Just as the earliest Christians “pooled their resources so that each person's need was met,” (Acts 2:45, The Message) believers today eagerly share what they have to bring new members into God’s family.
One simple and essential way to express mission passion is financial support. NMI has designed a bunch of opportunities to support mission workers and meet human needs around the world through resource sharing.
Nazarenes around the world generously share their resources to expand Christ’s kingdom on earth!
Churches across the district organize short term mission trips to other world areas.
For information on attending or organizing a trip, contact our council Work and Witness coordinator Ralph Goodwin

The Memorial Roll presentation is at the NMI Convention on Saturday, April 9.
The Memorial Roll, established in 1919, is a way to honor deceased friends and loved ones. A certificate is issued in the name of the person memorialized and is often presented to a family member or displayed in the church.
Tropical Cyclone Pam, a category 5 storm, slammed into the Vanuatu islands in the Melanesia South Pacific Field late in the evening of Friday, March 13. As winds started to subside in the early hours Saturday morning, a trail of destruction was left behind. Dozens of deaths have been reported, and heavy winds and rain have destroyed many homes and crops.
According to on-the-ground reports, streets are littered with debris and upturned trees, and entire villages have been blown away.
Cyclone Pam came ashore reportedly with 160 mph winds, gusting to 195 mph (257 kph gusts to 315 kph). The Bureau of Meteorology is calling Cyclone Pam “one of the most intense cyclones ever recorded in the southern hemisphere.”
There are 11 local Nazarene churches in Vanuatu. The church leaders in Vanuatu are requesting prayer and support as they work to minister to members and neighbors who have been affected by this devastating storm.
