Nazarene Compassionate Ministries 

Following the example of Jesus, NCM partners with local Nazarene congregations around the world to clothe, shelter, feed, heal, educate, and live in solidarity with those who suffer under oppression, injustice, violence, poverty, hunger, and disease. NCM exists in and through the church to proclaim the Gospel to all people.

There are several ways our church helps NCM each year through offerings, Child Sponsorship, School Pal-Paks, and Crisis Care Kits.

 


Alabaster Offering 

The Alabaster Offering provides funds for property and buildings around the world. Eighty percent of the money is used in world mission areas, and twenty percent goes to multicultural congregations in the United States and Canada. Alabaster funds help provide land for most Work and Witness projects. The entire offering goes toward the construction of churches, schools, medical facilities, and homes for missionaries and national workers.

The Alabaster Offering gets to the mission via several avenues. The most widely used is the Alabaster Box. Individuals are challenged to regularly contribute the cost of items they desire but do not need. The boxes also serve as reminders to pray for those people who will benefit from Alabaster buildings.

The Alabaster Offering is collected in February and September of each year.


 

 World Mission Broadcast

The Annual World Mission Broadcast Offering provides resources to reach millions around the world for Christ via broadcast media, especially radio. Received in June each year, the offering provides funding for program production, airtime, and follow-up materials. Holiness programming, delivered by radio, television, and the Internet, reaches around the world with the message of Jesus and his redeeming love and helps to disciple those who respond.

 


 L.I.N.K.S.

Loving, Interesting, Nazarenes, Knowing, and Sharing

The LINKS program in 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 fiels of service. Typically, churches send packages, cash gifts, cards, and other remembrances to their LINKS missionaries.

 


 Missionary Health Care

The cost of keeping missionaries healthy so they can do their jobs is quite high, and to help defray those costs, the Nazarene Missions International developed the NMI Missionary Health Care. It helps pay for the medical expenses of Nazarene Missionaries and accounts for about 25% of the total medical expenses. There are several ways that Nazarene's raise the money for Missionary Health Care. The money comes from local Nazarene Churches through Distinguished Service Awards, Memorial Rolls, Gifts from the Heart, or plate offerings.
