MCCDC: Did you Ever Imagine Being Here Today?

“Unless you choose to do great things with it, it makes no difference how much you are rewarded, or how much power you have.” –Oprah Winfrey.

God is certainly a great God that encourages and empowers each of us to be great and to do great things. What exactly is greatness? How do you measure it and how do you know when you have accomplished it? What is God’s idea of greatness and “greater things”?

This week Rev. Alberto Najera from New Life MCC of Hampton Roads will join us once again. Rev. Alberto is part of the MCCDC extended family and has been instrumental in supporting the Unid@s Spanish speaking ministry. We welcome him home.
Rev. Alberto will share from John 14:12 and selected verses from Psalms 147. Each passage extols a different perspective on greatness and mighty deeds. God’s greatness is reflected in the grandeur and forces of nature. Those forces can be both beautiful and destructive. The winds can demolish and give a gentle kiss on our cheek. Both reflect aspects of the mighty God that we serve. We are encouraged to praise the God of our understanding. Sing praises to God for the potential that has been created in each of us.

Join us for services at 9 and 11 to extol the greatness of our God.

Guest Speaker Rev. Alberto Nájera

A native of Nicaragua in Central America and a Christian for over 32 years from childhood, Rev. Alberto grew up in the Pentecostal tradition where he assumed increasing ministry responsibilities in the areas of children, youth, and evangelism with the Evangelical Pentecostal Church in Nicaragua. Alberto first came to MCC Peace and Joy in Nicaragua in 2000. In the years that followed his participation was marked with great passion and commitment: as he was ordained a deacon in 2002; later appointed as interim pastoral leader; and in 2006, after an intensive process of theological studies, training, accreditation, recognition of studies completed, and under the leadership of Rev. Elder Darlene Garner, he was ordained as clergy in UFMCC. At that time, Rev. Nájera continued to serve as pastor of MCC Peace and Joy in Managua, Nicaragua and Founder of three groups ICM Mission in Chiriquí, Colón, and Panama City in Panama.

In addition, Rev. Nájera has provided support to the Unidos Latino ministry of MCC Washington, District of Columbia, USA and has served on the international judicial pool of MCC since 2012. Through the years, both in Nicaragua and after coming to the United States, Alberto has remained close to his family. With his parents and three older siblings his early years were spent on a rustic mountain cattle ranch where Alberto developed a lifelong love for riding and horses. Today, he lives in Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA with his husband, Rev. Mark Byrd and their yellow lab, Nica.
