Nazarene Missions International (NMI) is the support system for the worldwide work of the Church of the Nazarene. Every church of the Nazarene is part of that system, and by pooling our resources we are able to accomplish far more than our size would suggest. NMI support includes awareness, prayer support, financial contributions, missions, reading and studying, connections with missionaries, volunteer mission trips, and much more. A major part of this support is our Faith Promise giving to the World Evangelism Fund of the denomination, but also includes periodic support of local agencies as well. Lakeholm has always been very mission-minded and has been generous in providing financial support through many different avenues.
Lakeholm's missions organization joins Nazarene churches around the world to accomplish what we could not do on our own. It is amazing what we can do collectively. Currently, we are active in 159 countries, and 27 of those countries are not welcoming to the Christian message. If you have questions and are interested in becoming involved in missions work at Lakeholm, contact our NMI President, Lynda Small at firstname.lastname@example.org

Get a glimpse of what is going on around the world by reading the three short missions books:
EuNC on Mission by Klaus Arnold
The story of European Nazarene College (EuNC) is like ripples on the water when a change transforms the still waters to waves that move ever outward. The changes that have occurred in EuNC have created a significant ripple-effect, circles of holy influence, carrying the best of EuNC to the furthest points of its educational region. As you will discover, what began as one school for many nations has become one school in many nations.
ospel Over the Andes by Roger Winans, Edited by R. Alfred Swain Gospel Over the Andes, originally written by Roger Winans, is a moving story of a missionary who would not forsake his calling.
This book is an expansion of the story of the Church of the Nazarene in Peru, updated by R. Alfred Swain, a missionary who followed in the footsteps of Roger Winans. Swain brings the story of the Church of the Nazarene up to date, and demonstrates that Christ over the Andes continues to be the call and practice of the Church of the Nazarene in Peru.
The Greening by R. Franklin Cook and Steve Weber R. Franklin Cook and Steve Weber, original authors of The Greening, have revisited the original text and brought it up to date with the amazing developments in Nazarene Compassionate Ministries in recent years.
So many participate in compassionate ministries through local churches around the world and through faithfully supporting NCM, making it possible to do the seemingly impossible in a world continually faced with disasters and challenges to human dignity. Thank you for the part you play in GREENING!
