Each September, Nazarenes who are passionate about Work and Witness and missions, gather together from across the United States at Regional Work and Witness Conferences.
This year the conferences are being held at Ellicott City, Maryland (Eastern), Portland, Oregon (Northwest), and Gahanna, Ohio (East Central).
Todd and Connie Aebischer (Asia-Pacific Regional Work and Witness Coordinators) are currently in the states, representing the region and sharing the priority Work and Witness projects of the fields at the three conferences.
“This has been an incredibly uplifting experience,” said Todd. “It is a real blessing to see so many Nazarenes from across the USA who are passionate about being the tangible hands and feet of Christ through serving in short-terms missions.”
Dr. Jesse Middendorf (General Superintendent Emeritus) was the keynote speaker at the Eastern Conference. Dr. Verne Ward (Global Mission Director) was keynote at the Northwest Conference, and Samuel Yangmi (global missionary to Thailand) will be the special guest at the East Central Conference, the last of the three conferences, which will be held September 26-27th.
Please continue to pray that God will move on the hearts of those who have participated in the first two conferences and for those who will be participating in the upcoming East Central Conference.
