+ How do you decide which compassionate projects are NCM-sponsored?
Many people in the church feel God’s call to meet needs in their neighborhood and around the world. NCM resources are simply one way to support the work that God has already inspired in people’s hearts. Not every compassionate ministry in the Church of the Nazarene is officially sponsored by NCM.
The projects that NCM works with formally are evaluated and chosen by the regional NCM coordinators and the church leaders who work in the location of the project. The priority is placed on listening to church leadership who understand each area and what the most urgent needs are.

+ My church is doing the Nazarene 30 hour famine. Where do I turn in the funds?
Through the end of 2015, all funds raised through the Nazarene 30 Hour Famine should be sent to the Nazarene Compassionate Ministries. Funds will go to a World Vision and NCM partner project in Mozambique. Please send your financial forms to:
Nazarene Compassionate Ministries 30 Hour Famine Church of the Nazarene 17001 Prairie Star Parkway Lenexa, KS 66220
The Nazarene 30 Hour Famine will be an approved mission special through the end of 2015, so those funds raised will receive 10 percent giving credit.
If your church continues to participate in the Famine after 2015, you will send your donations directly to World Vision instead of Nazarene Compassionate Ministries. Those donations will be used, at the discretion of World Vision, to fund hunger relief projects; however, they will not necessarily be used to fund Nazarene field projects.
