LINKS program of the Church of the Nazarene is a network of personal
connections between missionaries and Nazarenes around the world.
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. Typically, churches send cards, cash gifts, packages, and
other remembrances to their LINKS missionaries.
In return, the churches feel a sense of involvement with the global
mission enterprise of the church through regular correspondence from the
missionaries, updates from their field, and even through deputation
services while the missionaries are on home assignment. The missionaries
are encouraged, knowing people care and pray for them. The
relationships built over time personalize names and faces that both the
missionaries and their LINKS churches value highly.
