Since 1983 Nazarene Compassionate Ministries – Africa (NCM-Africa) has acted as the compassionate arm of the Church of the Nazarene, responding to the needs of hundreds of thousands people with the help of partners as well as compassionate individuals and organizations worldwide. Driven by vision, NCM acts as the bridge between those in need and those prompted to help - transforming lives, bringing hope, and giving new opportunities.

NCM-Africa has been instrumental in mobilizing resources and developing initiatives to respond compassionately to the most needy people in the marginal and poor rural and urban communities of Africa.

Throughout 36 countries where the Church of the Nazarene is ministering in Sub-Saharan Africa, NCM-Africa has developed projects such as community based health care, education and nutrition for children, agricultural training, disaster response, and HIV/AIDS prevention and outreach programmes. Through NCM, the Church of the Nazarene tangibly demonstrates the love of Christ – developing and promoting a compassionate lifestyle in those with whom we serve.
