NETWORK CONFERENCE 2020
Currently it takes 6 Northwest Ministry Network Churches to support 1 of the 87 missionary units sent from our network. This makes us one of the leading Networks in the nation but we believe we can do better. We want to equip every church to have a missions strategy that includes supporting "boots on the ground" missionaries and engages children and teens on regular missions trips. Join us at Network Conference 2020 where we turn our focus of MISSIONS FORWARD - Local, Regional, Global - into action and reach the ends of the earth.
