Central Church has formed a collaborative partnership with the Church of the Nazarene in Panama. Through The Panama Partnership, Central Church will work in a variety of ways to support local churches, touch individual lives, and support positive change in Panama.
You can be a part!
Central has committed to PRAYING for, GIVING toward, and GOING to Panama.
Pray. You can pray for the nation of Panama, for the Nazarene Church, and for the local pastors and their families.
Give. You can make a difference by giving of time and resources to The Panama Partnership. Your financial support helps us support local churches, purchase church properties, train pastors, encourage micro-business enterprises, and facilitate compassionate ministry efforts for children and families throughout the nation.
Go. The Panama Partnership has ignited the passion and imagination of many people. We want everyone who has a desire to join a GO (Global Outreach) Team. Central has committed to sending at least two GO Teams per year to Panama with the purpose of helping in construction, evangelism, medical missions, and other compassionate ministry efforts.
Upcoming Panama Trips:
