Growing from our belief that there is a need for more churches and different forms of the church Mission Northwest has entered into a partnership with Fresh Expressions, USA.

We believe that the Holy Spirit will lead many of our established churches to start churches outside their physical location among people who would never consider attending church on a given Sunday. The Vision Days are designed to introduce our churches to FX and encourage experimenting with a Fresh Expressions form of church. This will be our second Vision Day in the region. The first one was offered in Boise. Come and learn more about Fresh Expressons. Investigate the concept. Bring your most influential leaders. Sign up today!

Here's some additional information about the event:

Vision Days are a great way to discover more about what it means to be involved in starting fresh expressions of church. Over 4,000 people have participated in Vision Days in more than 60 different cities.

A typical Vision Day lasts 6 hours and provides the perfect opportunity to discover what it means to be the Church in new and creative ways, hear from Fresh Expressions practitioners, learn how to renew existing congregations through fresh expressions of church, and discern what this could mean for our region, community, or neighborhood. There is active discussion as well as opportunity to build networks and relationships among those in your area.

At the Vision Day you will discover:

  • How fresh expressions of church are renewing the church around the world

  • What it means for your church to be Mission-Shaped

  • How to intentionally engage with the community beyond your church walls

  • Tools for starting fresh expressions of church in your area

The Vision Day is ideal for:

  • Anyone interested in renewal within established congregations

  • Those interested in building relationships and serving the communities in which they live or work

  • Those who have real questions about fresh expressions and mission-shaped church

  • Those who have started something new and need some practical help
