THE NAZARENE FUND
Your support of The Nazarene Fund is used to rescue and restore persecuted Christians in the Middle East. We believe the best way to overcome evil is by doing good. Through our actions, we hope to combat darkness through our love and support of Christians and religious minorities. ISIS has used the Nazarene sign to symbolize death—we will use it to symbolize life.
We are preserving generations. We are preserving Christianity. We are preserving history.
As mandated by the founder of Mercury One, our goal is rescue 400 Christian families who have fled the genocide in Eastern Syria and the Ninevah Plain into safe, secure locations where they can practice their faith freely without fear of retribution or retaliation.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer once said, “Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” We declare, Never Again Is Now. When the Holocaust, the Rwanda Genocide, and Darfur Genocide occurred, the world stood in silence. Never Again will we remain silent. Never Again will we turn a blind eye when we see humanity suffer from the hands of others.
Taking a stand, Mercury One launched the Nazarene Fund in late August 2015 with the challenge to raise $10 million by Christmas. Generous donors helped the fund reach $13 million by December, and 149 Christians have successfully been rescued from Iraq to Slovakia.
Funds are also required for some necessary infrastructure improvements in the receiving countries and general logistical and administrative support for families in the host countries provided in installments through the first year of their resettlement. Should it become impossible or impractical to rescue families, the contributions will be used to provide additional humanitarian support in their native country.
RESCUE AND RESTORE
We Rescue by resettling Christians who are fleeing from genocide into safe, secure locations away from conflict and hostile environments. We resettle them in safe locations in their native country or relocate them to a country that is willing to host them and provide them asylum seeking status.
We Restore by providing professional assistance, aid, and support to help families recover from the trauma they may have experienced physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. We also provide them the assistance they need to find their sense of purpose and hope in the future so they can build their faith and keep their heritage for generations to come.
