Douglas and Emma Solomon
Serving in Africa Indian Ocean as Sponsored Deployment | Africa
Rev. Douglas Solomon is an ordained elder in the church of the Nazarene and was ordained on the Philadelphia District April 2016. Doug grew up in the Church of the Nazarene and has always had a heart for compassionate ministries. Doug, along with his wife Emma and their son Noah served 11 years on the East Kentucky District as well as many years on his Home District.
Doug and Emma have been serving as missionaries since Sept 2016, pioneering new work on the Africa Indian Ocean Islands Field. They are establishing contacts and are involved in compassionate ministries outreach with the goal to one-day plant a church. Also in future plans is the hope to start a Child Development Center and a NCM Coffee shop to minster to the community daily plus the opportunity to provide Christian programming on the many public radio stations on the Field.
Emma is a secondary school teacher and is able to help support the family and ministry in many ways through her work.
Please pray for the Solomon family as they continue to serve on the Africa Region.
Going Where the Church is Not Yet
Today there are over 4.3 billion people who live in areas where there is little to no gospel witness. 4.3 billion people who have not heard the message of the gospel, who have never heard the name of Jesus. We believe that everyone deserves to hear. God continues to call the Church of the Nazarene to spread the message of the gospel, to preach holiness, and to bring good news to the poor all over the world. The task is enormous; far too big for anyone to do alone, but together we can go where the church is not yet and see people, communities, and nations transformed. Reaching these people begins with one step, a step of obedience and faithfulness that says yes to God’s call. Take your first step and start your journey toward serving in missions today.
