WHAT IS NAZARENE COMPASSIONATE MINISTRIES?
Local churches are the primary avenue for Nazarenes to reach out to those in their communities. Nazarene Compassionate Ministries seeks to support churches in starting and maintaining ministry to the under-served and marginalized. We believe every church, no matter size or budget, can find ways to meet needs in their community with compassion, creativity, and the life-changing power of the Gospel.
In the United States and Canada, Nazarene Compassionate Ministries works closely with local churches, Work & Witness, Nazarene Disaster Response, and Compassionate Ministry Centers to bring compassion and healing to communities in need with the love and presence of Christ.
There are about 240 active Nazarene Compassionate Ministry Centers in the United States and Canada. If you would like to find a Compassionate Ministry Center in your area, click here. For volunteer opportunities, reach out to your local Compassionate Ministry Center.
