Welcome to Adult Ministries! Through this ministry we can see the lives of men and women transformed by the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. This ministry gives special attention to the needs of women and men over 24 years old and married couples even if they are younger than 24.
The mission of Adult Ministries is to fulfill the Great Commission, guiding people to live holy lives. In agreement with Jesus Christ, the process of making disciples is a mandate that all of us should fulfill:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20NASB)
This is what we should do as a church. Our various gifts should pour into ministries that connect us with others and help us to guide many people to salvation in Jesus Christ. Through the different adult ministries we seek to grow in spiritual maturity, to be more like Christ with support and mutual edification in the church of the Lord. Evangelism, a fundamental component when we are looking to put our faith in action to fulfill the Great Commission, is also included in this area.
Among the ministries among adults we have:
Sunday School Classes: Adult education is central in the Great Commission. Jesus commanded us to “teach everything that He taught.” We should have a place where people know the Bible and how its teaching is applied to their lives. This teaching should be shared in an environment where there is constant interaction with each other and Bible study is promoted.
Women’s Ministries: This ministry is dedicated to ministering, strengthening and praying for the spiritual development of each woman. The emphasis of this ministry is to teach the Word of God and guide women to find their identity in the people of God as a member of the body of Christ, to respond to the call of God to serve God and their neighbor.
Ministry to Married Couples “CAFÉ” – Casados Felices (Happily Married): CAFÉ is a ministry which seeks to help marriages find God’s plan for their lives. As the Church of the Nazarene, we understand the value of this entity created and approved by God and we are committed to serve in the rescue and strengthening of marriages. Sunday School Ministries, under Adult Ministries, is called to serve in this area in a clear and urgent way.
Men’s Ministries “VID” – Men in God’s Image: VID is a ministry dedicated to men in order to restore the image of man from a biblical perspective and together as part of the body of Christ they can find a place to develop their full potential in serving God and their neighbor. The ministry VID deals with the areas of family, friendship, intellectual development, work and spiritual life. They are also challenged to bring other men to Christ and involve them in the different ministries of the church as they all grow to the measure of “man perfected to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ”.
Senior Adult Ministries “Fullness of Life”: This ministry encompasses people from age 60 and beyond. They are people who deserve special attention because of the stage of life they are passing through. Senior Adults Ministries is a place where we provide them with spiritual help, understanding, companionship, and pastoral care.
These ministries represent a variety of resources with which we can reach adults in the different stages of their lives. Using the various talents that we have in the church we can enrich each of these tools and make them contextual in order to give attention to all of the areas of need. We take on this challenge and serve God in the valuable ministry that He has placed in our hands today.
