From Mission to Vision to Mobilization
“God does nothing but by prayer, and everything with it.”
- John Wesley
We continue as a people that prays...
We enter into our second year with another Call to Prayer from Easter (4/9) to Pentecost (5/28). The feedback has been resounding after praying through Pentecost 2022, that we must pray again every year! Oh, the unifying effects of praying together.
We also heard from the Spirit; our church must focus on each of the elements below for our vision in the USA/Canada Region, Church of the Nazarene.
There emerged four heart-cries for the USA/Canada Region, Church of the Nazarene:
- The importance of "mobilizing all Nazarenes in unity" in the midst of a polarized world.
- The calling of our churches to engage in "blessing our communities," to get out from behind our walls to be salt and light in our culture.
- A passion for "bringing people to Jesus," especially younger generations.
- A longing for the transformation of the whole person, "becoming Christlike disciples" mobilized to make a holy, positive impact in our world.
1 Peter 4:10 (NIV)
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms.
