The 68th Annual Meeting of the Northwest Baptist Convention and Pastor/Layman Conference is only weeks away, November 9-11, 2015. Our theme is From Your Neighborhood to the Nations and we have wonderful things planned as we celebrate God’s work among us. Did you know that three of our Northwest pastors lead the national fellowship of their ethnic group? We plan to hear from these three men. Others will share testimonies of God’s work where they serve.
Those preaching include Dr. Frank Page, Chief Executive Officer of the SBC; Dr. Jeff Iorg, President of Golden Gate Seminary; Dustin Hall, Kennewick Baptist Church pastor will bring our annual message; and Dale Jenkins, Airway Heights pastor will bring the president’s address. I am excited about the message God has laid on my heart for the Executive Director’s report (It’s a work in process!).

We’re anticipating a tremendous gathering this year, but it won’t be the same without you, so please make plans to attend. We call it a convention meeting, but really it’s a Northwest Baptist family reunion. I look forward to seeing the family.
