programs.

NMM is a registered member of the India Mission Association, which is a national body of Christian mission organizations.
