Maori Indigenous Scholarship

We believe the Lord has placed a specific and unique call on Maori as the indigenous peoples of New Zealand. We seek to partner with the Lord’s heart to see Maori championed, discipled, and sent out both in Aotearoa and to the nations to act as agents of reconciliation. We believe the Lord is raising young Maori leaders for this purpose, and we are passionate about recognizing this as a community. We also acknowledge the dual blessing in Maori shaping our multicultural community as we encounter Jesus uniquely through them. We seek to be committed to what the Lord is doing in Aotearoa with Maori and so we offer this scholarship.

What people are saying

I would never have imagined all that I discovered about myself and my Creator at Zion. I went to New Zealand to get away from my life, to start-over, and didn’t ever intend to pursue Him, but He met me here. He brought me to a place of humility and uncovered my brokenness. Ever since then He has been gently rebuilding me into the woman that He created and cherishes. Zion was the first place that I met a community of sons and daughters who love their Father and want to change the world for His glory, and because of His love, and I am so stoked to now be a part of that. All I want to do is what my Father created me to do; to know His love, and to allow it to flow out of me like a sweet fragrance that the world will notice, wonder, and want.

I came here to find God and to know Jesus better . I wanted to know what my identity is in God. In Him we are pure. God is a loving father and he has only loving ways for us. We don’t have to be afraid, because God cares about us and He loves us and He wants a relationship with us! To come here was the best decision I ever made.
