South Carolina District NMI is pleased to announce that we are participating in Love Your Neighbor – the Global Work and Witness effort to take place during General Assembly 2023.  There are two opportunities for South Carolina Nazarenes to be involved:
Love Your Neighbor, Indianapolis!
June 9-14, 2023
We will soon start taking applications for a district team to go to Indianapolis during General Assembly and participate with Nazarenes from around the globe in projects of compassion and evangelism.
You don’t have to be a delegate to General Assembly/Conventions to join this Work and Witness team.  (Delegates may sign up for one-day involvement on the Love Your Neighbor website.)  If you are travelling with a delegate, you can be a part of the SC work and Witness team.  You will also be able to attend the evening and Sunday services with thousands of Nazarenes from around the globe!
Cost of the project is only $490!  That includes your lodging, meals, and project funds.  Housing is limited, so we need to form our team quickly.  If you are providing your own lodging, the cost is only $300.  You are responsible for your won travel.
Rev. Travis Yarborough of Spartanburg First is leading our team, and he will soon publish registration materials.
