2023 ASI NORTHWEST CONFERENCE

Northwest ASI Conference

April 21-22, 2023

Walla Walla University, Washington

ASI Northwest Chapter invites you to join us for a weekend of inspiring messages, stories of God working in our midst, and tools to support our evangelism in the marketplace.  This conference is for ASI members and others who are interested in sharing the gospel in our communities and around the world.

The theme will be “Won by One!” This is a critical time to reflect on what God has done to save us from sin and death while also recognizing that he has called each of us to use our life to reach out to individuals desperately needing Jesus.

The featured speaker is Calvin Kim, DDS,  from Olympia, WA, and co-founder of the FS Challenge & ARME Bible Camp.  He is currently serving as the VP of evangelism for ASI International. He will encourage us to pause and consider how short life is… and in light of this,  how do we want to live our lives!  In light of eternity, the only thing that truly matters is helping others to meet Jesus!

Shue Vang will share his story-  “Helpless but never hopeless!  Shue is a high school chemistry and biology teacher at Edison High School in Fresno, CA.  At 16, Shue received devastating news when he was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy.  Shue went from being an athletic, able-bodied young man to eventually being confined to a wheelchair, and his body continued to deteriorate. His hopes and dreams were shattered.  Shue went from feeling anger, pain, sadness, hopelessness, and despair to feeling just empty and a sense of nothingness as he went through a series of tragic events.  But we serve a God who can take curses and turn them into blessings.  Today, Shue is thriving because God has touched his life in a very special way. He is now involved in multiple ministries, including the ASI evangelism team.  He is no longer bound by his circumstances but only by his love and allegiance to his Lord and Savior.  His passion is connecting others to Jesus.

As in previous years, ASI “Members in Action” will share inspiring stories of how God is working to change lives through various ministries.

Five delicious vegetarian meals with vegan options will be catered by the WWU cafeteria. Meals will be served in the Alaska room adjacent to the WWU cafeteria.

Children’s Programming: Kids ages 4–11 will love the Christ-centered children’s meetings, where they will be challenged to work for God even while they are young. The gospel lessons are reinforced through songs, stories, crafts, and scripture memorization.

Message from the President

Dear Members,

As you may have already heard, ASI Northwest is joining ASI Pacific Union at beautiful Lake Tahoe for this year‘s Spring Retreat from April 15-17. “Stories of Faith” is the theme, and we will be hearing powerful personal stories!

Dr. TJ Knutson was on duty at the emergency room one Sunday morning when he discovered that members of his own family were coming to his ER following a tragic accident. It’s a difficult, but fascinating story of God’s faithfulness in crisis! Dr. Calvin Kim will share what happened when he felt convicted to ask his patients if they would like Bible studies. Elder Leon Brown will be sharing his personal testimony, and members of ASI will be sharing how God has led, especially during the Covid epidemic.

Children are encouraged to come but there will be no separate children’s meetings this year. If you are interested in being an exhibitor, we encourage you to do so! Everyone enjoys learning about projects around the world!

ASI regional conferences have historically been a great resource in gaining support for growing ministries, and have helped various projects work together with synergistic effects. For those not currently working with a ministry, it opens a world of opportunity for involvement, or may inspire some to begin their own ministry. We hope you can come!

Blessings,
Gary Morgan
President, ASI Northwest
