About Us

The Mission Training Center in New York City exists to prepare workers to reach the unreached by sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ across cultures. Our location in Elmhurst, Queens - one of the most culturally diverse neighborhoods in the world - uniquely positions us to provide both academic and practical training in missions so that workers may labor effectively in the harvest field. The Mission Training Center is an arm of DestiNations International, a conservative Anabaptist mission agency dedicated to planting churches among unreached people groups. DNI operates under the direction of the Biblical Mennonite Alliance.
