NAZARENE MISSIONS INTERNATIONAL (NMI) PURPOSE & STRATEGY:
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.

LOCAL NMI PRESIDENT RESOURCES FOR 2018-2019
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.

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.
