This Weekend


When Jesus was twelve, he went missing for three days. After an all-out search, he was found in the temple courts. He gave the following response to his parents…"Why were you searching for me?" he asked. "Didn't you know I had to be about my Father's business?"

What did Jesus mean by “business?" Business can be defined as “serious activity requiring time and effort and usually the avoidance of distractions.” So, what is the business of God? As we explore this question, we’ll begin to see that it is a family business; passed down from the Father, to the Son, and to us.

We’re excited about what God is doing in and through JaxNaz Church and we want you to be a part of it! No matter your age, skills, or history, God has called and equipped you to further His kingdom. So, get connected, stay connected and get involved.
