NMI Missions Services:  Our Missions service is generally on the third Sunday of every other month at 6:00 pm, beginning in June of the new church year, with the last service in March.  From time-to-time, to not preclude other services and events, we may reschedule this service .  The program theme is always about Nazarene Mission endeavors (naturally!) and are always very interesting.  The theme for the 2017-2018 church year is Purposeful Missions.  This lesson series delves into facets of global education and how missions touches them, the importance of education in missions, and an update on the NMI International Student Scholarship Fund.  Topics visit a number of compassion-based ministries in the Church of the Nazarene—agriculture-focused missions, breaking the bonds of global poverty, and how the church has developed resiliency in times of disaster.  We are eagerly looking forward to this missions program for the 2017-2018 church year.  So please continue to pray and to be enthused about the principal thrust of The Church of the Nazarene - MISSIONS.  Please check the Events page for details about these meetings.


What is Nazarene Missions International (NMI)?

     NMI is the organization representing missions for the Global Church of the  Nazarene on the regional, district, and local levels.  It is the promotional, educational, program, and fund-raising arm of Global missions, and the organization that "provides the structure and spiritual dynamic for mobilizing the church in mission."

    The principal purpose of NMI is to mobilize the church in mission through praying, discipling, giving, and educating.

NMI Objectives:

    1.  To encourage people to pray for all efforts of world evangelization;
    2.  To inform people of the world's needs and what the church is doing to meet those needs;
    3.  To challenge children and youth to learn about and participate in the mission of the church; 
    4.  To raise funds for mission outreach.

Jesus Film Ministry:  One mission's ministry that our church enthusiastically supports in earnest is JESUS Film Harvest Partners (JFHP).  This is a ministry that partners with other Kingdom ministries to make Christ-like disciples in the nations.  The Global Church of the Nazarene has partnered with Campus Crusade for Christ to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ into every nation via this film medium.  Please read more by clicking here....

ENGAGE:  Engage is a magazine, a mission publication of the General Board of the Church of the Nazarene.  The magazine is a global gathering place for Nazarenes to celebrate and share with each other how God is involving them in His mission for the world.  Content in Engage is updated as we receive new contributions. We warmly welcome our readers to register as contributors and submit their own stories, personal essays, photo essays and other content related to their participation in mission.  We also invite readers to share these stories with friends, local churches, Sunday School classes, and mission gatherings, when crediting Engage magazine as your source.
