The Church of the Nazarene’s annual Easter Offering for the World Evangelism Fund has been a denominational tradition for more than 75 years. Thanks to Nazarenes’ strong and steadfast belief in supporting the spread of the gospel, our missionaries, ministers, and laity have made Christ-like disciples in the nations through churches, schools, hospitals, Compassionate Ministry Centers, and countless other ministries. These outreaches are not possible without your gifts.
Lord of All - 2016 Theme
It is our privilege to join you in prayer and preparation for the Church of the Nazarene’s annual Easter Offering for the World Evangelism Fund. The combined generosity of our churches provides incredible resources for spreading the hope of Christ all over the world. Through offerings given to the World Evangelism Fund, we are now doing more than ever to make Christlike disciples in the nations.
Lord of All is the theme for this year’s offering. Each time you give to the World Evangelism Fund, the message reaches further, through schools, church plants, mission hospitals, and more. When we join our gifts and prayers together, God uses our humble offerings, and new voices call on the Lord of All.
I encourage you to begin organizing your church, district, field, or region for the upcoming World Evangelism Fund Offering. A life-changing story has to be shared. We can’t keep the gospel to ourselves, waiting for others to spread the hope we enjoy. Together, our gifts combine to take the message of the gospel around the world.
The global offering date for 2016 is . Some districts or churches may schedule their Easter Offering for a different date, so contact your local office with any questions about the date of the offering for your area.
