Pastoral Renewal

 
Nazarene Church Relations at MidAmerica Nazarene University

We recognize how important it is for pastors to find time for renewal in the rhythms of ministry. That's why MNU's Church Relations department offers on-campus resources and amenities to pastors, free of charge.

Resources

The Mabee Library has an extensive collection of resources available both on the shelf and online.  A private office, access to online journals and periodicals, and a 24-hour computer lab are also available to pastors. Additionally, the Department of Bible, Theology and Mission invites visiting pastors to visit classes, engage in discussion groups, or connect with an MNU faculty member over a cup of coffee.

Restoration

MNU's chapel services, held Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during the academic year, provide a context for restoration, while Weatherby Chapel is an intimate venue for prayer and reflection. Counseling sessions are also available to help pastors grow deeper in their relationship with Christ and with others.

MNU offers this package free of cost to support the calling and ministry of pastors. If you have any questions contact us at churchrelations@mnu.edu or 913.971.3356 for reservations.
