Step One is a Western Jurisdiction event open to all who are curious about starting a new church, a new faith community, or a new place for new people. This may be a traditional church, a house church, or even a messy church. Existing pastors are welcome. Those discerning a call to vocational ministry are welcome. Lay people who want to lead something new are welcome. The event will be hosted by the Pacific Northwest Conference in Seattle, WA.
