As a Diocese we have a goal of planting 10 new Anglican Churches in 5 years. We believe that this is the next step in working toward the mission that we feel God has called us to in the Pacific Northwest. While we are well on our way with one new church already planted this year and at least one other underway we need your help to sustain this momentum over the next 5 years. If you are willing to help us reach this goal we invite you to pray for and give towards our church planting efforts.
