Newly formed Mexico Field begins restructuring

Newly formed Mexico Field begins restructuring

by | 02 Apr 2015

District superintendents and ministry coordinators from the Mexico Field gathered March 5 to 7 in Guadalajara to define a new life stage for the church in Mexico, which was consolidated into one field in November.

Participants from across the country made it clear that there aren’t two Mexicos, two visions, or two churches.

"Today we have all recognized that we are one church in Mexico, with a history that gives permanence in time," said one participant.

Some challenges for the new field include moving from a stage of ministerial stagnation to a stage of ministerial development, from a crisis of expansion and growth to a time of consolidation and support of new generations, and finding a holy way to integrate into the community.

During the meetings, participants demonstred a commitment to raise the fallen, unreservedly forgive, combine strategy, and define a single course to serve Christ as if it were their last day on earth.

Mexico Field Strategy Coordinator Jorge Cordova Valencia said he greatly appreciates the support and participation of Ararat Church of the Nazarene Pastor Hiram Vega, who provided a methodological approach to the workshops. Cordova was also thankful for the assistance of pastors, coordinators, district superintendents, and others.

“May the coming times be more fruitful and transformative results of a Mexican society that needs to receive what the Church of the Nazarene can and is able to give: Jesus as Lord of their lives,” Valencia said.
