The Alabaster Offering provides funds for property and buildings around the world. While we understand the church consists of the people of God and not a building, buildings erected for the purpose of ministry help provide a sense of permanence, functionally enhance ministry efforts, and convey an attitude that the Church of the Nazarene intends to "put down roots." Alabaster funds help provide land for many Work & Witness projects, and the entire Alabaster Offering goes toward the purchase of land and construction of churches, schools, medical facilities, and homes for missionaries and national workers






Reverend Manuel and Reverend Lydia Lima are currently our assigned LINKS missionaries. They live in Sao Paulo, Brazil where Manuel serves as national director of the sub-region Brazil and travels at least 15 days each month. Lydia assists with literature translation & discipling at the Center for Missionary Formation (CFM).
