At OVCN we are passionate about sharing the love of Christ throughout our local community and world. One of the ways we do this is through investing time and resources in local, regional, and international mission projects. Missions Ministry may be as simple as helping paint a church in South Tucson or providing food for the homeless. It might also include traveling to Honduras to show the Jesus Film to native people who have never heard the gospel or spending a week in New Orleans cleaning up after the hurricane. We are thrilled with the emphasis our congregation places on both local and worldwide mission efforts. God is moving through our church! Children and adults alike participate in the various aspects of missions. We invite you to join this ministry and get ready for the adventure God has in store for you!

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19
Missions Ministry is our church’s response to the Great Commission to make Christ-like disciples in all the nations. We become the hands and feet of Jesus as we reach out to help people in need. The Church of the Nazarene supports 750 missionaries in 258 world areas. Brand new churches are planted daily. We also support Nazarene colleges, bible schools, hospitals, and clinics all over the world. Our local church participates in Nazarene missions by sending out Work & Witness teams regionally and globally, distributing food and clothing to those in need, rebuilding churches, assisting Native American reservations, visiting orphanages, and much more. We have an exciting Missions Ministry at OVCN and look forward to having you join us!
