The Upper Columbia Conference has launched a Zoom prayer ministry of support.

A Look Designed For Clarity, Inspired By You

The North Pacific Union Gleaner began as a church newsletter more than a century ago. It has grown and changed over time. Now, more than 20 years after taking the publication online, our digital offerings are more comprehensive than ever as we seek to share news and inspiration from six Seventh-day Adventist conferences across five states.

The new Northwest Adventists digital brand is the next step in our effort to communicate clearly about who we are and connect with the people we serve. In the coming weeks you will notice a shift away from names like GleanerNow and GleanerWeekly and instead will see a single brand of Northwest Adventists.

Be assured you can expect the same award-winning content across all our digital channels sharing breaking Adventist news, encouragement, inspiration and Northwest events.
