Distinguished Service Award


The Distinguished Service Award (DSA) is a tribute to church people who are living and for their service to the church. Although the DSA is given through NMI, it need not be given in the area of missions. A church may wish to honor anyone in the church for their efforts. Note: The DSA may only be given by a church or a group within the church. Individuals may not give this award.
The cost of the DSA is $125 (U.S.). Reprints of DSAs are $25 each. The DSA certificates are printed in black and gray on fine white paper, with touches of gold foil to enhance the look of the certificate.



Churches are encouraged to frame the DSA. The DSA certificates fit into an 8"x10" standard sized frame. A black or gold tone frame looks especially nice.
