NWC Annual Meeting Celebration 2024

Our Northwest Conference Annual Meeting Celebration, held each spring, remains a highlight of our shared ministry, as we celebrate what God has done through our churches and affiliated ministries. We hope representatives from each church can join us (either in person or online), as this will be an important time to remember God’s faithfulness as we cling to the hope we have in Christ.

Theme: With Joy

Psalm 126:3 “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.”

Our God is faithful. And God has always been present and at work in communities that honor and follow the Lord. Despite hardships, as recipients of God’s grace, we have infinite reasons to celebrate and be glad. Throughout the NWC Annual Meeting Celebration, we will reflect on how God is at work through our churches and ministries, encourage one another as we serve faithfully, and look forward with hope as we lean in to God’s abundant mercy.

Pastors, the Ministerial Association gathering on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning is for you. You can look forward to encouraging testimonies from ordination candidates, opportunities to learn and grow in ministry and fellowship with other pastors, while also conducting the business of the ministerium. Friday afternoon and Saturday morning’s annual meeting celebration is for everyone – pastors, you are invited to attend alongside your delegates to learn and grow together in our shared mission and ministry. We believe strongly in the value of shared learning and ministry as clergy and lay leaders learn and lead together. Hope to see you there.

With joy!
Kara Stromberg, Superintendent

New in 2024: Workshops

Living with Joy. Leading with Joy.

Presenter: Jon Kramka, NWC Director of Congregational Vitality

Leaning into this year’s Annual Meeting Celebration theme, in this workshop we will be unpacking together the fruit of the Spirit, “Joy”. We will look at factors that help sustain and renew our individual and collective joy. We will also explore how joy nurtures faithfulness and resilience as Christ followers and leaders on mission. So join us as we together build up “the joy of the Lord as our strength” for the season ahead of us.

Gen Z and Gen Alpha – Who are these Kids and Why Does it Matter for Your Ministry?

Presenter: Ginny Olson, NWC Director of Youth Ministry

In this seminar, we’ll delve into the distinctive characteristics of Generation Alpha (born 2010 onwards) and Generation Z (born mid-1990s to 2009). We’ll explore their worldview and attitudes towards faith and spirituality and discover what makes these tech-savvy, socially conscious generations tick. Learn practical tips on how to effectively connect, disciple and empower these generations within your ministry context.

Breaking the Silo of Faith Formation

Presenters: Dave Cairns, Executive Director of Covenant Pines Ministries; Phil Tolbert, Executive Director, Lake Beauty Bible Camp; Kaela Stano, Director, Covenant Park Bible Camp; Chadwick Persons, Camp Director, Bluewater Covenant Bible Camp 

Imagine a world where your church did not do faith formation independently? It does exist. Your Covenant Camps desire to partner with local churches to foster evangelism, discipleship, character and leadership development as well as service opportunities … all important aspects of faith formation, regardless of age. Join the Executive Directors of Bluewater Covenant Bible Camp, Covenant Park Bible Camp, Covenant Pines Ministries and Lake Beauty Bible Camp as we discuss the unique ways camps and churches complement each other in faith formation. Bring your questions so we can learn together … and we’ll have some fun too.
