Mission Northwest

The Northwest has a reputation for being beautiful, edgy, technologically savvy and uninterested in the Gospel. Most locals are refreshingly open to discussing “spiritual things” but very few attend a church of any kind. In the late 1990s God began to call his Church to meet these challenges by calling his people back to the New Testament model of fulfilling the Great Commission through church planting. Our network is part of that movement and has planted 11 missions since 2004. Looking forward, we are preparing for our part of the multi-generational of church planting God has laid before us.
