Welcome to NWMC 2017 So excited to have you join us! This year we have been focusing on and prayerfully

planning around the word GENERATE! To produce! But it is far more than just a numbers thing! We wanted to put together an experience which would help to generate possibilities for your unique ministry context! Our message is unchanging, but our world is reeling out of control. We have the answer! But how we do what we do has got to change. The world is not the same! Your time here will generate possibilities you wouldn’t have known possible. Ask a question! Go ahead!

Blake Caldwell

NWMinCon Conference Director

We talk in plurals. But not because of bad grammar, we were designed to do this together! We have been planning! Hopefully, you have come with a team member (again, not because of numbers). We were not meant to do life or ministry alone, but with others and as part of God’s Kingdom! We pray that you will find and foster a relationship or two here that will help you go beyond the dates of this conference! Look around you now! Who do you see? Someone just like you! You can be encouraged and be an encouragement to someone right now! Introduce yourself to someone! Make an acquaintance! Share your cell phone #! Generate some collaboration! You will be surprised where you will end up! We are so much better together!

Gary Dixon

NWMinCon Executive Director

There’s lots here to see and do! Don’t be overwhelmed! Be encouraged! Dive in! Don’t look back! You’ll be amazed at where you end up!
