Brief history of Nazarene Missions International (NMI)

"A church without missions is a church without a mission. A church that is not reaching out is passing out." -- Victor Patterson, Northwest Nazarene University student

Story of what is now called Nazarene Missions International

NMI is the grass-roots mobilizer of passion and prayer and financial support for the ends- of-the-earth outreach of the Church of the Nazarene. At the global level, the NMI holds an international convention in conjunction with the quadrennial (once every four years) Nazarene General Assembly. While the NMI has its own Global Council composed of representatives from all world regions, it operates within the World Mission Office structure of the General Board.
