A Network consists of two or more churches that covenant together – sharing relationships and resources – to effectively engage in pastoral care, shared church planting projects, and an Alliance Global Partnership (Acts 1:8).
Lead Pastors of churches involved in a Network typically meet three to four times annually in a 24-hour retreat format to play, pray, and plan together.
Networks are a primary vehicle enabling Alliance Northwest churches and leaders to accomplish together what we could never do alone. Where it can be hard for one church to take sole responsibility to mother a new church regionally or own a global project, several can do it together – catalyzed by the support and resources of the Alliance Northwest Field Office and Northwest Church Planting.
