About Us

The Pacific Northwest has been a spiritual War-Zone for decades. In the last 10 years, things have gotten even worse. As we face various hostilities, deceptions, uncertainties, an increase in wickedness, and the love of many growing cold, we believe that the mission and vision of Jesus for a Church that crushes Hell is exactly how to bring a cultural revolution in the PNW, but we cannot settle for a lukewarm, shallow Christian faith that leaves the character of the believer ineffective and unproductive. 

 

So our aim is to defy shallow Christianity until we see a statistical change to the PNW. We do this by combining powerful and immersive elements of Spirit and Truth in the context of character development. Working to forge contagious repeatable ministries that can help every Bible believing church in our region to defy shallow Christianity and usher in a cultural revolution that will inspire people from around the world and future generations. 

Our church Affiliation is the Assemblies of God which formed over 100 years ago to start the greatest evangelism movement the world has ever seen. Mission accomplished! The Assemblies of God is the largest Pentecostal affiliation of churches in the world. We enjoy the best of both worlds between denominational and non-denominational churches–Every AG church is autonomous forming their own leadership, strategies, ministries, culture, and unique characteristics, but we have an actual accountability structure/covering that offers amongst the best protection globally for congregations and pastors alike.

Lead Children's Teacher

Rich Nelson

With an infectious passion for God's Word and more than 40 years experience teaching children, even though his professional career was construction, he is certainly more than a carpenter. . . Every time he teaches children, they feel valued, have fun, and get excited about the Bible. Warning: Children tend to drag their parents out of bed and back to church on Sundays whenever Rich teaches. His jovial personality and sincere love for God, along with a lifetime of integrity are the qualities we love about him most.
