NNU PARTNERS WITH NORTHWEST FIELD DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENTS

Oct 19, 2022 | News

The seven District Superintendents of the Northwest Field recently met with the Dean and two other faculty members of the College of Theology and Christian Ministries (CTCM) for a 3-day retreat in McCall, Idaho. The goal of the meeting was to discuss how the Church and University could better partner in our shared mission of making Christlike disciples. The desire of all parties is to see a renewed spiritual passion for Jesus to transform us in the Northwest.

“This time together was vital as we continue to find ways for our District Superintendents and CTCM to partner together encouraging, inspiring and equipping our churches across the Northwest Field,” noted Brent Peterson, Dean of the CTCM.

“We emerged from this meeting standing in agreement regarding our Articles of Faith, the Covenant of Christian Conduct and the Nazarene statement on Human Sexuality,” said Scott Shaw, District Superintendent of the Intermountain District. “We were drawn to the final statement of the Covenant of Chrisitan Conduct which states, ‘As the global church receives and ministers to the people of our world, the faithful outworking of these statements as congregations is complex and must be navigated with care, humility, courage and discernment.’”

“The importance of our collaboration and partnership is essential in these wonderful but challenging days of ministry,” affirmed Peterson. The District Superintendents and the CTCM faculty look forward to a continued conversation as they move forward.
