2016 Leadership Summit

LS2016-title

Open Doors for Effective Ministry

“….a great door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many who oppose me.”  I Corinthians 16:9

Leadership Summit 2016 was a highlight for our PNWC family as we gathered in Seattle June 17 and 18 on the campuses of SPU and First Church to celebrate “open doors for effective ministry”  across our conference and around the world. We heard from several speakers, celebrated our PNWC founding partnerships with Seattle Pacific University, Warm Beach Camp, and Warm Beach Senior Community, took care of some business for the corporation, and connected with several ministries, friends and colleagues.

In case you missed anything or wanted to listen to a speaker again, here are the links to various sessions and resources:
