Mountain View Alliance Church raises $30k for neighboring non-Alliance church plant

When word came to Mountain View Alliance Church (Snohomish, Washington) that a church plant in the city was embarking on a costly but needed roofing project, Mountain View acted generously. The church raised $30,000 for the new plant, fully half of the money needed for the roof! A beautiful example of embracing and supporting our brothers and sisters doing Kingdom work.

North Sound Network making waves

The North Sound Network is already showing some of the benefits that arise when area churches join forces and work together.

The churches have created a pulpit exchange that allows for greater awareness and integration between their churches. They are also taking their first trip to visit their shared global partner in Ukraine. And during their recent network retreat, the pastors developed plans for a leadership pipeline to raise up new leaders and church planters.

The North Sound Network is comprised of six Alliance Northwest churches: Smokey Point Community Church (Jim Johnson), Northside Community Church (Ted Swinburne), Madison Community Church (Peter Vincent), Mountain View Community Church (Tim Young), Brookview Community Church (Jason Huguenin), and International Bible Christian Fellowship (Romualdo Sente Jr.).

Three pastors pass Ordination interviews

In late October, Joel To (Associate Pastor at Missio Community in Portland, Oregon), Josh Droke (Associate Pastor at East Hills Alliance Church in Kelso, Washington), and Steve Davis (Pastor at Glenfair Church in Gresham, Oregon) completed the final step in becoming ordained within the Alliance. Congratulations to you three!
