Engaging children and youth is one of the five areas of impacts in NMI. NMI continues to encourage churches to involve children and youth in all missions endeavors and to nurture them as they seek to respond to God’s call. NMI encourages every church, every district to be intentional and encourage and engage every child, every youth in the mission of God in your community and around the world. NMI continues to encourage churches to involve children and youth in all missions endeavors and to nurture them as they seek to respond to God’s call. We encourage collaboration with Nazarene Youth International and Sunday School Discipleship Ministries to best engage all ages of the church. We believe nurturing and leadership development is best done in the local church and individualized to the needs of each person.
