About NWMN Emergency Preparedness & Response

Psalm 46:1 - God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble

The Northwest Ministry Network recognizes the importance for our churches and ministers to have the resources and aid available to help assist communities in times of trouble. It is a necessity that churches are invovled to aid the Northwest in times of crisis. 

It is our desire to help train, prepare, and equip churches to respond to critical incidents and have the organizational resources needed in order to do so.

By creating and starting a list of the resources your church has available and letting our offices know, we as a Network can better mobilize during critical incidences. It is a valuable way to also obtain resources and attend training events held Network wide.


An online Lay Chaplaincy Training is available for anyone. Chaplains serve those in our communities through jail ministries, local businesses, ski resorts, natural disasters and more. They reach beyond themselves to help those in need. 

An online Lay Chaplaincy Training is available through Christ Center Cashmere. Click here for more information. 

The Chaplaincy Manual provided at trainings is also available for direct download here, or by clicking the image.
