A few years ago, Rev. Jay Sunberg was our district NMI convention guest speaker, so many of you may have met him.  I am thrilled that Rev. Jay and Teanna Sunberg are OUR FALL deputation speakers. 



"We witness brokenness every day across Central Europe.  To humans sold for sex, sold for labor, sold for organs, to the Roma (Gypsies), to victims of prejudice, illiteracy & poverty, to the lonely, God cries, ‘On this day, in this place, amidst this people, MY Kingdom is coming.’ We do see God’s kingdom breaking through in 11 countries where Believers dare to claim that strongholds crumble in the presence of a mighty God. Our Church is strategically planted; in Bulgaria, Albania, Kosovo, Romania, Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland to be a theological, social, and geographical grassroots arm of rescue and restoration. Jay & Teanna serve as the Field Strategy Coordinator team for Central Europe. Together with +20 missionaries & volunteers, we are your sent hands, your sent feet, and your sent heart. In each country, brave national pastors and lay people throw open the doors of the kingdom daily. This is Central Europe - average, ordinary people doing great things for God because He has called and He has empowered us. We labor for a paradoxical kingdom that is not fully here, yet already here. We live by faith. And you? Will you experience the kingdom in Central Europe with us?”

Jay and Teanna JUST moved from Bulgaria to Poland this week, so they need our prayers as they settle into this country as their home.

To help you and your faith communities, guidance was created specifically by the provincial government for places of worship. You can find this information at This guidance is currently being updated with information on safely resuming nurseries and children’s programming as well as the updated singing guidance.

infection prevention and control measures to keep your worshippers safe.

Women and girls support projects

Globally, gender inequality is both a major cause and effect of long-term poverty. When women and girls are equipped with education and practical job training skills, they lift up the well-being of their families as well as their entire communities. The ripple effect travels far beyond the individual and creates a way out of the cycle of hopelessness.
Nazarene Compassionate Ministries partners with churches around the world to support women and girls, creating ministries that help women and girls see themselves as people who are valuable, capable, and made in God’s image.

Effective online ministry

Due to such a positive response to the Effective Online Ministry course taught by Bryce Ashlin-Mayo this past August, we’ve decided to offer it again on Oct. 21, Nov. 4 & 18.  This link takes you to Eventbrite to register.


The classes are recorded and available to people who register to watch at other times if they are not able to participate in person for all 3 days.  We will also, once again, make this course available to any from your district who would like to take the course for FMC credit.


Please let me know if you have any questions or require any further information.  Any promotion you can do within your district would be appreciated.
