Opportunities

Work & Witness  

The most basic building block of God's Kingdom is prayer. But often practical help is needed, too. The Church of the Nazarene offers various ways of getting involved personally. You can serve together with a Work & Witness team from your church or district for a one- to three-week period in construction or medical work (for opportunities in South Asia, see below). If you'd like to experience the JESUS Film ministry first-hand you can join a JESUS Film Ministry Trip where you will take a new set of video projection equipment to a JESUS Film team and assist them for a week. Finally, you can also go alone as a Nazarene in Volunteer Service (now Mission Corps) and dedicate 90 days or up to two years of your life to missions and serve where needed—in a field office, hospital, school, or wherever you and your skills fit best.

To find a Work & Witness opportunity, select the country of your choice. Not all countries have regular opportunities for Work & Witness teams, often for security reasons.
For more information on any of the projects listed below, please contact the South Asia Work & Witness Coordinator, Rich Crow (rbcrow_sa@yahoo.com).

Ministry centres, as mentioned below, serve as a home for child development, vocational training, health care and education, and for sharing the Good News and worshipping the Lord. They are a direct reflection of Jesus reaching out to people through teaching, preaching, and healing people (Matthew 4:23). As they vary greatly in sizes, construction costs often differ considerably.
