Welcome Marbellys Diaz
Special Announcement: Covid-19 Resource Specialist to Support Your Church. We know that the Coronavirus continues to wage medical warfare on most of the world, and it continues to impact all of our lives, schools, camps, and churches.  We have wondered, “what more can we do to stay informed and to help our churches?” 
We are pleased to announce to you that NWYM recently received a grant that enables us to hire Marbellys Diaz as our temporary part-time Resource Specialist related to Covid-19!  Marbellys is the wife of Pastor Angel Diaz (Iglesia Amigos en Newberg y McMinnville), and she served previously as a bi-lingual public school teacher.  She has already started training for this temporary position with a branch of the Oregon Health Authority and will have access to their most cutting edge educational and communication resources.  You know that reports about the Coronavirus and new regulations seem to change weekly (if not more often), so we believe that it will be helpful to have someone on our team to provide extra insight, support, and guidance during this season.  Marbellys will be contacting each church over the next few weeks to see if/how we can be of help or support to you. You can reach her at

Ladies, you are invited!  Rise Retreat "Flourish" is coming soon!  September 18-20 at beautiful Quaker Hill Camp and Conference Center in McCall, Idaho.
