What is NWMC?

We are a religious non-profit ministry dedicated to

Helping men know Christ  

Col. 1:27, 28

The Greatest Need in Men 


The core issue for men is to know who they are – their essential identity. This is the fundamental reason for most problems in men’s lives. Men tend to live
out of a false idea of themselves which is dishonest and problematic. From the
Scriptures 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 man was created to have.
NW Men’s Coalition (NWMC) wants to help every man personally know Jesus and realize He is his life. Colossians 1:27-29

We are a network of men who want to:

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

NWMC wants to help men know Christ better, not just be better men

Stimulating Personal Discovery

NWMC seeks to stimulate the conversation and discovery of what it means for a man 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 men can authentically discover the Christ Life. These include personal and group meetings and periodic large group meetings.
