Ministry leaders at the Northwest Baptist Convention are praying for you and trying to assist you regarding the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in our region. We encourage local church leaders to continually assess this situation, as it rapidly evolves, take the precautions you deem appropriate and follow guidelines set by local, state or federal governing authorities. Our respective state health department websites are listed below, but we would also encourage checking your county health department website for information as well.
Many of our churches will be hosting online services using social media platforms like Facebook Live and finding ways of demonstrating care for people in their congregations and sharing the hope of Christ with people in their communities across the Northwest.
LifeWay Christian Resources has developed a free resource for churches, which can be found here:

In regard to upcoming NWBC events, our staff is working with individual event organizers to continually assess whether or not to move forward with upcoming events. If an event you have registered for is canceled, please allow the business office 30 days to process any refunds.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office. You can also stay up to date with NWBC events on the NWBC Facebook page (NWBC Facebook), where we will post any event updates as they are made available.
This is an ever-changing situation and our staff is working to keep up to date with relevant information. Please know that you, your churches, and your communities are prayed for daily.
