Seven weeks after Easter, on May 28 this year, most Nazarenes in our 164 world areas will celebrate Pentecost Sunday.

We will also remember the early believers who gathered in an upper room being filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4).

Discipleship has always been an important part of the Church of the Nazarene. However, the titles given to the discipleship efforts of the Church of the Nazarene are varied. During the denomination’s first two decades, discipleship was included in the General Assembly Committee on Sunday Schools. Then, discipleship was championed in the Department of Church Schools, which was organized in 1928.
