The Church of the Nazarene announced the following retiring missionaries during a meeting of the 97th Session of the General Board 28 February 2021, which was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Members of the Board of General Superintendents and the General Board congratulated the retiring missionaries in a virtual reception. In addition, Global Missions has worked with the missionaries’ home churches to coordinate an in-person celebration, including the presentation of a sculpture as a token of the denomination’s thanks.

Global Missions, under the direction of Verne Ward III, would like to express its deep love and appreciation to all eight couples for their many years of selfless dedication to God, the church, and all of those whose lives have been impacted by their ministry. As individuals, they have given a combined 414 years of service to God through the Church of the Nazarene.
