Why Discipleship Ministries?
At the very heart of congregational life in the church, discipleship plays a vital role in fulfilling the mission of the Church of the Nazarene to make Christlike disciples in all the nations.
The mission of Discipleship Ministries is to carry out the Great Commission to children, youth, and adults in preparation for a lifetime of being and making Christlike disciples in all the nations.
To be a people of prayer, engaged in the Word, making Christlike disciples. To intentionally develop relationships with unreached people so that they become Christlike disciples. To teach the Word of God to children, youth, and adults so that they are saved, sanctified, and maturing in Christian experience that results in a life of compassion, evangelism, Christian education, and disciple making. To encourage everyone to faithfully engage in ministry such as discipleship classes, Bible studies, small groups, and other disciple-making ministries.
To reach the largest number of people for Christ and the church, bringing them into fellowship, teaching the Word of God effectively, and encompassing their salvation; teaching the doctrines of the Christian faith and developing Christlike character, attitudes, and habits; helping to establish Christian homes; preparing believers for membership in the church and equipping them for appropriate Christian ministries.

Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)
Here at MOPS, we gather and support moms. We believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together, face to face. That’s why we rally women to come together and help each other through this thing called motherhood. MOPS encourages and equips moms of young children to realize their potential as mothers, women, and leaders, in relationship with Jesus, and in partnership with our church. If you are expecting, have an infant, toddler, or preschooler, come join us!
