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 and functionally, enhancing ministry efforts. The entire Alabaster Offering goes toward the purchase of land and construction of churches, schools, medical facilities, and homes for missionaries and national workers.
The Church of the Nazarene is in many countries where people are vulnerable to trafficking. In these areas, the church seeks to provide economic and educational opportunities to lower people's risk of being trafficked. The Church assists children, women, and orphans, as well as partnering in ministries that help people who have survived trafficking by offering rehabilitative services and skills development.
We currently reach more than 11,000 children through a one-on-one child sponsorship program and over 50,000 children through nutrition programs across six continents. We encourage you to consider sponsoring a child. If you are unable to commit to an ongoing sponsorship, consider a one-time gift that will support our ongoing ministries at Child Development Centers and foster the growth of the program by allowing us to continue support to children who are still awaiting sponsors.
The Church of the Nazarene is taking the mission of clean water seriously. From water wells, to cisterns, to water purification systems, to latrines, to hygiene and sanitation education, NCM partners with local congregations and communities to address water and sanitation issues with locally appropriate solutions.
When a disaster strikes there is an immediate need to act and funds are an essential part of a successful response. Your donation to the Global disaster Fund allows Nazarene Compassionate Ministries to be prepared to respond at any time a disaster strikes.
While the crisis appears overwhelming, future progress depends on the joint effort of everyone working together in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Nazarene Compassionate Ministries is working every day around the globe to offer support and care to those suffering from HIV/AIDS as well as the orphans and caregivers left in the wake of its destructive path.
Global Hunger is a reality Nazarene Compassionate Ministries is committed to changing. Nazarene child development centers provide meals and nutrition training for children and their families. Community gardens and sustainable agriculture programs around the globe help support children affected by HIV and AIDS and others living in poverty. Food pantries nourish families in need. And emergency food relief meets people's most basic needs when disaster strikes.
JESUS Film Harvest Partners (JFHP) is a ministry which partners with other Kingdom ministries to make Christlike disciples in the nations. JFHP is involved in evangelism, discipleship, church development, leadership training, and pastoral education. For every three dollars given, one decision is made to follow Christ.
Following the example of Jesus, we seek to clothe, shelter, feed, heal, and ultimately empower those who suffer. Because NCM exists in and through the Church, we are able to address spiritual concerns alongside physical needs. Our ministries are holistic - addressing the whole person - and sustainable - addressing immediate needs while securing a hopeful future for individuals and their communities.
The World Evangelism Fund (WEF) provides the foundation for mission giving and outreach around the world. No other financial plan invests more productively in life transformation than the WEF. Without this baseline infrastructure, no other ministry provided by designated or special mission giving can remain viable (including Nazarene Compassionate Ministries, Work & Witness, JESUS Film Harvest Partners, and Alabaster).
Taking the Gospel to the world through radio, television and internet programs. Started in 1951, World Mission Broadcast reaches even the remotest parts of the world with words of hope and holiness...and lives are changed. The cost to support one minute of air time on WMB is $4.
