Where are you located?
The international office for NCM is located at the Church of the Nazarene Global Ministries Center at 17001 Prairie Star Parkway, Lenexa, Kansas 66220. However, NCM projects take place in congregations and communities around the world. Each world region has an office where programs are coordinated through regional leadership. These leaders work with a network of congregations and church leaders to live out compassion as a lifestyle.
Please direct all inquiries for child sponsorship and promotional materials to the Lenexa location.

How do you decide what compassionate projects are NCM sponsored?
Many people in the church feel God’s call to care for the poor and suffering in their neighborhood and around the world. At NCM, we believe that we are simply one way to support the work that God has already inspired in the hearts of God’s people. Not every compassionate ministry in the Church of the Nazarene is officially sponsored by NCM.
The projects that NCM works with formally are evaluated and chosen by the regional NCM coordinators and the church leaders who work in the location of the project. The priority is placed on listening to church leadership who understand each area and what the most urgent needs are.

You may also download the HIV/AIDS Guidelines for the Church of the Nazarene Constituency Worldwide (PDF) to learn more.
I would like to promote NCM in my church and community. What can I do?
There are several ways to share what God is doing through compassionate ministries around the world:

- Share about Nazarene Child Sponsorship with a friend, your family, or your congregation, and become an advocate for children living in poverty around the world.
- Learn about NCM projects and share what you learn with your Sunday School class or congregation. Be sure to include your pastor in the planning. If you are interested in receiving FREE materials to help you share about NCM, do not hesitate to call us toll free at 877-626-4145.
