The Nazarene Church has some incredible leaders on the Utah Mission Field. They have listened to God’s calling for them and taken up the challenge Christian Ministry presents in Utah. With less than a 3% Evangelical Christian presence, the state of Utah is different than many other states in the US which makes the ministries unique, but the leaders have found ways to persevere. This video tells their stories and how God has been using them as ministers on the mission field.

Why Church Planting
"New church planting is the only way that we can be sure we are going to increase the number of believers in a city and one of the best ways to renew the whole body of Christ. The evidence for this statement is strong–Biblically, sociologically, and historically. In the end, a lack of kingdom-mindedness may simply blind us to all this evidence. We must beware of that." -- Tim Keller
"Across Christian history for 2,000 years, church planting has been the single most effective strategy for reaching lost people with the good news of Jesus." -
