Northwest Independent Church Extension
Thank you Alderwood, now over 50 years, for your love, prayers and support for the ministry God has given us with Northwest Independent Church Extension.
We’re so very grateful for your faithfulness to the Lord and to us through all the changing seasons of our lives and ministry. You have partnered with us – we praise God!
For the past 20 years we have served as Minister At Large with NICE. This has given us the opportunity to provide Pastoral care, encouragement and challenge to the believers in churches throughout the Pacific Northwest. In many ways these years have been especially rewarding as we’ve had the privilege to teach and preach the Word almost every week in a different church.
Since June 2020 we’ve been privileged to serve the Wishkah Valley Community Church near Aberdeen as Interim Pastor. The congregation was grieving the death of their Pastor who was called to glory in April. God has enabled us to teach and preach the Word each week, and the believers have responded with hearts of obedience to the Lord. They have begun Women’s Bible studies, weekly prayer services, outreach ministry to the Mission and Pregnancy Center, and now have prepared and sent 360 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. Praise God! Do please continue to pray for this body of believers, and for God’s provision of a new pastor, and for us as we seek to provide spiritual help and encouragement.
Thank YOU Alderwood! From our hearts we want you to know of our deep gratitude for your partnering with us these 50+ years! May God bless and use you in these challenging days!

This picture was taken of us by Ken Gaydos in the Edmonds Park in September 1970. Dr. Wendt was the new Pastor at Alderwood. He was the speaker at Mt. Lassen Bible Camp in 1947 when I committed my life to the Lord’s service, thus he encouraged ACC in commitment to our support.
