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:

  1. Praying - Prayer is the lifeblood of ALL that we do.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

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.
