What is NWMC?

We are a religious non-profit ministry dedicated to

Helping men (and women) know Christ  

Col. 1:27, 28

The Greatest Need in Men and Women


The core issue for people is to know who they are – their essential identity. This is the fundamental reason for most problems in people’s lives. They  tend to live out of a false idea of themselves which is dishonest and problematic.

From theScriptures we know that there is only one answer to the need for a true and honest self – Jesus. He is the life and identity every person was created to have.

NW Men’s Coalition (NWMC) wants to help every man and woman personally know Jesus and realize He is their life. Colossians 1:27-29

We are a network of men (and women) who want to:

1. Help others know Jesus, not just be better people. Phil. 3:7-9
2. Encourage people to grow in the revelation of Jesus, not just know about Jesus. 2 Pet.3:18
3. Stimulate people to see Jesus “formed” in not just added to their lives. Gal. 4:19
4. Teach people how to live in union with Christ –  living in, as, and through them. John 14:20; 17:21; Phil. 3:9; Gal. 2:20
5. Create environments where people can encourage one another in their walk as Jesus. Col. 3:16; Eph. 5:19-21

NWMC wants to help men and women know Christ better, not just be better people. 

Stimulating Personal Discovery

NWMC seeks to stimulate the conversation and discovery of what it means  to live in and as Christ. How can the truth of Col. 1:27 and Gal 2:20 be lived out?


NMWC seeks to host highly engaging and relational environments where people can authentically discover the Christ Life. These include personal and group meetings and periodic large group conferences.

We are the “fellowship of the mystery” (Eph. 3:6), sharing the unfathomable truth of Christ living in us.
