One of six Global Mission regions in the Church of the Nazarene denomination, Eurasia encompasses 93 sovereign nations or distinct areas across Europe, the Middle East, South Asia, North Africa, and the CIS.
This highly diverse region, home of major religions such as Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Christianity, provides great challenges in presenting the clear message of Christ in our Wesleyan Holiness Christian tradition.
From the first mission field in the Church of the Nazarene, India, begun in 1898, to the newest fields in Moldova and Norway, we offer medical services, food and clothing for the economically disadvantaged, relief for refugees from wars and ethnic cleansing as well as natural disasters, education at all levels, and spiritual nurturing through the work of more than 8,000 local churches.
The ministry is holistic, meeting people's physical and emotional needs so they will be receptive to hearing the ultimate answer to life's demands, Jesus Christ.
Find out how you can personally be involved in supporting the transformative ministry in the Eurasia Region, and to learn about the exciting things God is doing here!
