Care & Connection

The Care and Connection Program of the Church of the Nazarene 

Is a network of personal connections between missionaries and Nazarenes around the world. Missionaries are assigned to districts and, then on the district level, connected to local churches. This gives each church an opportunity to become personally acquainted with the missionary family and their field of service. Typically, churches send cards, cash gifts, packages, and other remembrances to their Care & Connections Missionaries. 
In return, the churches 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 Care & Connecti​ons churches value highly.

You could find more information about the Church of the Nazarene Links Program by visiting the NMI Care & Connections page.

What was once called LINKS is now Care and Connection


We are so excited to embark on this new journey of Care and Connection of missionariesandco-labor with them in our prayers, love, and giving.

Please help us to love and care for our missionaries including our new Global MissionaryDanielle Miller. We praise God for the work they are all doing for God’s glory.

With the change of Care and Connections running with the Calendar year, we are refocusingour efforts to bless our missionaries while blessing them even more.

Your new list is up and running and as you can see, we have stopped separating C&C from ourChristmas offering and are combining the two. You will only have one amount to send as yourcare and connection giving.
