NWC Annual Meeting 2022

Jesus said to them, “My Father is always at His work to this very day, and I too am working.” – John 5:17

Our Heavenly Father is at work … always. Can we see it? The Lord Jesus is also laboring on our behalf. Do we celebrate this? And what about the Holy Spirit proceeding from the Father and the Son? The Spirit is also at work, encouraging, supporting, moving, challenging, convicting, reviving, sustaining, motivating, advocating, strengthening, comforting and interceding.

What abundant blessings we have been given as children of God within the Body of Christ! What glimpses of hope! What signs of Grace!

As we gather for the 2022 Annual Meeting of the Northwest Conference, it is our desire that we fix our eyes on the God of Hope … the God of Grace.

Our gathering is a time to celebrate the work of God in our midst to this very day and to consider things that are evidence of His faithfulness, past and present. We will also be anticipating His work in our lives in the future as we elect a new Superintendent and hear about ways that our shared work will continue to unfold in the years to come.

Welcome to this time of celebration and thanksgiving. Let’s recognize together the glimpses of hope and signs of grace that are right before our eyes of faith.

Mark R. Stromberg, NWC Superintendent

Saturday Morning

Trusting the Good Shepherd: God’s Leading Through the Valley

Dr. Donna Harris, President, Minnehaha Academy

In August 2017, a devastating gas explosion destroyed Minnehaha Academy’s upper school. Two lives were lost and many injured. In this moment of crisis, Minnehaha’s executive leadership team looked to the Lord and got to work.

Learn practical, transferable leadership principles for your ministry setting, and hear testimony of God’s faithfulness and provision through difficult times to lead this institution toward a hopeful and inspired new future.

Friday Evening Offering

The Friday evening offering is designated for two Youth Initiatives:

UNITE North Scholarships will help students and leaders attend this first time high school regional event sponsored by the Northwest Conference in response to the cancellation of Unite (formerly CHIC). The event will be held at Bethel University in July.

The Minnehaha Leadership Institute is in its second year and has over 120 high school and 47 middle school student participants. The Institute exists to develop student leaders who, through God’s story of redemption, are striving to become whole and holy people.
