Participate in #gnwac17 online and be a part of the conversation!

A team of Oregon-Idaho and Pacific Northwest Conference staff and volunteers are working together this year to tell the story of our shared Annual Conference Session at the Red Lion on the River – Jantzen Beach next week. In addition to the production work on-site, we will also be supporting a number of social platforms for those who would like to be a part of the conversation in Portland and beyond.

First things first, the hashtag for the Shared Annual Conference Session is #gnwac17. You can use this hashtag on popular social networks like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to share your thoughts, photos, and to find conversations and posts by others who are attending or following along.

A quick overview of how you can follow along

Updates: To get coverage of the events of each day, visit the Updates blog on the Shared Annual Conference Sessions webpage. We’ll be covering key moments of the conference and any major developments as well. You can also view conference materials on the Downloads page. If you are with us in Portland and would like to offer something for consideration, email:

Live Streaming on YouTube: From most anywhere (with a reliable internet connection), you’ll be able to watch our Shared Annual Conference Session live on Youtube! Key worship services and plenary sessions will be streamed as they happen. Click here to view the channel when we are live. Click here to view the #gnwac17 playlist (we’ll add to it as events occur).

Facebook: Like the Greater Northwest Area and the OR-ID Conference and/or PNW Conference pages to get updates on Facebook. You can read and comment on articles and media as they are posted on each page.

Twitter: You can follow the Oregon-Idaho Conference and the Pacific Northwest Conference on Twitter. You can also mention them in conversations by using their handles: @umoi and @pnwumc

Instagram: Neither conference is particularly active on Instagram but, who knows, maybe this is the Annual Conference where that changes! You can follow the Pacific Northwest Conference to find out. Also, Channels Magazine in the PNW posts fairly regularly and you can get a sneak peak at the worship bulletins for Annual Conference there already!
