NWBC Church Planting Conference   

April 27-29, 2020

Cannon Beach Conference Center

Cannon Beach, OR


NOTE: This is an invite-only event.


Room check in is available beginning 1:30 pm on Monday, April 27th.

The first session begins at 3:00 pm on Monday, April 27th.

We will wrap up just before lunch on Wednesday, Apr 29th.


All your expenses related to the Church Starting Conference, are covered. This includes meals, mileage, and two nights' lodging.


This conference is a mandatory meeting for all lead church planters who are receiving mission assistance. Exceptions must be pre-authorized by email by Gary Irby and are only allowed due to providential hindrance (such as your wife having a baby that week). Unacceptable reasons for missing the conference include but are not limited to weddings, outreach events, Bible studies, etc. We know all of these ministries are important, but the conference is priority for this one week and ample advanced notice has been given to avoid scheduling conflicts.


Participation by your spouse is desired, but optional. Children may also attend, and we are able to offer an amazing VBS / childcare for children, ages birth through sixth grade, as well as a class for middle and high school students. If you need childcare for this age bracket, we need to know immediately by including ages and names in your registration below. This will enable us to secure enough workers.

Please email Natalie Hammond with any questions.
