MISSIONS: Nazarene Missions International (NMI)
PURPOSE: To mobilize the church in mission through praying, discipling, giving, and educating. Nazarene Missions International (NMI) has four (4) objectives in which every local church can participate:
1.PRAYING – Interceding for leaders and churches and for the Holy Spirit to draw all people to Christ. James 5:16 Acts 2:41-42 and Matthew 28:19a-20a
2.DISCIPLING – Mentoring and involving all people, including youth and children, to make Christlike disciples in the nations. Matthew 28:19a-20a
3.GIVING – Devoting ourselves and our resources, including World Evangelism Fund, to extend Christ’s kingdom. 2 Corinthians 8:3 and 2 Corinthians 9:7
4.EDUCATING – Informing people of the world’s needs and enabling our church to meet those needs in Christ. Acts 2:41-42 and Matthew 28:19a-20a
BIRDSBORO CHURCH OF THE NAZARENE is committed to these four objectives both globally and locally. We encourage our people to see missions as all inclusive, whether that is reaching across our globe or across the street. Our local church has ways to be involved.
Some projects in which we as a church have been or will be involved:
- School supplies and backpacks collection for children in Philadelphia & Reading
- Working on renovations at a church/outreach center in Philadelphia
- Hats, scarves, and mittens collection for local ministry
More ways to be involved in local and global ministry are being planned.
Our long range ministry initiative is to Adopt-a-Church for which we are in the early planning stages. Another great way for you to be involved and make an eternal difference!
