Make Christ like Disciples in the Nations



A basic and transcendent purpose:

Evangelism (Matthew 28:19) • Discipleship (Matthew 28:19-20) • Leadership Development (Ephesians 4:11-13)

Jimmy De Gouveia
Regional Coordinator

The mission of Nazarene Youth International (NYI) is to bring young people to a dynamic life in Christ. As a team, we feel that God himself has charged us with the lives of millions of young people in South America. The three bases of ministry help us to fulfill this purpose; it should not be a “slogan” but a lifestyle.

Living the Great Commission: On the street, where the young people are living. In the plazas, where there are young people getting high on drugs. In places that no one wants to enter with a divine purpose. In the schools and universities, where humanism permeates the curriculum. The challenge is raised and God expects us to take it up. We are not alone! He promises His presence with us!
