NORTHWEST DISTRICT HISTORY

 

The Northwest District is the oldest district in the Church of the Nazarene. In 1903, Phineas Bresee embarked on a deliberate strategy for church planting, and as the number of new congregations spread up and down the Pacific coast, the need for area supervision became more acute. In 1904 he set in order the Northwest District and appointed Rev. H. D. Brown of Seattle as the first district superintendent.   

The Northwest District of the Church of the Nazarene is unique. Organized in December 1904, the Northwest District had already held four annual district assemblies before the Church of the Nazarene was officially organized in Pilot Point, Texas in 1908. The original boundaries included churches in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. In its 15th district assembly (1919), the Northwest District reported 23 churches with 795 members. By the time the district had been in existence for 25 years it had been divided into five districts. In all, eight districts have been formed out of the original geographical boundaries.
