Dr. Tom Nees is widely recognized as the one who led the way in renewing the Church of the Nazarene’s understanding of its call to minister to and among those in need through the development of the Community of Hope in Washington D.C. Dr. Nees later served as Director of Mission Strategy for the Church of the Nazarene in the United States and Canada and as adjunct faculty for NTS, teaching urban ministry courses. The Nees lectureship and Nees Social Justice Award was made possible by NTS alumnus, Jim Copple, in 2008.
