Northwest Mission Institute trains lay church members how to become leaders in personal ministries. Many students need financial assistance.
Imagine taking six months out of your college degree so you can be trained to be an on-the-job missionary. Or, imagine quiting your full-time job, selling your belongings and dragging your family across the country with the goal of becomming a personal ministries leader in a church. Do you have that picture in your head? Now imagine looking forward to working full time for a paycheck that's right on the poverty level, and doing that willingly.
That's what Northwest Mission Institute students are all about. Our students have passion for the Gospel, they have strong work ethic, and a passion for learning. The one thing they don't all have is enough money to pay for their training.
That's where you come in. A gift of $25 will help one student pay for a textbook. A gift of $500 will pay for food for three months. A gift of $1,000 will pay for housing for six months. A gift of $5,000 will fully fund one student through Northwest Mission Institute (food, housing, tuition and fees).
Northwest Mission Institute has a powerful training program. Not only do we give the theory behind personal ministries leadership in all forms (Bible work, literature evangelism, health ministries, and more), but we give real-world experiences for students to practice leadership. For example, a couple weeks ago a group of Northwest Mission Institute students did an outreach training at a church in the Walla Walla Valley, and then took the participants out to visit their neighborhood. In just an hour of visiting they found several people interested in Bible studies, and one family of 15 who wanted to learn about Bible prophecy!
