We want to #ENGAGE the world for Jesus! To live like Jesus includes doing the things Jesus has commissioned us to do. We want everyone to know the transforming power of Jesus! Below are just a few of the many ways that we are involved in that engagement.
Our church family has a long history of being vitally invested in world missions. We are committed to the work of Nazarene missions and other mission organizations around the world. You will quickly find as you worship at Mackey that the call to missions support is a part of our culture. We have several special opportunities to give financially to various missions offerings.
Jesus Film Harvest Partners is a ministry inside the Nazarene church that helps to facilitate the showing of the Jesus Film to spread the gospel around the world. We at Mackey Nazarene believe that this is one of the most effective evangelism tools today. From our church we are the full support of two Jesus Film teams. These teams spend ten months of the year going from town to town sharing the gospel through the Jesus Film and then discipling new believers. If you would like more information about Jesus Film Harvest Partners please visit www.jfhp.org.
Work and Witness Trips
Work and Witness is a short term missions opportunity through the Nazarene church. We regularly have groups of people from our church family travel around the country and around the world to #Engage in the name of Jesus. If you are looking for opportunities to go on short term missions trips Mackey Nazarene is a place that will connect you with the opportunity to go.
Matthew 25 is very clear in teaching us that our ministry to the poor is an obvious fruit of a vibrant relationship with Christ. Mackey Church of the Nazarene is a major partner in a feeding program to less fortunate children in East Gibson. We are able to provide them with meals every weekend that go home from school. This ministry is always looking for volunteers to help pack the backpacks and organize.
At the beginning of every summer Mackey Church of the Nazarene hosts it’s annual Summer Kickoff. This event is a free event to the community and is a festival that offers music, games, food and prizes. This event continues to grow every year and is an exciting chance for Mackey Church of the Nazarene to meet and connect with the local community.
A heart that seeks God is a heart that is generous. There are many opportunities we take to care for those in financial need throughout any given year. We take seriously God's call to #Engage the world by ministering to the spirit, soul, &amp; body! If you would like to participate in ministry through our local church you can also give online to Mackey Church of the Nazarene. For more information follow this link.
Starting New Churches and Sites for Worship
We do not wish to be limited geographically to what we can do in service to the Lord. For that reason we have committed to expanding where we can reach people for Christ. Sometimes that means we need to send people out with resources to start a new church or have opportunities for worship and ministry in other areas.
