Queen City Mission: The Church of the Nazarene’s Assessment of Their Cincinnati Churches

Queen City Mission: The Church of the Nazarene’s Assessment of Their Cincinnati Churches:
“It is good to see a mainline denomination honestly ask, ‘What will it take to adapt to a shifting cultural context?'”

Full report here.

From the report:

Many churches of the Cincinnati area have compassionate ministries in the form of food pantries, clothing depositories, and resources to help in finding housing, and emergency help. However, in reference to taking a strong sense of mission to urban areas, the district churches tend to be very supportive in money and material gifts but there is a definite lack of committed personnel and a reluctance of many of the individual members to get personally involved.

In summary then, one finds that each district is actively involved in urban mission in its largest city. All the districts had other urban areas of smaller size to which they were directing attention also. However, in the large cities in Ohio there have been Nazarene churches established for many years. Many have moved away from the present inner cities which leaves a mission field for each district.

Go Nazerenes! I’m glad folks are asking these questions. I know others are as well, it just isn’t well publicized. Its the doing of the assessment that makes the rub. Its the living that gets us everytime…..
