World Misssions Giving: Ten Percent 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 Global Mission office in the Global Ministry Center in Lenexa, Kansas or from the various regional offices.

11 24 One person gives freely, yet gains even more;
    another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.
25 A generous person will prosper;
    whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.
-- Proverbs 11:24- 25
