Multicultural Ministries



Immigrants in the Bible… for such a time as this!


And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the children of Israel, and of the king's seed, and of the princes; Now among these were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. (Daniel 1:3,6)

Babylon conquered Jerusalem and Daniel and his three friends were carried to Babylon as captives of war.  They were forced by war to become immigrants in the land of Babylon.  As Hebrews.  Daniel and his friends had been instructed in the fear of the Lord God according to the Mosaic Law.  To read more click here.



Within the United States and Canada, there is enormous diversity. That diversity is reflected in the Church of the Nazarene. We seek to display the strength that comes from unity across different cultures. Multicultural Ministries is dedicated to resourcing the different cultures that exist within the Church of the Nazarene in the United States and Canada.

Multicultural Ministries works with our different ethnic groups within the church to train leaders and develop strategies for making Christlike disciples. We also seek to connect people with active ethnic ministries and help them to establish other active ministries in the US and Canada. There are currently 18 active multicultural ministries active in the US and Canada. They vary widely in size and scope, but they all share a thirst to share the good news of Jesus Christ in their contexts. We have collected contact information for all of our various ministries, as well as informational pages for our most active multicultural groups.
