Jesus called his disciples to follow him. Our mission is to make Christ-like disciples in the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads to every nation. Nazarenes are involved in a variety of ministries with a singular focus – to make Christ-like disciples. Here are some of the ways Nazarenes are involved in ministry:
Ushers / Greeters
The Usher/Greeter team fills an important role. They are involved in helping people as they enter worship, ensuring the safety of the building during worship services, assisting visitors, answering questions, providing direction, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.
Media & Technology
media to spread the gospel is a privilege. In an age of widespread technology,
we are called to use these tools for kingdom purposes. Our worship services
including Pastor Buddy’s sermons are uploaded to our website in video format.
We also maintain an active Facebook feed text messaging service for additional
are always praying for people who are gifted and want to serve in this ministry.
We offer refreshments at every service and are thankful to those who prepare
them and clean up afterwards. If hospitality is one of your spiritual gifts, we
would invite you to join this ministry.
SAMS – Senior Adult Ministry
This is a fellowship of believers (50+ years) who minister in Bible studies and fellowship with food, fun and games.
Stephen Ministry is a ministry in which trained and supervised lay people, called “Stephen Ministers,” provide one-to-one Christian care to individuals facing life challenges or difficulties.
The Church of The Nazarene is involved in spreading God’s kingdom around the world. As part of a global church, we are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers.
Children and Youth Ministry
We offer age-appropriate ministry to children and youth. This includes teaching during our worship time as well as fellowship activities. If ministering to children and youth is your calling, we invite you to join our team.
Every day we praise and worship through His Word, in prayer and fellowship, in our occupation, and importantly, corporately at church. How we present ourselves each day will prepare us in God-honoring praise and worship on Sunday and is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in administration, media presentation, our music, and drama ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. These volunteers are an important part of the Worship ministry at Montrose First Church of The Nazarene, using their heart as a worshiper first, then talents and gifts to glorify God.
