Survivor kit for leaders - an idea similar to this one
NMI resource pages
At a district Nazarene Missions International
conventionin in Oklahoma, we welcomed each pastor who had arrived on the district after the
previous year's distrrict convention with a sack full of little gifts. Even with all the items listed
below, the total cost per sack (including the sack) was very little. Almost all the items were
purchased in large grocery stores or at Wal-Mart. The darts were purchased in a sporting goods
store. The bi-lingual stickers were left-overs from a Work & Witness promotion.
Only a couple of the items listed below relate to specifically to Oklahoma. With very little
adaptation, this idea could be used on any district.
