CHILD SPONSORSHIP: 

RCNAZ directly supports Child Sponsorship, a mission of the Nazarene Compassionate Ministries. Together, we are currently helping to care for the specific needs of children at the Native American Christian Academy. Your donations to NCM Child Sponsorship helps to provide children in need with school lunches, supplies, health care, clothing, gifts on their birthdays and more. Please pray for this mission. Consider making a one time gift or a monthly donation to help make a difference for our sponsor children at the Native American Christian Academy.
