“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28: 19 NKJV): the mission of the Church of the Nazarene.
This year marked the 75th year of the East Ohio District. The Diamond Jubilee Anniversary was celebrated at the NMI Convention with special speaker Nina G. Gunter, former Global Director of NMI and first woman to be elected as General Superintendent of the Church of the Nazarene and now has the status of General Superintendent Emerita. It was a special time this past Church Year in meeting/hearing from Missionaries John and Sandy Cunningham, with an administrative assignment with the Jesus Film Harvest Partners, and Rev. Joseph Toguyera, DS and Missionary Brian Ketchum (Faith Promise Speakers) and our LINKS Missionaries
The CNC family is amazing as vessels that God can use to build his kingdom. Our Faith Promise goal this year was $12,000.00. At the time of this report we have reached $11, 852.01 in support of the World Evangelism Fund. PRAISE GOD!!! I believe that by the end of the church year we will have reached and exceeded our goal.
As you continue to be vessels used by God we have seen many accomplishment this Church Year. A Missionary Health Care offering was taken; EvangeHats were knitted and sent to the Jesus Film Harvest Partners to be used in spreading gospel; Work and Witness funds to the District; and funds to purchase windows to the Missions Cabin at the District Campgrounds. Also, when the need was presented this year for the School Pal Paks and Crisis Care Kits, you generously rose above and beyond to answer the call.
Both our NYI group and Children’s Department were actively involved in mission work this year by conducting local mission projects, participating in School Pal Paks, and financially supporting the East Ohio District Mission Project.
CNC continues to actively support the Guatemalans ministry in the Salem area through prayers and monthly financial support. We believe God has great things in store for this local mission.
God has certainly blessed us in helping to make Christlike Disciples in all the nations.
