Cover: The Emmaus Model

FROM THE FOREWORD

The mission of the Church of the Nazarene is “To Make Christlike Disciples in the Nations”. Old paradigms and practices are changing. The church is growing rapidly in some world areas, often with a lack of sufficiently trained leaders to insure orthodoxy and coherency. To be more effective in this mission to which God calls us, this book provides a practical way whereby we can rethink our models and methods of education and ministerial preparation for the purpose of equipping God’s people for works of service that his body might be built up.

The “Office of the Ministry” for the Church of the Nazarene articulates the approach to ministerial development as moving along two rails.
