Project 5K 2015
May 16, 2015
NMI is sponsoring a 5K Run/Walk to help raise $20,000 for out NMI Project
of supporting our Nazarene Schools in the Middle East
Registration fees as well as sponsors will help us meet this goal.
There are 4 Nazarene Schools in the Middle East, which provide almost 1000 children with a Christian-based education. All of our schools are located in poor neighborhoods and serve low-income families.
Nazarene schools may be some of our most important ministries in the Middle East. Many of the children come from families who live under tremendous economic and political stress and spiking inflation. This provides a venue for evangelism and spiritual formation for those who may have never heard the truth of the Gospel.
Throughout their history and during various political conflicts, these school have also sought to minister to the refugee communities by providing scholarships for refugee students. In recent years, Syrian and Iraqi refugee children have been able to attend our Nazarene schools.
This ministry does not come without cost. Our combined Michigan District Project goal of $20,000 will help with scholarships, updating technology, and science labs; repair of buildings and facilities.
