About Verre Naasten

Verre Naasten litteraly means ‘faraway neigbours’. Verre means ‘faraway’. Naasten means ‘neighbour’, not in the sense of someone living next to you, but in the meaning it has in the parable of the Good Samaritan. The mission of our organization is sharing faith worldwide.We exist because 2 out of 3 people worldwide don’t know Jesus. Our goal is to make Jesus known worldwide and share our faith in Him, to the glory of God.

As an organization we connect churches in the Netherlands to our worldwide partners. Churches, schools, funds and donors in the Netherlands support our partners with money, advice, encouragement, prayer and inspiration. Our partners around the globe share the Gospel in their own environment, in words and deeds, so non-Christians get to know Jesus and start following Him. We also believe our partners can be an inspiration to the support-churches in the Netherlands.

Core values

Of the values that we find important in doing our work, we mention here:

  • We believe in the strength of the local churchbody: local churches know their own context best. We support them with advice, encouragement and are able to support with financial resources. But in the end the work has to be done by the local churches.
  • We believe in equivalency: we don’t support churches and organizations with financial resources only, but we invest in partnerships. We believe partnerships make us thrive. We put work in our relationships, support our partners, but we also expect to get something out of it: inspiration, encouragement, new insights. Verre Naasten has a focus on long-term partnerships.

If you want to know more about the way we work and the things we value, please read our policy documents below and feel free contact us.

We find it important to work in open and safe cooperation’s. In case this is not reflected well in our way of doing, we appreciate being informed in order to be able to take steps.
