NORTHWEST IMPACT is an annual mission offering that extends and equips the partnership of Northwest Baptist Convention churches for the spiritual transformation of Oregon, Washington and north Idaho. Formally known as the Sylvia Wilson Mission Offering, the Northwest Impact theme seeks to multiply the cooperative mission efforts of about 500 Northwest Baptist churches through church planting, leadership development of pastors and ministry staff, Disaster Relief ministries that offer people help and hope in the midst of crisis, sharing Christ’s love with children through Vacation Bible Schools and other outreach projects, evangelism among special groups such as college students and helping churches make an impact in our neighborhoods and among the nations.
The offering typically accompanies a Week of Prayer in which churches can pray specifically together for the supported ministries. The printed materials for the Week of Prayer are undated so that your church can use it when it is best for you. Historically, churches observe the Week of Prayer during the second week of September and collect the offering during the remaining Sundays in September.
