PLAN A VISIT
We’re so grateful that you are
interested in visiting our family! Checking out a church for the first
time can be intimidating or confusing but it’s our goal to make your
first-time experience at our church as easy and hassle-free as possible.
Make sure to stop by the welcome kiosk located in the center of our commons! Our commons can be found through the double doors in front of the building!
WHAT ABOUT MY FAMILY?
At Glendale Nazarene Church, we love kids. That’s why we designed a fun, new, interactive space just for them. With music, drama, and storytelling, kids learn about God’s love every week. Our kids church service runs at the same time as the adult service.
High School Ministry gathers every Sunday to celebrate life and connect with God through laughter, great music, videos, and challenging messages from God’s Word.More Information

Pastor Paul Magnuson and his wife Vangie came to GNAZ 14 years ago & took over the Ambassadors Sunday School Class in 2005. Paul enjoys serving in Pastoral Leadership, serving God’s people and as the Senior Adult Pastor/Chaplin. God has blessed him and Vangie with a fruitful ministry in GNAZ & with our Nazarene District. He became a staff member in 2011 & from that time has continued his pastoral education, and duties. It is for God’s Glory that he proclaims The Good News of Jesus Christ in our Church, in homes, in hospitals in care facilities, & throughout this metro area. My hope is to meet new people at GNAZ every Lord’s Day.

Church is more than a service. It's people living life together and helping one another grow in their relationship with Christ. Each week, our people meet in small communities to learn about God, pray, eat, laugh, and live. We call these “Love Others” Groups—and they're the very heart of our church. We believe that God has a specific plan and purpose for your life and through our love other groups, we would love to help you discover that. Get connected to a group to help you in your devotion to God by "loving up", fostering relationships that help you "love in", and being and working in your community by "loving out".Learn More
There are several opportunities to “Love out” here at GNAZ. What are you passionate about, what gets your heart pumping when it comes to the idea of helping another person? Is it leading a love others group through a book of the bible? Do you enjoy behind the scenes jobs like cinematographer or sound engineer, or making crisis care kits to be sent out to help people in disaster zones? There are even opportunities to make our community and surrounding area a better place by helping those in need with painting or food supplies. You might even want to go across the world and serve in one of our churches in the D.R. Congo.Learn More
