We participate in the mission of God at home and abroad through giving, education, prayer and engaging children and youth.


We are praying for and pursuing ways to minister in our neighborhoods, bringing the hope of Christ where the church is not yet.

We have been stewards of the land on the corner of East 19th and Windsor since the 1940s. Our vision is to build a sustainable church home that amplifies church ministries including dignified, affordable housing. We are hopeful that the Lord will make a way for us to embody the welcome and transformation of the Kingdom of God by meeting the needs of our community for affordable housing while providing a sustainable future for our local church in this neighbourhood.


We are engaged with Nazarene Missions International: praying, learning, supporting missionaries, and encouraging local participation–especially with children and youth.

Below are the Global Missionaries that we are particularly connected to.

These are the books we are reading this year about Nazarene Missions (Learn More)


Andrew & Jenna Stout

Andrew and Jenna began serving on the South Asia Field in 2019. In addition to supporting the local district, Andrew serves with Nazarene Compassionate Ministries, and Jenna serves with M+Power, the Eurasia Region’s missionary mobilization team.

They are confident that God continues to call His people to participate in His mission around the world, and they feel privileged to respond to God’s call to serve. They are grateful for your prayers and support.

Andrew and Jenna would love to keep in touch! To receive their newsletter, email them at astout@eurasiaregion.org or jstout@eurasiaregion.org.
