Nazarene Missions International (NMI)

 

The purpose of NMI shall be to mobilize the Church of the Nazarene in missions through:

  • praying
  • giving
  • educating, and
  • engaging children and youth

NMI is a direct line for missions in the local church and has often been described as “the face of mission in the local church.” In every sense of the word, NMI is the denomination’s organizational representative, dedicated to the cause of world evangelization. While other departments also support missions, it is the distinctive task of NMI to bring each mission area into the local church in such a vital way that every Nazarene will be glad to be a part of global outreach, spreading the good news of full salvation (holiness) to the ends of the earth. NMI provides the infrastructure, the spiritual dynamic vehicle, whereby the local church is mobilized in mission. 

 

 
 
 
 

Group Project for Missions!

 

Crisis Care Kits are made by Nazarene volunteers and are a tangible way that people can get involved in the disaster response process.  Thousands of Crisis Care Kits are made, stored, and distributed globally each year as needs inevitably arise around the world.

 
The “Faith Promise roadmap for supporting Missions”

  • Pray and ask God to help you know the amount you should give on a monthly or weekly basis throughout the Faith Promise year time frame.
  • Calculate what amount you would have given in 8-10 months what ever that Faith Promise time frame is.
  • On Faith Promise Sunday submit the amount as your Gift by Faith that God will provide that amount to give over and above your tithe.
  • Start giving either by putting the amount in a marked envelope marked “Faith Promise” , online indygracepoint.org / giving / Faith Promise tab, on a weekly or monthly basis – whatever your plan is.
  • Grace Pointe sends the WEF in on a monthly basis – this is then used to take care of the Missionary familys and their needs around the world.
 
 
“We live by faith, not by sight” 2 Corinthians 5:7″
 
 
Faith Promise is a commitment made in Faith between and individual God. A biblical method used by the Church of the Nazarene for raising financial support for God’s global mission. A Faith Promise is a commitment made in faith between an individual and God, based on what the person believes God wants him or her to give. Trusting God’s faithfulness to provide the amount God has ask them to give by Faith to support both Global and local missions. The World Evangelism Fund fuels the Church of the Nazarene’s global mission and is the foundation of a churchs’s Faith Promise budget.
 
 

Alabaster Offering

 

What is Alabaster Offering?

The Alabaster Offering provides funds for property and buildings around the world. While we understand the church consists of the people of God and not a building, buildings erected for the purpose of ministry help provide a sense of permanence, functionally enhance ministry efforts, and convey an attitude that the Church of the Nazarene intends to “put down roots.” 

Use of Alabaster funds
 

Alabaster funds are to be used for new churches to:
    •    Purchase a property or church building
    •    Purchase or build a church parsonage
    •    Build a church building
    •    Conversion of a property into a church gathering space
    •    Meet initial costs for renting a church meeting space for a limited period

Alabaster funds may also be used to:
    •    Purchase or build missionary homes
    •    Purchase or build regional or field missions facilities
    •    Build or repurpose buildings on Bible college campuses

At Grace Pointe, we encourage you to save your coins all year long and bring them in for Alabaster Offering.
