Mission ConneXion Northwest 2018 seems like forever away, seven months will fly by before we know it!
As we look toward January, we are expecting a potential record number of attendees, and our Steering Team is already putting volunteer teams into place. Some positions require training in advance, and some can be easily summarized a few days before the event, but all of them require willing hands and hearts.
Since the plenary sessions and workshops are available for free following the conference, we are hoping that mission-minded people would be wiling to make the sacrifice and serve as needed.
Dear Mission ConneXion ,
Our journey of being called started when we attended Mission ConneXion Northwest. That week, my wife Gina told me that she felt like we were supposed to go be missionaries and that she had just seen on Facebook that Mission ConneXion Northwest was happening that weekend in Portland.

As the summer travel season creeps up, perhaps you plan to use your hard-earned vacation days to visit a missionary….I’m sure you want to be — and will be! — a delightful houseguest. Here are some tips that hopefully will help you deliver encouragement (not embarrassment) and joy during your stay (not joy once you’ve gone).
Pray for Open Doors (Colossains 4:2-3)
Pray that God will open doors of ministry, blessing partnerships and friendships.
Pray that those who serve will be led by the Holy Spirit and recognize open-door opportunities.
Pray that God will lead His people past barriers to hearts ready to receive his Word.

Mountains have stories. They overlook cities and towns; they see war, destruction and reconstruction. Some testify to huge cataclysmic events — a volcanic eruption or a flood halted by the mountain’s base. Mountains create natural borders for nations and peoples; they cause disruption in travelling, expansion and exploring. For centuries, mountains have seen it all. They have stories to tell.
