Who We Are

The Spokane Valley Church of the Nazarene Mission Council is comprised of 10-12 members of the congregation who have a passion for missions.   Current council members are: Rebecca Birnel, Barbara Demmerly, Margaret Jack, Diane Loehner, Barbara Olson, Ray and Pauline Olson, Joanne Turner, Debra Howard, President, and Michael Emerson, Teen representative.  


This group of dedicated folks provides leadership through local, regional, and international activities focused on:

  • Service, such as serving at NW Connect, our local compassionate ministry site; and sponsoring Work and Witness teams
  • Raising awareness of global and local needs, through short videos, mission books for children, youth and adults, hearing from missionaries on deputation, weekly praises and prayer requests
  • Raising funds to support local, regional, and global work in compassionate ministries, as well as spreading the gospel, and preparing and equipping other for ministry


This group plans and executes an annual schedule of education and events to support a missional focus, and also oversees a budget that provides financial support to local Nazarene and non-Nazarene ministries, such as Northwest Connect, Valley Partners, Union Gospel Mission, and Anna Ogden Hall.   In the past decade there have been a variety of Work and Witness trips* to Europe, and Meso-America, as well as local home mission churches in the Pacific NW.

The Peace Wall

Quite moved by the Peace Wall and the International Wall in Belfast. Such a complicated issue with so much woundedness, and yet, there are beautiful and hope-filled signs of healing and a growing commitment to peace. Praise God.

Child Sponsorship

When a woman from Oregon (U.S.A.) decided in 1995 to sponsor a little girl from the Philippines, she couldn’t possibly know how God would honor that investment. God planted a dream in that child’s heart that would bring her from poverty to a life of learning. Today she is the lead developer for the new website and is investing her life in others. Child sponsorship changes lives! Read more at

Food Pantry

The food pantry ministry has been functioning exceptionally well under the guidance of a loyal team of volunteers from Spokane Valley Church.

Over the past several years of our service together, the Northwest Connect Food Pantry Ministry set a new record for food distribution at our NE Community Center location in the Hillyard neighborhood, sharing more than 16,000 additional pounds of food than had been given away in the previous year of operation under SNAP. 

That means our church volunteers surpassed the previous total in food distribution through this ministry by more than eight full tons!  The success of those efforts is creating even more opportunity for us to serve in the coming year, so please continue to remember this life-giving ministry in your daily prayers and consider how you might be a part of this compassionate ministry team as a volunteer or financial supporter. This outreach ministry continues to grow, and the hungry people we are now serving in the compassionate Spirit and name of Jesus can really use your help.
