2024: NorthEast IN Church of the Nazarene

Blessing Our Community

We are blessing our communities to meet people where they are because Christ has called us to go.

OUR “WHY”

Blessing Our Community is the Missional Church mobilizing outside the walls of the church, making a positive impact in their community and sharing the Good News of Christ with them.

OUR “WHAT”

What is the N.E.I. CoRe Team?

The N.E.I. CoRe Team is a group of dedicated ministry practitioners who are commited to developing healthy faith-communities.
Participants will gain practical skills around the four areas that make up the Cycle of Resurgance. These skills will directly impact churches who may be feeling stalled out. This learning community will benefit its members in the following ways: 

  • Access to N.E.I. Blessing Our Community grants (changing yearly based on the COTN focus). 

  • Access to personalized coaching targeting CoRe commitments. 

  • Quarterly book/resource/tool 

  • Cohort conversations (monthly calls) with likeminded individuals who are part of the program. 

This is an opportunity for those who are ready to pursue next-level ministry dreams with their church by providing resourcing, support, education, and coaching. 

NEI Core Team Members must apply to be part of CoRe and are committing to working team objectives for one year.
