The Church of the Nazarene has been a church that believes in living a holy life as well as living the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). This Great Commission is where Jesus instructs us to spread His word and teach His commands to the world. We accomplish this through Nazarene Missions International (NMI). World Missions continue to be an integral part of the work of the WCN.
Work & Witness Opportunities
Each year WCN is blessed with the ability to assemble various missional teams that travel to different locations in the world. Over the past three years we have visited, Ukraine (2018), Cuba (2017), El Salvador/Guatemala (2016), Haiti (2015), & Papua New Guinea (2015).
If you are interested in seeing mission work first hand then a Work and Witness trip would be the perfect opportunity. Your life will be blessed!
Upcoming Mission Opportunities
Nazarene Child Sponsorship exists to advocate for children who are destitute. Nazarene Child Sponsorship is part of Nazarene Compassionate Ministries. An individual, family, or group may commit to provide $25/month support. This investment will help with development through education, health, nutrition, social skills, and Christian training that will assist your child in growing into self-sustaining adults. Sponsors are given the child?s picture and are encouraged to pray faithfully and write letters to the child. Prayerfully consider this opportunity. More information is available at the missions table in the foyer.
