Missionaries

Following the example of Jesus, Nazarenes across the globe are living compassion every day. Local churches work to clothe, shelter, feed, heal, educate, and live in solidarity with those who suffer under oppression, injustice, violence, poverty, hunger, and disease. Angus Church is proud to support these missionaries who serve around the world.

The Grahams

(Jaron, Elizabeth & Quentin)

 
All three of us have answered a call to serve as missionaries in Hamilton, New Zealand. We serve as pastors of Crossroads Church of the Nazarene. We are helping to train and equip pastors and lay people for the New Zealand District Church of the Nazarene. Hamilton is a community of about 200,000 people on New Zealand’s north island, where only a small percentage of people participate in a church community, teen suicide rates are high, and pastoral education is limited.
 

The Schmelzenbachs

 
Harmon and Cindy Schmelzenbach serve as missionaries to the Melanesia and South Pacific fields, which currently include work in the countries of Samoa, American Samoa, The Kingdom of Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea.
Harmon has served as the field strategy coordinator since January 2009. Previously he served as the coordinator for Nazarene Maritime Ministries (the Fiji Boat Project) launched in Fiji in 2000 together with leadership development.

Dr. Erin Meier

 
I came to Papua New Guinea (PNG) through the Samaritan’s Purse Post-Residency Program in 2007 and haven’t left. I joined the Church of the Nazarene in 2010 and became a Nazarene Missionary. I love the opportunity to practice a broad scope of medicine each day, to share Jesus’s love with the patients I meet, and to be able to be Jesus’s hands and feet to the people of PNG.
