Write For Us

Join Engage to tell your story!

Engage magazine is the gathering place where you can join Nazarenes in 155 world areas in celebrating your part in God's mission story.

Write and submit your articles and essays about your mission experiences. Tell how God is working through your district's compassionate ministry projects. Write about your congregation's church planting and outreach struggles and victories. Interview a passionate local mission leader. Share about when you accepted God's call to a life of mission and ministry. Tell how a Nazarene mission effort helped you find new life in Christ.

E-mail us at engagemagazine @ nazarene.org with your story idea. We'll work with you to see if it is a good fit for the mission and readers of Engage and, if so, how to shape your story for publication.

What format should my photos be in?

Photos can be submitted as JPEG, TIFF, and BMP. The resolution should be 72 dots per inch (dpi), and the longest side should be no longer than 8 inches, or 20 centimeters. This allows for pictures to load quickly and easily for people who are reading Engage using a slow Internet connection or with dial-up Internet.

Will I get paid if I contribute?

Engage magazine is a gathering place for Nazarenes to tell our global family how God is calling and involving each of us in His mission for the world. As such, we do not pay for stories, photos, essays, or any other content that is voluntarily submitted. We look forward to reading your stories and seeing your photos, and we know others in our global family do, too!

What should I write about?

Anything, as long as it relates to Nazarenes in mission. Personal essays, interviews and articles are always welcome.

Photo essays are a great way to tell a story quickly and visually, with the aid of captions. You can e-mail your photos to us, along with detailed information for the captions, and the names of those who took the pictures. We'll create a photo essay under your name.

I'm not a professional writer.

That's OK! We believe your passion comes through best when you tell your story in your own words.

When you submit your story to our editors, we may help out by giving it a few polishing touches, or sending it back to you with a few friendly suggestions that will help you bring clarity to your story. And we're always happy to answer questions on how to tell your story in a clear and compelling way.

So, don't hold back.
