The purpose of Prime Time Ministries is the salvation, sanctification, spiritual growth, and continued service of maturing adults.
Through Prime Time Ministries, the Church of the Nazarene is responding to the large and growing group of older adults within the churches and communities we serve. Mature adults are vitally important to our church. Within this group can be found valuable resources vital to the health and growth of our local church ministries. Among these are wisdom, experience, traditions, stability, spiritual maturity, and love for their church and church family. New levels of longevity, health and vitality, as well as discretionary resources and time are also found.
The Church of the Nazarene recognizes the tremendous contribution mature adults have already made during their lifetimes for the sake of the local program. Further, Prime Time Ministries emphasizes the great ministry potential that still resides with this group. Our ministry is not only focused on ministry to mature adults, but ministry through and with them as well. It is certainly true, among mature adults as much as it is among other adult groups, that adulthood is a journey, not a destination.
