  • Call & Response, Thoughts on Church Planting: Addition or Multiplication?

    addition-or-multiplicationAn African proverb declares, “In the desert there is one crime worse than murder: to know where the water is and not tell others.” Life-giving water has been placed in our hands. Jesus put it no less directly when he said, “From everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required.”

  • Not What I Planned On: A Pastor’s Thoughts on the Difficult Intersection of Urban and Bi-Vocational Ministry

    not-what-i-planned-onIn referring to his particular church in Los Angeles, as well as Church of the Nazarene buildings in general, Phineas Bresee once said, "We want places so plain that every board will say welcome to the poorest."1 Statements like this are what first attracted me to the Church of the Nazarene.

  • 100 Years Since Bresee's Call to Evangelism

    100-yearsA century after his death, John Wesley’s influence on Methodism had waned. Phineas F. Bresee sensed the impetus for the Church of the Nazarene in 1895, in large part due to this loss. We are now approaching this same century point since the loss of Bresee's influence on the Church of the Nazarene (he died in 1915).

  • My Journey into the Church of the Nazarene

    I grew up across the street from a small Nazarene church, which years later I learned was struggling to survive. As a Roman Catholic kid, the little Nazarene church was just one of many in my city. When I finally walked into a Nazarene church, I was a 19-year-old college sophomore at my best friend’s wedding. I was present because my friend was marrying a Nazarene; he was Roman Catholic too.
