A movement of God Through the People of God
Our purpose is to pioneer, develop, and resource local, interdependent and sustainable Nazarene churches.
At the recent meeting of the General Board of the International Church of the Nazarene, the BGS has presented a refined and updated view of Nazarene Missions and will be sending a 12.5in x 9in x 3.25in box of resources to every church and to our District Superintendent beginning March 22 with 8 lbs of promotional resources to educate and inform church leadership and their congregations.

Also, between now and March 22 , every lead pastor on the district should be notified by a phone call from the Global Ministry Center letting them know that the kits will be coming.

If you subscribe to the digital or print edition of  The Holiness Today, the March/April 2019  issue is a special issue focusing on  Nazarene Missions : A movement of God Through the People of God  and all this information is presented there as well.

The box that is scheduled to arrive is sent in care of the  CHURCH,   not any specific person in the church. 

It will contain the following items:

  • 1 copy of the Special Edition of the March/April edition of The Holiness Today.
  • 1 copy of a Sermon Guide for the lead pastor involving information for 2 sermons to clearly articulate the change.
  • 1 copy of a 3 session Leader guide that is designed to help leaders 
  • Understand and clearly articulate the purpose and method of Nazarene Missions

Nazarene Missions  is  NOT  just another term for  Nazarene Mission International These are two separate entities

Nazarene Missions is the General Board document/statement similar to Nazarene Essentials thus, probably why the box is being sent to the churches as opposed to a specific person.

Nazarene Mission International is the organization that is tasked to help church leadership educate and clearly articulate the Nazarene Mission to their congregations so please be on the look out for the box of resources being sent and distribute to all those in leadership who need to know.

As always, your district council is here to help you with any questions you may have. Feel free to contact our District NMI president, Kathy Pelley or connect with any district council member .
