About Us

SWO NYI exists to provide support to and encourage students, Young adults, and Youth Pastors and adult leaders in the local church throughout the Southwest Ohio District Church of the Nazarene.  Through intentional events, retreats, leader training, and gatherings, we believe that we can accomplish this through prayer, teaching sound doctrine, and engaging in meaningful worship.


Our goal is to become a close family unit where students and adult leaders know that they are loved by God and each other, supported in ministry, and prayed for, so that they can be effective leaders in their local communities and reach people for Christ.
