About Us

Our Mission.

Narrow Gate Exchange exists to glorify God by equipping His disciples to build sustainable kingdom businesses that strengthen and transform their communities.

We are a partnership of kingdom organizations committed to serve others with ongoing discipleship and business training, resources, and relationship. We want to see communities and nations transformed with the whole gospel of Jesus Christ. We want to see emerging economies blessed and strengthened with jobs and hope.

Our strategy is to facilitate the building of sustainable businesses led by committed disciples who have a passion for the kingdom and their communities. Our initial focus is on lumber and wood product enterprises that can be built using mills provided by Wood-Mizer, wood from local timbers, and then sold to local or export markets.

We enable qualified disciples from various countries to come to the US and receive intensive training in milling lumber and making wood products that are marketable in their countries or via export.  In addition, we help  them develop basic business skills and a business plan.  NGE Students reside at Narrow Gate Lodge where they live in a loving community and receive additional spiritual development.  We are dedicated to facilitating ongoing relationship and assistance once they return to their home countries
