From its very inception, in 2009, the development of the Nazarene Strengths Institute has been a grass-roots movement both within the Nazarene church and beyond. District Leadership, church administrators, pastors, and educators – as well as Gallup, Inc. – have partnered together to foster strengths-based leadership, deliver training events, present insightful research data, and offer helpful resources.

The NSI is made up of a network of five regional centers located at Nazarene colleges/universities throughout the USA/Canada and globally. These centers work to:

  • Provide active support to any individual, church, school or business wanting to increase their knowledge of what people do best in order to build engagement, hope, and well-being
  • Facilitate training opportunities from introductory summits through team building events in order to raise awareness of individual strengths and facilitate high-performance teams
  • Provide strengths resources including books, inventory codes, a central portal, and knowledgeable consultants and trainers
  • Maintain an active partnership with Gallup, Inc.
