International Ministries - Bible Schools and Seminaries
Dear NMI President,
Here it is – August already!
The emphasis for August for NMI is Links. What is Links, you ask. Here is the answer in a nutshell!
What is Links
The Links program of the Church of the Nazarene is a network of personal connections between missionaries and Nazarenes around the world. Missionaries are assigned to districts and, then on the district level, connected to local churches. This gives each church an opportunity to become personally acquainted with the missionary family and their field of service. Typically, churches send cards, cash gifts, packages, and other remembrances to their Links missionaries.
In return, the churches feel a sense of involvement with the global mission enterprise of the church through regular correspondence from the missionaries, updates from their field, and even through deputation services while the missionaries are on home assignment. The missionaries are encouraged, knowing people care and pray for them. The relationships built over time personalize names and faces that both the missionaries and their Links churches value highly.
You will find many resources on the CCD NMI website to help you promote this important part of our church’s ministry.
Thank you for your service to the Kingdom!
