NWD17 - "Lead"

Each year during the fall we gather as the Northwest Foursquare District.

We come together representing five different states and over 200 churches with one common goal – reaching our communities with the hope of the world – Jesus.   

We spend time learning from phenomenal pastors and leaders. We celebrate the movement of God in our different communities and we hangout with others who share our passion.  We come away inspired, refreshed, empowered and excited to return to the place has God called us.
