(Formerly Nazarene World Mission Society)
Boosting missions: The Nazarene Missions International is the local-church-based global mobilization and promotional arm of the Church of the Nazarene. NMI (formerly NWMS) is a grass roots missions committee structure that summons church members to prayer, to giving and to sending.
NMI is a mobilization organization; though it promotes the global vision plan of the Church of the Nazarene, NMI does not administer Nazarene world evangelism efforts.
NMI exists to mobilize the church in mission through prayer, education, giving, and interactive experiences

"What will it take for Nazarene Missions International to be effective in the 21st Century?"
Nina Gunter says we must:
- Re-visit the Biblical basis for our mission
- Reflect deeply on the nature and heart of God
- Re-examine God's purpose for the Church
- Discover God's purpose and will for us as individuals
- Re-evaluate our methods
- Consciously and purposefully involve the next generation
- Determine to be mission-minded and mission-heartedFrom a speech to a missions conference in Ft. Worth in September, 1999
