Hundreds of Northwest believers once again flocked to the 41st annual North Pacific Union Conference Regional Convocation, held May 18–21, 2017, at Black Diamond Camp near Auburn, Washington. This may indeed be the final convocation held at the camp, which is no longer able to effectively accommodate the event. Convocation organizers are actively looking for an appropriate 2018 location.
This year’s theme, "Living Reconciled to God, Family, Church and the World," was bolstered by powerful presentations from a number of guest speakers: Clifford Jones, Lake Region Conference president; Virgil Childs, Pacific Union Conference African American ministries director; Timothy Golden, Walla Walla University philosophy professor; Kim Bulgin, minister of music at Glenville Church in Cleveland, Ohio; Patrick Graham, Allegheny East Conference youth director; and musical guests Wayne Bucknor and Andrew Young.
Coordinated by Pattric Parris, NPUC administrative assistant, and Byron Dulan, Washington Conference outreach ministries director, the main programs during the convocation were live-streamed via the NPUC website. The photos on these pages provide a pictorial summary of the event for those who missed attending in person.
