Now, I get emails from young Nazarene ministers asking me why I left, if they should leave, where they could go, and how to leave gracefully. Before I get into my story, let me say a few things. First, I do not think my experience is in anyway normative for young Nazarene ministers.
I know plenty of friends who love and effectively serve in the CotN with support, fulfillment, and joy. Secondly, I do not think that my conversations about young ministers leaving are in any way shocking or revelatory.
This is simply my story. I hope it helps.
Who We Are
Here we go. My parents experienced Christ and conversion just before and just after I was born. We went to the Church of the Nazarene because it was the closest to our house when I was baby. When our neighborhood church was suffering, we moved to a larger CotN church in town. I felt a call to ministry at about the age of A couple years later, I was given a local license by my pastor and church. Because of a regional scholarship, my family and I decided on Northwest Nazarene University.
The scholarship worked like this: the local church would scholarship me, and the region would match it 7 times over.
My pastor would not scholarship me. However, he allowed my parents to give to the church the amount of the scholarship, and the church would then forward that money onward so that we could receive the regional scholarship. After two years at NNU, my home church felt like I should be licensed at the church that I was currently serving and worshiping at. I did not disagree with them, but I was worshiping and serving at an Evangelical Methodist Church at the time.
My local license lapsed, which was not a big deal to me. I knew that it would only set me back one year when I entered the process again, which I did in my senior year of college.As a global community of faith, we are commissioned to take the Good News of life in Jesus Christ to people everywhere and to spread the message of scriptural holiness across the lands.
The Church of the Nazarene is the largest denomination in the classical Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. The doctrine that distinguishes the Church of the Nazarene and other Wesleyan denominations from most other Christian denominations is that of entire sanctification. Nazarenes believe that God calls Christians to a life of holy living that is marked by an act of God, cleansing the heart from original sin and filling the individual with love for God and humankind.
Our Articles of faith are our foundational beliefs, and set forth the essential truths which guide every area of practice. Our Core Values are the essence of our identity and support the vision of our denomination and help shape our culture. The Board of General Superintendents and additional Church of the Nazarene leadership continues to closely monitor the spread of COVID and its impact on the church and people around the world.

General Superintendent Emeritus Eugene L.
Stowe passed away 6 April at the age of Top Title. Bottom Title. Christian discipleship is a way of life. It is the process of learning how God would have us live in the world. As we learn to live in obedience to the Word of God, in submission to the disciplines of the faith, and in accountability to one another, we begin to understand the true joy of the disciplined life and the Christian meaning of freedom.
Discipleship is not merely human effort, submitting to rules and regulations. It is the means through which the Holy Spirit gradually brings us to maturity in Christ. It is through discipleship that we become people of Christian character. The ultimate goal of discipleship is to be transformed into the likeness of Jesus Christ 2 Corinthians The Church of the Nazarene has moved over time from a church with an international presence toward a global community of believers.Due to the current health situation in our nation, we at Defiance Church of the Nazarene want all our families, staff, and friends to be healthy.
