Welcome to the NW District NYI!

Nazarene Youth International (NYI) is the multi-church youth ministry of the Church of the Nazarene.  NYI is organized by the youth ministries of a local area coming together to form a cluster and 6 of those clusters form the District.  Our district, called the Northwest District, is made up of 72 churches across the eastern half of Washington, North Idaho and parts of Oregon.  We love getting together to worship, learn about God, serve others and have crazy fun.  Above is a navigation bar with detailed information on our major ministries.  Below is a calendar with all of our events and important details.  Below and to the right is a form if you have any comments or unanswered questions to send our way.
