2015 Pastors & Wives Retreat

2015 PW RetreatBNN ministry couples gathered for their annual retreat in the beautiful seaside town of Cannon Beach, Oregon from September 14-17th. The theme of this year’s retreat was “Time Out!” for rest and renewal. The 125 attendees were blessed with good weather, great fellowship, incredible accommodations, and fine preaching from Dr. David Hegg, pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Santa Clarita, CA. Dave grew up in our fellowship, the son of Oscar and Pearl Hegg, and it was great to have him back in land of his roots.

We celebrated 16 years of service with Dave Thompson as NBHM Business Manager with a special reception on Tuesday night. Dave is moving to part time status soon, but will remain in his position until the BNN Council finds his replacement. It was also a joy to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Northwest Baptist Home Mission and Baptist Network Northwest at this year’s retreat. NBHM began in September 1940 as the Columbia Basin Mission, based out of First Baptist Church of Wenatchee. Over the last 75 years there have been over 200 churches started by or part of our network, hundreds of church planters and mission pastors, and thousands of lives changed by the gospel in the NW. It was a joy to have 94 year old Carl Hills, one of our former NBHM Directors present to share in the celebration. To God be the glory for 75 years of changed lives!
