Update on this year’s convention:
We are celebrating 168 years of gathering! And this year the teaching, worship, equipping,youth and children’s program are all available online. It will be a “place” to gather and learn together. We are encouraging church groups to have watch parties all over the Northwest and beyond.
A dedicated website for the NwCC is being created that will give you access to the entire week of learning and encouragement. Speakers will have designated times for interactive sessions for Q and A. You will also have year-round access to all the content!
The Pioneer builders who constructed the tabernacle placed giant wooden letters on it which read “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”
“Go” is really happening this year. We are going far beyond the walls of that great old building and out into every home, church building, parking lot–everywhere that joins-in for unity building growth as we celebrate the 168th Northwest Christian Convention.
Preaching the gospel is happening. Equipping the church is happening. Celebrating missions, education, church planting, youth are all happening. The theme this year is Worth It! And this year it is amazingly relevant to grab onto the power of God’s mission for our lives and declare together that unity in the body of Christ is Worth It!

Name of the Week
The Oregon Christian Convention is pleased to announce that this year’s week of convention will be called the Northwest Christian Convention. This shift from “Oregon” to “Northwest” comes at a time when we are striving to serve the entire Northwest with ministry equipping opportunities. The shift also reflects the reality that the convention was started by pioneers who came to the Oregon Territory. And this territory extended beyond the current borders of Oregon.
The place the event happens is called the Oregon Christian Convention and the actual week of convention is called the Oregon Christian Convention. So, the “place” and “name” of the organization remains Oregon Christian Convention but the week we come together will be called the Northwest Christian Convention.
