10% Approved Specials?

What do Nazarenes mean by "10% Approved Special Giving"?

"Whoever sows generously will also reap generously . . . God loves a cheerful giver." -- 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

The 10% Approved Giving label means that the particular project fits into the evangelism and church planting strategy being implemented by the Church of the Nazarene on a particular mission field. The 10% Approved Giving label is used to:

  1. Put a "seal of approval" on appeals for money
  2. Assure that projects on the priority lists of field leaders are the ones being promoted
  3. Gives a uniform standard by which to count the percentage of monies going to global missions

Examples of "10% Approved Giving" include:

Lists of "Approved Specials" are available from the World Mission office in Kansas City.
