When Jesus was here on Earth He was the hands and feet of God for the world.  Now we are the hands and feet of Jesus in the world today. Jesus’ life is our example of how we should serve each other. Whether it’s on the other side of the globe (Global), or the other side of the street (Local), or some combination of the two, (Glocal - both Global and Local). That is what we want to be.

The LINKS program is a network of personal connections between missionaries and Nazarenes around the world—through prayer, correspondence, providing needed items, and remembering special times. 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.
