Guest Speakers: Stephen and Annette Morely
This week we are pleased to have Stephen and Annette Morely as our special speakers in both services. They are Specialized Assignment missionaries with the church of the Nazarene in the Republic of Ireland.
They have made their home in Wicklow Town, County Wicklow on the east coast of Ireland, just south of Dublin since the middle of 2011. The Morley’s have two children. Elizabeth is a graduating senior at Mid-America Nazarene University in Olathe, KS and Matthew who will be starting at Point Loma Nazarene University in the fall of 2014.
Prior to their present assignment they served in pastoral ministry for 21 years. Stephen & Annette are both products of the ministry of our international church. Stephen was raised in a pastor’s home in England, Denmark and the USA.
Annette was a missionary kid in South Africa. It was in Africa that Steve & Annette first met, and it was while serving with Youth in Mission, a program of Nazarene Youth International that Stephen reaffirmed God’s call on his life.
While they depend on the World Evangelism Fund, they are part of a small group of missionaries that raise the majority of their own support, helping the WEF to stretch further.
Stephen & Annette lead a team of MissionCorp and student volunteers that is charged with developing and implementing a strategy for reaching Ireland for Christ. Together they are working for Christ and His Church in Wicklow Town.
Our own Kaitlyn Dexter will be joining their team as a 365 M student from Nazarene Theological Seminary. 365 M stands for 365 days in cross-cultural ministry.
This is an opportunity to hear about what the Morley’s are doing in Ireland as well as an opportunity to meet the people that Katie will be working with.
Join us as Stephen & Annette come, they long to share their story, their hearts and the challenge of reaching our world for Jesus… a challenge that is for all of us.
