To mobilize the church in mission through praying discipling, giving and educating.

  • The church prays for global mission endeavors

  • The church provides opportunities, especially for children and youth, to become involved in the mission of the church and to respond to God's call.

  • The church gives at least 5.5 percent of current income for the World Evangelism Fund and to other ministries/offerings as possible.

  • The church utilizes mission resources and participates in ministries to develop global awareness.

--Christy Boes, SWID NMI President

Give Thanks

As followers of Christ, we are all called to be ambassadors of the Kingdom throughout the world. And through the global Church of the Nazarene, you are doing exactly that. Not only are you showing Christ’s love to your neighbors locally, but you are also showing it to those thousands of miles away.

When your church supports this fund, they are supporting the actions of Nazarenes loving others in Christ’s name, truly making Christlike disciples in all nations.

Africa, O Africa by Louise Robinson Chapman, Edited by Chuck and Doris Gailey

A story of incredible resilience and passionate faith in a country not her own, Louise Robinson Chapman’s Africa, O Africa is a reminder that God calls and sends people who are willing to say ‘Yes’ to His will. This updated edition, by Chuck and Doris Gailey, retired missionaries to Africa, brings the reader the voice of Dr. Chapman, and picks up the story since the book was first released in 1945. MP3 (zipped) audio download

Where a Yes Can Take You by Ramón Sierra and Juan Vázquez Pla

The stories of four Puerto Rican couples whose lives were impacted by missionaries who first came to their shores. See how God chose to use the faithful ‘Yes’ to extend influence through these families in countries far from the little island of Puerto Rico: to South and Central America, and beyond to the streets of major cities in the United States. MP3 (zipped) audio download

Maps Beyond Geography by Stéphane Tibi

Maps are about more than finding your way through geographical obstacles and terrains. StudyMaps is a new way of looking at both faith and scripture, and of engaging and strengthening the memory to prompt us to evangelism, discipleship, and maturity.
