NCMI provides capacity building, technical assistance, volunteer recruitment, and resource development for the thousands of Compassionate Churches; 180 local faith-based (501)(c)(3) nonprofits affiliated with the Church of the Nazarene located across the United States, known as Compassionate Ministry Centers, (CMC), and the nine colleges and universities that make up the Nazarene Higher Education System.
