THE HALF MILLION MOBILIZATION
"Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful."
We begin to usher in a new day in the USA/Canada Region in the Church of the Nazarene.
We do this not in our own strength, but in the strength of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Do we believe God can change the trajectory of our declining churches?
Do we believe God will raise up leaders to start new churches?
Do we believe God has a place in our current culture for the Nazarene holiness message?
Of course, the answer is yes. Perhaps there has never been a better
time in the USA/Canada Region for the work of God’s church to breakthrough.
Let us join together in a time of prayer for renewal in our ministry and our churches.
Let us pray for a resurgence in the Nazarene message of hope and holiness.
“God does nothing but by prayer, and everything with it.”
- John Wesley
