MISSIONS - Areas of Impact

Nazarene Missions International focuses on five strategic areas where the local church can have maximum impact on missions in the Church of the Nazarene.

The first is Prayer.  NMI gathers believers together for prayer int he local church, linking us to our brothers and sisters in the Christ across the globe.

The second is World Evangelism Fund, which fuels the Church of the Nazarene's mission by combining gifts from each person and church to fund ministries everywhere.

Through the Alabaster Offering, the third emphasis, ministries around the world receive funds to purchase property and buildings.

The fourth is to engage children and youth through education and fostering calls to missions.

Links, the last area of emphasis, strategically connects Nazarene missionaries and Nazarene churches through prayer, personal contact, and generous giving.

Children's Mission Project

Almost a billion people are living in our world without clean water.  Waterborne diseases, lack of sanitation, and poor hygiene are the leading cause of death.  Recent natural disasters in coastal areas of Sri Lanka have resulted in polluted drinking water.
Please be a part of the WaPac Children’s Project to collect $6,000 for a biologic water filtration system.  This technology will allow pond water to be cleaned for consumption on this island nation in the Indian Ocean.
Together we can make a difference!
