Dorchester Star - - Re­gional -

CAM­BRIDGE — The Rev. Robert Prescott will be the guest speaker at the Cam­bridge Church of the Nazarene at 10:45 a.m. Sun­day, May 29. Prescott is the co­or­di­na­tor of part­ner­ships for Latin Amer­ica at the Church of the Nazarene Head­quar­ters in the Global Min­istry Cen­ter, Lenexa, Kan.

Prescott has been serv­ing as a spe­cial­ized as­sign­ment mis­sion­ary on the Me­soamer­ica Re­gion. He con­nects in­di­vid­u­als, churches and dis­tricts in North Amer­ica with spe­cial needs and mis­sion sites seek­ing multi-year re­la­tion­ships. He also fa­cil­i­tates di­rected giv­ing for spe­cial mis­sion projects.

Prescott has been co­or­di­nat­ing travel and teams to Cuba, where he lived for 11 years in his youth. Re­cent changes in gov­ern­ment reg­u­la­tions per­mit travel to Cuba for re­li­gious pur­poses, in­clud­ing con­struc­tion of build­ings.

The son of mis­sion­ar­ies Lyle and Grace Prescott, he lived in the Caribbean for 19 years and is flu­ent in Span­ish. He ma­jored in re­li­gion at Pasadena Nazarene Col­lege and did grad­u­ate stud­ies at Cor­nell Univer­sity. He pa­s­tored two churches in Puerto Rico, and planted a His­panic church in Ox­nard, Calif. Prescott trav­eled to 67 coun­tries dur­ing his 14 years with Nazarene Com­pas­sion­ate Min­istries, guid­ing cri­sis re­sponse, train­ing na­tional lead­ers and help­ing churches reach out to meet lo­cal needs.

He is also a pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tor. His sec­u­lar ca­reer was with U.S. and city gov­ern­ments, where he ad­min­is­tered hous­ing, com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment and dis­as­ter re­lief pro­grams. He and his wife, Ber­nice, live in David­sonville, where he served as mis­sions pres­i­dent of the Mid-At­lantic District for 13 years.

Due to the re­cent fire, the Nazarene Church is meet­ing at the Sev­enth Day Ad­ven­tist Church in Cam­bridge, with 10 a.m. Sun­day school and 10:45 a.m. wor­ship. Call 410-228-1592 with any ques­tions or for di­rec­tions.
