The NDI team will miss Dr. Scott Rainey’s leadership as NDI director. We continue to pray that God will bless him as he pastors the Huntington First Church of the Nazarene in Indiana. His contributions to NDI and the Church of the Nazarene will continue to guide us for years to come.


Now, we are looking for a new global leader for NDI. In fact, as you are reading this, it is likely that our new global NDI director has already been selected! Since February, the Global NDI Council, under the leadership of Dr. David Busic (the jurisdictional general superintendent), has been engaged in a process for finding a new global director as spelled out in the bylaws. In March, a profile was developed, based upon input from leaders across the global church. Utilizing that profile, potential candidates were received and reviewed by the Board of General Superintendents. In late April, the Global Council met with Dr. Busic to recommend three to five of the best candidates to be interviewed by the Board of General Superintendents. A ballot was then prepared by the Global Council and Dr. Busic, which was ratified by the Local Church Ministries Committee of the General Board. From this ballot, the Board of General Superintendents will elect the next NDI director.


Keep an eye out for the announcement of our new director. If you have not already received it, it will be coming soon!
