2015 Annual Meeting of Baptist Network Northwest
In April of each year the churches and pastors of Baptist Network Norhtwest assemble for our Annual Meeting. Our Pastors and guests met in Richland, WA for the 2015 Baptist Network Northwest Annual Conference. Pastor Jim Mailloux and the staff of First Baptist Richland graciously hosted our meeting April 16-18. 70+ Pastors and guests representing 28 churches from Washington, Oregon and Idaho enjoyed a great time of fellowship, study, and worship.
By God’s grace, we connected with Pastor Aaron Patton from Oak Grove Baptist in Kansas City. All were blessed by Pastor Aaron and his brother Alex, as they shared new songs of worship and praise and taught from God’s Word on “Life Changing Ministry” during 5 Chapel sessions.
18 Workshops gave those attending the opportunity to choose from a variety of topics from Church Planting, Impact of Reproducing Church, Men’s Ministry, Short-Term Mission Trips, ESL Ministry, Lamentations Ministry Model, Church Health, Dynamic Team Building, and Synergistic Relationship Between God, You, and Your Church and Jail Ministry.
Other conference highlights included the Business Meeting with election of new Council members, reports from David Thompson on Northwest Baptist Home Mission finances and Pete Steele on the events of student ministries (NWYM) and the progress of the multi-ethnic ministry of International Baptist in Portland, Oregon.
Council 15 Members elected were David Lunsford, Tim Baker, Dennis Wilkening, Dan Frank, Andy Grenier, and Donn Mogford.
