As of September 15 2008, the Church of the Nazarene is operating its administrative offices for worldwide ministries from the Global Ministry Center (GMC) in Lenexa, Kansas.
At approximately 109,000 square feet, the two-story GMC is located on 38 acres and functions as an administrative hub in supporting Nazarene personnel, churches, missions, and ministries around the world. The concept was to have the facility completed this fall in conjunction with the denomination's Centennial, which is being celebrated around the world on Sunday, October 5.
A key purpose of the GMC is to function as a collaborative and flexible environment allowing staff and visitors various means of communicating around issues important to the church's ministries and administrative needs. The property that operated as the Church of the Nazarene International Headquarters previously is a multi-acre complex in Kansas City, Missouri, with three office buildings, the first of which was built in the 1950s.
After considerable research, prayer, and professional guidance, the General Board voted in 2005 for the relocation. The decision was made under the direction of the Board of General Superintendents and the General Board Executive Committee.
