The Presbytery of the Northwest

The Presbytery of the Northwest is one of the presbyteries of the Orthodox Presbyterian Churches. The presbytery is made up of churches and mission works in Alaska, Alberta, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. See a map of our regional church.

The presbytery works together for the encouragement and building up of the body of Christ in this region. It helps to plant new churches in the area and cares for existing churches. It has the responsibility of examining and ordaining candidates for the ministry of the Gospel. It has a role in promoting the spread of the gospel throughout the world. The presbytery serves as a court of appeal in cases of disagreement with a decision of a local church. This holds pastors and elders accountable to the larger body.
