Our Vision

The NWCEA Vision is Encouraging Pastors, Equipping Leaders & Establishing New Churches.  You can invest in our vision by becoming a Kingdom Partner.  First, you can invest as a Prayer Partner.  Second, you can invest a Special Gift.  Third, you can invest a Monthly Gift.  Please call Sean Thome' at 503-789-2810 or email him at thenwcea@gmail.com to discuss becoming a Kingdom Partner to help grow God's Kingdom.

"This is what the kingdom of God is like.  A man scatters seed on the ground.  Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts out and grows, though he does not know how.  All by itself the soil produces grain - first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel of the head.  As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come."  Jesus, Mark 4:26-29.

God's kingdom is advancing as surely as the seed grows and produces a full head of grain, ready for harvest.  Jesus' mission to build His church through his focus for us "to seek and save the lost" is catching new momentum and enthusiasm through this ministry of church planting!
