Local Ministries

Our board of Local Outreach works in a variety of ways to help us build meaningful bridges to people in need and to those who don’t know Jesus yet; addressing issues of justice and evangelism in the Pacific Northwest.



Northwest Yearly Meeting has programs and activities for children in addition to programs offered by individual churches. A week of interesting and exciting activities is offered during the annual sessions (Yearly Meeting) held in July. Grade school children are invited to participate in the day camp program at Tilikum during the week, with evening activities during the nightly sessions. Other camping opportunities are available during the summer through the various camps (see Camping Programs).


Educational Institutions

There are educational institutions that are affiliated with the Northwest Yearly Meeting. These institutions cover grades K-12, undergraduate, graduate, and seminary programs.


Global Ministries

Our global ministries are sponsored by the Board of Global Outreach. Along with other Friends regions around the country, our sending agency is Evangelical Friends Mission.


Leadership Training

Training opportunities are offered by youth ministries and other boards, as well as through regional gatherings and conferences and various retreats.



Quakers have been committed to active peacemaking since their inception in the mid-1600s. Our understanding of the teachings of Jesus Christ lead us to work for peace and to address the causes of violence. This is not a passive response to uncomfortable situations, but an active response that often moves us out of our comfort zone. We offer this information as a challenge to action and obedience.


Youth and Young Adults

Fellowship, spiritual formation, discernment skills, leadership development and support for the transitions of life are offered to help support the local church in ministering to youth and young adults.
