Cultivate 2016 is coming on November 12th at the campus of Olivet Nazarene University. Cultivate is an annual one-day training and resourcing event for every pastor, church board member, NMI/NYI/SDMI member, and leaders in every area of the life of the church.
The NMI council will be presenting several workshops during Cultivate.

The CCD is invited to the La Finca Church of the Nazarene dedication service on December 4th in Costa Rica.
This is an immensely special event with 1000-1500 people are coming from all across Costa Rica, the US, and the Mesoamerica Region to celebrate with Pastor Johnny Calvo and the Poas congregation.
This is a building project a long time in the making -- 15 years since the land was purchased, and 6 years of construction -- and the church is so excited and hugely grateful!
The many stories they can recite of sacrificial giving, of God's providential and timely blessings, of Work & Witness participation and support, and of hard work and even more hard work, is an incredible testimony to the greatness of Pastor Johnny's vision and the faithfulness of Tico Nazarenes to accomplish it.
