Nazarene Missions International

Nazarene Missions International (NMI) is the division within the Church of the Nazarene that seeks to mobilize and involve local churches in world missions. The international Church of the Nazarene ministers in more than 160 nations around the globe. Our local congregation helps to support nearly 700 missionaries through its financial giving toward the World Evangelism Fund and other special giving opportunities. West Side regularly learns about Nazarene world missions through books, CDs and services with special missionary speakers.

Each year, West Side's local NMI council, headed by President Rachel Burch, presents Faith Promise Weekend. During this weekend, the council throws a themed banquet that the congregation attends. The banquet is always a fun time and has had many interesting themes: Dr. Seuss, a spy theme, the Wizard of Oz, an Asian theme, a board game theme and many, many others. Over the course of the weekend, special missionary guests speak to the congregation about their work in world mission areas. The weekend is capped off with members of the congregration pledging to support missions for the upcoming year.

The NMI council is also responsible for a number of other areas, including comnmunicating with and supporting LINKS missionaries; Alabaster offerings to raise funds to build churches, schools and medical facilities in world mission areas; and education programs for children, youth and adults.
