Northwest District Project 2023-2024: Rio Grande Valley

Our first Work & Witness team traveled to the Rio Grande Valley June 25 – July 2, 2022. 

Watch this video made by the Leavenworth Church about the trip.

The Rio Grande Valley is home to 1.3 million people and the culture is heavily influenced by the Mexican people and heritage. There is an ancient African proverb that says, “When elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers.” As governments argue over the movement of people along our southern border, it is people who suffer, people who have become our neighbors, people for whom the local churches feel compelled to minister to.  

Rio Grande Valley Work & Witness Trip - March 2023 

Recently, a team from our district participated in a W&W project in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV), as part of our current district project. Three churches were represented on this team: Leavenworth, St. Maries and Ritzville. John and Brenda Reagan from Leavenworth went down early in their RV and helped supervise the projects. This team participated in or completed several projects and continued to establish relationships within the local church, and within the local community. You will hear more about this project at our upcoming convention in Yakima.

Mission Resources for the local church

Nazarenes everywhere are sharing the missions stories of the church. Telling the story instills passion for missions. When Christ's followers know what is at stake and hear how others are obeying God's call to missions, they are challenged to participate as well. NMI is committed to helping local churches tell the missions story. We provide resources and support for the local church as it informs and educates its members, not only in what other Nazarenes are doing in missions, but how they can get involved, too. For more information, visit these links:
