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 in global missions activities, and to listening for God's call to be a go-er.
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
