DISTRICT ASSEMBLY 2021
This year we’ve been through difficult and stressful times. But during these dark days, God’s Word tells us “the
darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you” (Psalm 139:12).
Let's come together for District Assembly this year to celebrate the light of our God!
Format: This year we will have a "hybrid" District Assembly, meaning that most delegates will participate online
while some will meet in person.
When: Friday, April 16
In-person location: Spokane Valley Church of the Nazarene
In-person attendance: One person or couple (from the same household) from each church
(e.g. lead pastor and spouse, delegate couple for churches in pastoral transition, etc.).
Catered meals for lunch and dinner will be provided on site.
Online participation: All other delegates, lay and ministerial, are invited to participate online.
The delegate handbook and voting will take place through our new Northwest District app. More information about the app will be sent later.
District Assembly business: 10:00 am-12 noon, 1:30-3:00 pm
NMI Convention business: 3:00-4:30 pm
Ordination Service: 6:30-8:00 pm
Ordination Service: In-person attendance will be limited to ordinands, ordinand family, and some ministers (including the specific ministers who will be praying for each ordinand).
Live streaming: All sessions, including the business sessions and the ordination service, will be available via live streaming for any non-delegates who want to watch online.
Workshops: Workshops are being planned for Tuesday April 13, Wednesday April 14, and Thursday April 15 in the evenings. These workshops will take place via zoom. Workshop titles and synopses, presenter names, and link information will be sent when available.
Children activities: There will be no in-person activities for children (and childcare will not be available for any attending in person). However, Cindy Reynolds is planning a zoom activity for children. More information will be sent later.
SPARK Online is a one-day training seminar offering children’s ministry workers a chance to connect, learn, and be encouraged. This is a great opportunity for anyone who works or volunteers in children’s ministry (Sunday school teachers, Caravan leaders, quiz coaches, children’s church helpers, you name it!).
When: March 6 or April 24
To support our fantastic children’s workers, NW District SDMI will offer a $20 sponsorship to the first 30 people who register at equiptoengage.org/spark with the coupon code nw21.
