LINKS

2019-2022

What is LINKS?

 

The LINKS program of the 5th Impact area of NMI, Care & Connection is designed to network personal connections between Nazarene servants around the world. Servant as are assigned to districts and, then on the district level, connect to local churches. This gives each church an opportunity to become personally acquainted with the family and their field of service.  NCO recommends each church submit the minimum contribution listed for their church as an annual Cash LINKS to Global Treasury Services by December 31, churches send packages, cash gifts, cards, and other remembrances to their LINKS servants for birthdays and anniversaries or whenever the Lords leads.

 

 

Various publications such as Holiness Today, Reflecting God and a small bonus is provided to our LINKS missionaries as well as ALL eligible missionaries through Missionary Christmas Fund  via your SEPARATE contribution to a Global Mission FUND via Global Treasury Services. NCO recommends your church contribution to the Missionary Christmas Fund be equal to whatever your minimum LINKS cash allocation. Since the Missionary Christmas Fund is part of the Global Mission Fund, no missionary names should be included in the memo line, simply label it as Missionary Christmas Fund. The Missionary Christmas Fund is an approved 10 % mission special.   
Churches who connect with their LINKS feel a sense of involvement with the global mission enterprise of the church through regular correspondence from the missionaries, updates from their field, and even through deputation services while the missionaries are on home assignment. The missionaries are encouraged, knowing people care and pray for them. The relationships built over time personalize names and faces that both the missionaries and their LINKS churches value highly.

Contact your church's LINKS missionaries regularly (at least two or three times a year). Missionaries love to receive cards and notes; however, don't expect a reply to every correspondence. The missionaries are encouraged, knowing people care and pray for them. 

When sending money to the Global Treasury Services, it cannot be credited properly without the missionary's name. Each time you send a monetary gift, notify the recipient beforehand:
