Nazarene Missions International:


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

  • NMI gathers believers together for prayer in the local church, linking us to our brothers and sisters in Christ across the globe. 
  • The World Evangelism Fund combines gifts from each person and church to fund ministries everywhere, thereby fueling the Church of the Nazarene’s mission. 
  • Through the Alabaster Offeringministries around the world receive funs to purchase property and buildings. 
  • We want to engage children and youth by encouraging churches to involve them in all missions endeavors, and to nurture them as they seek to respond to God’s call.
  • LINKS strategically connects Nazarene missionaries and Nazarene churches through prayer, personal contact, and generous giving. 

The Church of the Nazarene has been global from its founding. The Church of the Nazarene is organized into six regions in 164 world areas. Each week, Nazarenes worship in more than 212 languages or tribal languages. To learn more about the church across the world, you can visit the different regional websites.
