World Evangelism Fund

What Is the World Evangelism Fund?
The World Evangelism Fund is the cooperative genius of the mission enterprise of the Church of the Nazarene. It is based on the concept that we can do more working together than could ever be done working alone.
Why do we have World Evangelism Fund?

Missions in the Church of the Nazarene is a large enterprise. To accomplish the Great Commission—spreading the gospel and the message of holiness around the world—requires money.
In this type of support, churches do not always share equally in the mission work. Larger churches are sometimes visited by more missionaries than they could possibly help, while some smaller churches are overlooked.
The World Evangelism Fund was created to allow missionaries to work more effectively and to encourage all churches to support missions.

The World Evangelism Fund goes directly toward accomplishing the mission of the Church of the Nazarene, to make Christlike disciples in the nations. The World Evangelism Fund is the funding that operates the Church of the Nazarene and its entire mission effort, from the operation of the Global Ministry Center to districts and churches around the world.
How does the World Evangelism Fund work?

Employed missionaries (excluding volunteers) in the Church of the Nazarene receive a monthly paycheck based on a standard amount plus a cost-of-living adjustment.

Missionaries also receive medical insurance (see Missionary Health Care) a pension provision, and other benefits such as housing and travel costs.
The World Evangelism Fund comes from the generosity of Nazarenes around the world.  Each church is challenged to contribute an assigned apportionment, but many, seeing the effectiveness of the world mission enterprise, choose to overpay.   
How is the World Evangelism Fund collected?

Traditionally, it has been through two large offerings a year—the Thanksgiving and Easter offerings. Some churches continue to successfully raise their entire fund this way.

Faith Promise is a plan based on mission giving at systematic intervals rather than just twice a year. Through Faith Promise, people pray about the amount they should give for missions (over and above their tithe). The amount is often given weekly, biweekly, or monthly. Over time, churches find they raise their mission support and often go over their goal through this giving plan.

The Benefits of the World Evangelism Fund

        Missionaries—The World Evangelism fund provides the strategic foundation
         and base for the work of our missionaries around the world. This funding
         allows our missionaries to expand their ministry by building upon your support.

        Churches—Regardless of size, each church has the opportunity to take part in
        the global mission endeavor. Also, just as individuals are blessed by God when
        they commit a portion of their resources for His kingdom, so churches are
        blessed when they allocate funds to help reach the lost around the world.
