Jesus of Nazareth Compassion Ministries
THE MISSION STATEMENT for Jesus of Nazareth (J.o.N.) Compassion Ministries is:
To Grace the Body of Christ with Opportunities to Evangelize the Hurting via Compassion Ministries and Love Them into the Church.
WHO DO WE SERVE?
We serve the Denver Westwood Neighborhood, sometimes referred to as the "forgotten city". Our community has according to the 2010 US Census:
- A population of 15,486
- 80.7% Latino population
- 5,683 children under the age of 18
- 31.5% of those children live in poverty
- $11,336.30 average annual wages (x) worker
We serve the Body of Christ. Though we are a Nazarene Compassion Ministry, we exist to encourage all Christians to step out of their comfort zone and fulfill God's command to love others as themselves, especially children, single moms, immigrants, and all the poor.
We serve Jesus Christ who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and no one comes to God the Father except through Him (John 14:6).
