Welcome to Tribal Rescue Ministries

Learn to live out your faith as you biblically evaluate your heritage and culture. Jesus Christ calls us to be set apart. We are to be in the world, but not of the world. But what does that mean for Native Americans? Tribal Rescue Ministries is an “on the road” Christian ministry that shares the gospel of Jesus Christ to indigenous people in America and Canada using music, teaching, and preaching. 

Craig and LaDonna Smith, our founders and Christian ministers, are Native Americans from the Ojibwe and Navajo tribes, who focus on getting God’s Word out and modeling God honoring lives. Their organization is a ministry in close affiliation with The Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA). Craig is licensed as an Alliance official worker, serving as a C&MA National Evangelist while serving as president of Tribal Rescue Ministries. LaDonna has served faithfully along Craig’s side in music, teaching, and equipping many next-generation rescuers for more than 40 years.

Reaching the Lost & Helping Everyday Believers

No matter who you are, where you are, or what you’ve done, God’s grace is enough to reach you. As Christian missionaries in North America, Craig and LaDonna actively reach the lost in their tribes as well as help everyday believers become spiritual rescuers in their tribes. The Smiths invite you to join TRM by supporting us. If you’d like to schedule us at your church or organization, contact us for more information.
