The Bike-a-Thon will be held on June 2024 at the VNRC in Buckingham, VA during The Great Gathering (District Assembly/Family Camp).


Every year money is raised to help a Nazarene Compassionate Ministry Special Project. More information on how to raise money, who to give it to, and other logistics will be coming out closer to June. But for now, mark your calendars! This will be a great event!

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out. You can reach Kristen at

Do you have a future missionary in your local church? Your District NMI Council is here to help you help them follow the call.

The Mission Call Coordinator (MCC) is here to help you at the local level. If you know someone who is called, but don’t know what to do next, then call or email Kristen, and together we will foster the call. As the MCC for the District, her promise to you and the local church is to support the call, help find ways to foster the call, and mentor the perceptive missionary for a year.

    • Holistic wellness

    • Language development/mastery

    • Cultural awareness and adaptation

    • Contextualization

    • Global perspective

    • Leadership development
