What is Go Now Northwest?
Go Now northwest is A sending organization affiliated with the Northwest Collegiate Ministries that desires to send students to the nations both around the world and to their backyard to fulfill the great commission.
We believe that all followers of Christ are called to live missionally, but that college students are at a prime time in their lives where they can easily be sent out to places around the world to share the gospel!
