Field Forum 2019 Recap and Session Audio

This week at Field Forum, Alliance Northwest went Deeper. For three days at the Red Lion in Portland, we came together to reunite and realign under our common mission as family. We ate together, communed together, worshipped together. Our keynote speaker Sunder Krishnan brought four Spirit-filled messages on cultivating the mind of Christ in our work, our relationships, our emotions, and the way we bless others. And we ate donuts!

Thanks to Travis Vice and the worship team for ushering us into God’s presence each session. Thanks to Thomas Terry for his spoken word on Monday night. Thanks to all our breakout leaders and how they shared their expertise with us. And thanks to the Red Lion hotel and staff for caring for us.

Below, you can find audio from each of the sessions, as well as some pictures from the event.


Renew 2019 Talks Available to Stream


Another Renew at the Oregon Coast is in the books; a time for rest, contemplation, and reconnecting with Alliance Northwest family (despite the storms outside).

Matt Hannan brought wise counsel with his series on Preserving Your Soul in the Midst of Crisis and Calamity, beginning with the prayer: “Lord, I want you to do in me everything you need to do, in order to do through me everything you want to do.” All four sessions are available for streaming and/or download below.

Thanks once again to everyone who came to the coast and shared their time with the Alliance Northwest family. Next up, Field Forum (March 18-20)!

Middle Schoolers Find Connection at Quest 2018

Most Christians come to know Jesus as young people - and the middle school years are so crucial! Quest is an Alliance Northwest conference for 6th through 8th graders, held at scenic Black Lake Bible Camp each October.

“Connection” was the theme for Quest 2018, using John 15 as the core text. The conference content focused on who Jesus is, who we are, and the relationship we can have with him. “Connection” speaks to the love Jesus has for us and also how we can love him back.

Below, you can find the highlight video from the weekend, as well as a selection of the session talks. Thanks to Claire Faucher and Jason Simmonds, our Quest 2018 speakers!

Hope in the Dark Edge of the Alliance Northwest 

Pastor Steve and Myrn McCord of Naukati Bay, AK, along with Naukati community members, are in the midst of an ark-sized project: bringing the first residential addiction rehabilitation center, named Eagles Wings, to their remote corner of Southeast Alaska. If you are feeling called to help, Eagles Wings is looking for assistance in four areas:

  1. Work teams comprised of Alliance Northwest church volunteers
  2. Barnabas volunteers to live in the residential recovery setting with "Seekers"
  3. Regular financial support of operating costs
  4. Prayer support
