Assembly donates more than $100,000 for refugee support

by | 28 Jun, 2017

More than US$100,000 will be donated to Nazarene Compassionate Ministries for refugee support as a result of global Nazarenes’ generosity at the 2017 General Assembly.

Offerings were received during each of the event’s five worship services both online at nazarene.org/give-ga and in person. Donations and pledges were also accepted during the plenary sessions. The goal for General Assembly was to receive at least $250,000. The Board of General Superintendents stated anything over that goal would be given to NCM.

The total amount raised as of Tuesday evening was $365,172, helped in part by donors who agreed to match $50,000 if the assembly could top the event goal by $50,000. Observers at the Assembly plenaries also offered pledges. The BGS was elated to announce more than $100,000 would be given to refugee support through NCM.

Nazarene Compassionate Ministries works through local Nazarene churches in the Middle East and Europe to assist refugees by providing food and household supplies, as well as medical care, help with resettlement, relational support, children’s education, English classes, and additional aid.
