Registering your Organic Church as a Church Type Mission (CTM) with the International Church of the Nazarene
By registering as a CTM with the International Church of the Nazarene you become part of a movement that is changing our world. Together, we are accomplishing more than any one congregation can accomplish alone. We support Nazarene Churches and missional work in 156 countries. www.nazareneglobalmission.org/
To register as a Church Type Mission (CTM) fill out the on-line Registration Form below and hit the submit button. The completed form will be transmitted to the Global Ministry Center of the Church of the Nazarene www.nazarene.org for processing.
The USA/Canada Church of the Nazarene www.usamission.org/ is organized into 80 geographical districts www.usamission.org/DistrictSites/tabid/139/Default.aspx supported by a District Superintendent. The newly registered CTM may become part of either the geographical district where they are physically located or the district where their Sponsor church is located if the CTM chooses to be identified on the registration form as a “Parent Affiliated Congregation.”
After consultation with the appropriate District Superintendent(s) or Parent Church Pastor in the case of a Parent Affiliated Congregation (PAC), the newly registered CTM will be assigned a unique church identification number and become a 501c3 subsidiary of the International Church of the Nazarene able to receive contributions and give tax receipts.
Leaders interested in ministerial licensing and ordination may apply through the appropriate district office and may avail themselves of a network of educational institutions from on-line certificate level through seminary level, http://nazarenepastor.org/clergyeducation/
Leaders of a registered Nazarene CTM who are properly licensed or ordained are eligible for benefits through Pensions and Benefits, www.pbusa.org.
A newly registered CTM will be contacted by the Nazarene Publishing House (NPH) www.nph.com to select from a list of free resources/books. A new CTM is automatically eligible to open a 30 day account with NPH.
A registered CTM may receive support e-mails from the various ministries of the International Church of the Nazarene. Approximately 25 helpful e-publications are available by subscribing at www.nazarene.org/Subscriber.aspx.
