Engage magazine is the Nazarene Global Mission publication online. We exist to help Nazarenes in every region to share with brothers and sisters what God is doing in His mission around the world. We specialize in feature content, including profiles of mission workers, compelling testimonies of believers reached through Nazarene efforts, examination of Nazarene mission strategies, photo essays, Q&As, mission video stories and more.
We are conscious of how powerful, compelling stories of transformation and redemption encourage and inspire believers to get more involved in God’s mission by praying, giving and going. We believe that telling the story is a mission critical endeavor, and making space for people to share their own stories in their own voices is part of that effort.
