What do you get when you mix a hot, arid land bordering the Sahara, a population dependent on agriculture, 14 percent of children under age 5 malnourished, a lack of clean water, and the passion of a church to bring about change? The answer: the Joseph Project located in Fandane, 5 kilometers south of Mbour, Senegal, in West Africa. Through the Joseph Project, Nazarene leaders in Senegal are partnering with the Trevecca Nazarene University Urban Farm (Nashville, USA) to build a model farm in the desert of Senegal, where they can test greenhouse technology alongside improved agricultural...

“Just what do Nazarenes believe?”  Many Nazarenes are asked that question, and not everyone may feel adequately prepared to answer.The core beliefs of the Church of the Nazarene are found in the Articles of Faith from the Nazarene Manual. These articles provide the essential “glue” that binds the church into a unified and cohesive whole, regardless of race, nationality, ethnicity, gender, culture or language. Without the unifying expression of the church's beliefs as articulated in these articles, there is no reason to exist as a denomination.For those who may desire to have a quick and...

Yo crecí en un hogar cristiano y acepté a Cristo a una temprana edad. Mi padre era pastor (y todavía lo es) en la Iglesia del Nazareno, lo que significa que me vi involucrado en actividades nazarenas desde muy pequeño. Si bien yo me consideraba cristiano mientras que iba creciendo, no fue sino hasta que me encontré en la universidad que tuve un encuentro con Cristo, el cual cambió mi vida.Durante mis estudios universitariosa tuve la oportunidad de pasar las vacaciones junto con un hijo de misioneros, de Ecuador. Esa experiencia, si bien para mí sólo se trataba de unas vacaciones, me abrió los...

I grew up in a Christian home and accepted Christ at a young age. My father was and is a pastor in the Nazarene Church, which meant I have been involved in Nazarene activities from a very young age. While I considered myself a Christian growing up, it was in college I had a special encounter with Christ that changed my life.During college, I had the chance to spend the holidays with a missionary kid from Ecuador. That experience, while only a vacation for me, opened my eyes to a much bigger world that existed outside of my comfort zone in the United States. I remember telling my parents in my...

Being a missionary can often mean living in a far-off land, preaching the Word of God to a culture that’s never heard of Jesus Christ. But for Lauren and Kourtney Seaman and their family, founders of the Reach77 network in Chicago, they’re proving that sometimes being missionaries means simply walking out the front door of their home and ministering to their neighbors, coworkers, and others in the local community.The idea for Reach77, which is an organic missions network in the Chicago area, came about after the Seaman family (photo left) moved to Chicago in 2012.“We were Christians who...

What do motorcycles have to do with pastors in Costa Rica, and retirees mentoring boys in the United States? A motorcycle club at College Church of the Nazarene in Bourbonnais, Illinois, U.S. is bringing these disparate groups together in an unexpected way. It started when Ellen Steward, the recent pastor to families at College Church of the Nazarene University Avenue in Bourbonnais, Illinois, believed it was important to try to connect kids with people of different generations through apprenticeship-style experiences. She asked Floyd Hoffman, a retired layperson at the church...

Curaçao, one of the “ABC islands”–Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao—off the north coast of Venezuela, is being introduced to the Church of the Nazarene. This is a story of new beginnings, for a country, for a young pastor and his team of church planters, and for an American pastor and his local church. In 2010, the leadership of the newly-constructed Mesoamerica Region—formed out of the Mexico, Central America, and Caribbean Regions—took a hard look at itself. What they learned presented a challenge: the witness of the Church of the Nazarene was the weakest in the areas with the most...
