NMI President's Year-End Reports

Dear NMI Presidents,

 

Thank you all so very much for your service to our Lord, your church and Nazarene missions around the world. You are making a difference by encouraging your church to pray, sharing our monthly emphases, informing people of needs like Crisis Care Kits, and so much more.

 

This year our one-page end of year NMI reports are due the same day as the Pastors’ Reports – April 12, 2021.  After the 11th and final fill-in the blank question (see I told you it was short) there is a place to share stories about how your church has ministered cross-culturally either locally or internationally. It isn’t a required part of the form, but we would love to hear how God is changing lives because of your willingness to invest your time and effort in HIS ministries.

 

Once all reports are received, the information will be compiled for our district and sent to the General Church. The reports show how the Church of the Nazarene missions are impacting the world. Some incredible ministries are happening because of the Virginia District NMI.

 

The one-page report is available in several languages, please see below. If you have any questions, please check our Virginia District NMI End-of-Year Checklist. Send your completed forms to me at vanaznmi@gmail.com.

 

Thank you,

 

Robin Hatcher

VA District NMI Secretary
