Nazarene Missions International

Boosting missions: Nazarene Missions International is the local-church-based global mobilization and promotional arm of the Church of the Nazarene. NMI is a grass-roots missions committee structure that summons church members to intercessory prayer, to sacrificial giving, to involving children and youth, 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.

Work & Witness

Read about the very first Nazarene Work & Witness event: "Miracles in Mexico."   Devotional thoughts on Work & Witness "These hands I give to you"

"What will it take for Nazarene Missions International to be effective in the 21st Century?"

Nina Gunter said we must:

  1. Re-visit the Biblical basis for our mission
  2. Reflect deeply on the nature and heart of God
  3. Re-examine God's purpose for the Church
  4. Discover God's purpose and will for us as individuals
  5. Re-evaluate our methods
  6. Consciously and purposefully involve the next generation
  7. Determine to be mission-minded and mission-hearted
