Equipping from Excellence!

By Craig Hall

Pastor of Missions and Youth, Family Church, Sutherlin, Oregon

Craig Hall Mission Connexion


For the past 6 years I have been taking cross-cultural teams to Mexico with those from our church body. It was a short-term mission trip that the Lord used to call me into full time ministry as the Youth Pastor at Family Church in Sutherlin, Oregon.  After returning from these short term experiences I then further encourage team members to attend Mission Connexion by way of next steps.  Even high school juniors and seniors are encouraged to go to Mission Connexion so they can consider the types of work and ministry that the Lord may have for them after high school.

Happy Valley Church Impacts World

By Kathy Ikola

Kathy Ikola picture with childrenI first attended Mission ConneXion Northwest (MCNW) in 2003. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it reminded me of my YWAM Discipleship Training School days, where the teachers were passionate, honest and challenging. Several things said that weekend at MCNW inspired me to join a group of young people on a short-term mission trip to Uganda in the summer of 2004. That trip prompted another Uganda visit in 2005 and our congregation, Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church (Happy Valley), began to partner with fellow believers in Uganda in establishing a Christian school in a Muslim area and to help with church planting.

Pastor Anticipates Eye-Opening Conference

By Dave Dawson, Bethel Church, Richland, WA

Dave Dawson Mission ConnexionWe all enjoy watching our children as they explore the world, learn how it works and then respond to it in wide-eyed wonder.  As fun as that is to watch, it is even more remarkable when adults learn about the world and respond like children in open mouth astonishment.  Many of the people here at Bethel Church have responded to Mission ConneXion Northwest (MCNW) in this way.
