Oakdale Family Church of the Nazarene
We were so excited to visit our friends Pastor Chelsea and Pastor Jeremy Peugh! Chelsea and I have worked in the Southwest Field NYI for around two years! Their kids were awesome too! We got to tour the town of Oakdale, get Dutch Bros. Coffee and visit the longest covered bridge west of the Mississippi, the Knight’s Ferry Bridge. The people we met at OFC Naz were amazing and we cannot wait to come back!
Fresno First Church of the Nazarene
On our way home from Oakdale, we stopped at another NYI friend’s church! Pastor Chris Archer is the Elevate Coordinator for the Southwest Field. We were able to record a service for Fresno First, and just connect with a dear friend. It do not take for granted the opportunity to connect with so many pastors in the Church of the Nazarene. We are excited to return and share more stories with Fresno First!
College Avenue Church of the Nazarene
So many things to say about this wonderful church! I have known Pastor Jason for many years and he has continually been a champion for our district NYI, missions and especially Work & Witness. Pastor Josh is a wonderful friend and youth pastor colleague as well, and we had a wonderful time. We are so blessed to share our story and our calling with churches on our district, which truly feel like family!
