Area 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 in the 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.
