Delegates and friends from across the Northwest District gathered at Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick, Washington for an inspirational time of Celebrating Generations. Time was spent in worship, reporting, equipping, and fellowshipping. A major component of this annual event is the election of district officers for the church year.
