Report of the Board of General Superintendents

In the Church of the Nazarene, the highest episcopal office is filled by the Board of General Superintendents.  -  The superintendency is the Wesleyan translation of the episcopacy.  The general superintendents have general oversight (superintendency) of the global denomination, whereas the district superintendents have oversight (superintendency) of particular districts within the denomination.

This past Sunday, the Board of General Superintendents presented their annual report to the General Board (which operates in governance between General Assemblies).  The report was titled, "Called to be Witnesses."

The report talks about the financial crisis as it has impacted the denomination.  However, it also discusses the growth of the denomination (we now stand with 2.1 million members in 156 world areas!) and points us to a vision of possibilities to which God has called us.  -  The full report can be read, here.

May God's blessings be upon the Church of the Nazarene and upon our Board of General Superintendents, as together we seek to follow our Lord in ministry making Christlike Disciples in the Nations!
