Pastor Billy Buisman

District NYI President


The NW District NYI exists to help grow and develop local NYI ministries and everything we do and have is geared toward that purpose. So, regardless of the status, location, style, or size of your local youth ministry, we are here to serve, support, pray, equip, and minister with you for the benefit of all our youth. 

We have several resources:​

  • Information - We regularly communicate via email, phone, mail, and our website. The website is particularly helpful because it includes all important information about our activities, event registration, ministries, and personnel. ​

  • Equipment Trailer - This is a unique resource generously made available to us by the people of our district. It includes commercial grade inflatables, sound equipment, and other tools which can be checked out by the ministry groups of the churches on our district. ​

  • Activities - These are not meant to just fill the calendar. They are designed to help grow our teens and our local churches, so please take a moment to check them out. Below is an overview, but look on our NYI website for details.

    • Spring: District Breakthrough is a spiritual and leadership development event for both teens and adult youth workers.

    • Summer: District Teen Camp is a great week for Jr. & Sr. Highers to be introduced to and/or grow closer to God all while having a blast.

    • Fall: Super 7 is our district all-nighter at the U of I Kibbie Dome! It functions as an excellent outreach event for local churches. 

    • Fall: The Call is a Regional event meant to develop God’s call in a teen’s life. It is held at our regional university, Northwest Nazarene University (NNU) in Nampa, Idaho.

    • Year-Round: Bible Quizzing is a great opportunity for teens to learn the Word.

    • Local youth groups plan many events throughout the year that are open for multiple church involvement, so be aware of those collaboration opportunities.
