Mission Connection Magazine

Mission Connection is packed with ideas from the world over. Mission Connection is a free monthly electronic publication of NMI; it is a resource exchange for NMI leaders within the local church.
Subscriptions to Mission Connection are free, and anyone may subscribe to the electronic magazine. To subscribe or unsubscribe, go to the Subscription page, enter the required information, select 'Mission Connection Magazine' in the bottom section, and click the 'Save' button.
For those mission leaders who cannot receive the magazine via e-mail, consider asking a young leader in your church to receive it and deliver it to you; request a friend, family member, or church office worker to sign up on your behalf or contact your district president to see if he or she would mail a copy to you.

Contributor's Guidelines

Mission Connection accepts short articles, drama sketches, display/bulletin board ideas, poems, and reports of activities pertaining to NMI. They should be no longer than 400 words.


  • Promotional pieces on the monthly emphases of NMI are of special interest, as well as ideas for prayer, youth, and children. Items demonstrating how NMI is promoted in all cultures are welcomed.
  • Photographs are accepted for Mission Connection. Clear color photos are preferred; however, black and white photos will be considered. Resolution must be at least 180 pixels per inch or larger photos at a lower resolution (nothing lower than 72 pixels per inch).
  • Mission Connection reserves the right to edit all material for length and in accordance with the standards of the Church of the Nazarene and NMI policy. The magazine also reserves the right to accept or reject material.
  • When quoting someone, please name the speaker/writer and the context in which that quote occurred (name of book, article, speaking engagement, etc.).
  • Because this magazine is an idea exchange, Mission Connection does not pay its writers. Name recognition will be given to individuals writing for the magazine, if it is stated on the submission.
  • The magazine is not copyrighted, so churches are encouraged to copy material from Mission Connection; therefore, the writer waives any royalty rights.
