District Initiatives

 For over 100 years the Church of the Nazarene has had ministry presence in the Upstate NY region. It is hard to quantify the impact of each church, each pastor, each member through the last century, but we know that lives have been changed and communities impacted for God's Kingdom. We praise God for this!

 Today we stand at a crossroads. The world is changing and the church needs to think about new approaches to reach our changing culture and communities. Below is a 40 minute video presentation that Pastor Olivia made to the Upstate pastors at the 2021 Pastor's Retreat. The research provided is helpful to set the context for the two initiatives on the right.
