As a member of the Church of the Nazarene, New Vision financially supports the global work of the denomination. Just as individual members are expected to give a tithe to their local church, New Vision gives thirteen percent of all un-designated offerings received to global ministries, district ministries, retirement benefits, and our regional educational institution, MidAmerica Nazarene University (mnu.edu).
