2019 NMI YEAR END REPORTING INFORMATION
Attached you will find directions for filling out the End Year Report for NMI as well as the NEW form! The form is very different (easier) than the one used in the past. All of our churches should be Mission Priority One now. The Delegates for NMI Convention form is also attached. These are the only two report due. Links for these forms can be found at the end of this section. These should be completed and emailed to Renee Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to her at 691 South Concord Drive, Princeton, IN 47670. These reports are due by Thursday, June 6!
We encourage each church to participate in Missionary Care. One way to do this is by adding names to the Church of the Nazarene Memorial Roll. People added do not have to be a member of the Church of the Nazarene. A video presentation will be played during the NMI Convention. Memorial Roll pictures should be emailed to Debbie Betts at email@example.com or mailed to her at 1143 W Stan Mar Estates Road Brazil, IN 47834. Please be sure to include clearly printed names for each picture. If you have questions, please contact her at 812-653-9607. These pictures and names are due by Friday, June 14.
NMI Convention will be Monday, July 22 at 9am (CST). This will take place at the Old National Events Plaza in Evansville, Indiana. Our speaker will be Dwayne Mills with Appalachia Reach Out. Special Guests will be Rob North from Africa Nazarene University in Kenya and Carol Rittenhouse, one of our new L.I.N.K.S. Missionary serving in Costa Rica. You won't want to miss what God has in store for us.
I have attached the NMI Scholarship. All scholarship applications must be sent to me, Christy Boes, by June 6, 2019. They can be emailed to Cboes1972@gmail.com or mailed to 13255 E. 100 N. Columbus, IN 47203. This scholarship is for any SWID college student attending a Nazarene University that has been called to mission work. This scholarship will be given at the NMI Convention in July.
World Evangelism Fund (WEF) is the primary way for the Church of the Nazarene to support the worldwide Nazarene missionary effort. The goal for every Nazarene church is 5.5% of the local church's income. As of May 6, not every church on SWID has achieved this. There is still time to give to the WEF. As a district, we are close to meeting our goal. We might not all be able to meet our goal, BUT every church should be able to give to WEF! Please pray that God will guide our district and speak to our hearts as we give to WEF to further build HIS Kingdom!
Thanks to everyone for all that is accomplished for Nazarene Missions both locally and globally. Remember, your mission field is wherever God places you. Will you let him use YOU to "GO LIGHT YOUR WORLD"?
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to text/call me at 812-371-0722 or email me at Cboes1972@gmail.com.
we are nmi
We are Vision. We are Impact. We are people united in our belief that our involvement changes lives worldwide. We are a cross-cultural, cross generational movement that mobilizes the Church of the Nazarene in missions.
The 5 areas of IMPACT for NMI are:
Praying - Prayer is the lifeblood of ALL that we do.
World Evangelism Fund - WEF is the key to the fulfillment of our mission. The purpose of WEF is to sustain valuable ministries through consistent mission funding. Each church is asked to give at least 5.5% of the income to WEF.
Alabaster - All contributions to Alabaster are used to construct churches, clinics, schools, parsonages, district centers, and to purchase land. No funds are used for adminstrative costs.
Engage Children and Youth - NMI encourages all churches to involve children and youth in all missions endeavors and to nurture them as they seek to respond to His call.
Links - This connects Nazarene missionaries and Nazarene churches through prayer, personal contact and generous giving. This gives each church an opportunity to beocme personally connected wih a missionary fmaily. Our Links missionaries need us. We are their extended family.
We want our next generation to have more passion than we do and to embrace God’s work in our local communities as well as in our world with an enthusiasm that surpasses our own. WE MUST engage them, empower them, equip them, expose them, encourage them, and excite them as it relates to missions.
--Christy Boes, SWID NMI President

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. 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.
