LINKS is a network of connections between participating missionaries and Nazarene churches. The relationship gives local churches an opportunity to become personally acquainted with a missionary family and their service - this fosters involvement with the global missions enterprise across the Nazarene church. LINKS missionaries provide updates through regular correspondence and a visit when on home assignment. The church supports the missionaries with prayer, care packages, and financial gifts.
