We desire to provide a safe place for youth to belong, grow and experience God's love.  Just as we want our children to grow up knowing God and His promises to us, Lombard Church of the Nazarene also places a high priority on helping nurture that faith as they grow into young adults.


Carola Llanes, NYI President

Nazarene Youth International (NYI) is the youth ministry of the Church of the Nazarene. It exists because the Church of the Nazarene believes that young people are an integral part of the Church. Because of that belief, NYI is committed to leading young people into a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ and to facilitate their growth as disciples for Christian service. It works to accomplish a threefold strategy of:

1) Evangelism, reaching young people for Christ;

2) Discipleship, equipping young people to be Christlike followers; 

3) Leadership Development, empowering young people to serve others.
