13th Annual Mid Valley Men's Conference

February 24-25, 2017


Celebrating its 13th year, the Mid-Valley Men’s Conference is pleased to bring back popular speaker, Bill Butterworth. Joining Bill will be his son, Jesse, a pastor and gifted musician.

Bill Butter worth is an award-winning communicator whose speaking, columns and books are providing education and encouragement to people throughout North America. Through the wit, warmth, and realism of his presentations, he brings love, laughter, and hope to his audiences. Bill and Jesse plan on sharing separately and together on the conference theme of Building Bridges: Your God; Your Mate; Your Children and One Another.

The Mid-Valley Men’s Conference brings men together to promote unity, fellowship and spiritual growth through inspired Bible-teaching and worship. Straight-talk from past speakers such as Jeff Kemp, Steve Farar, Bob Reccord, Stu Webber, H.B. London, and A.C. Green challenged men to strengthen their walk with Christ and share what they learn in their home churches and communities.

Come join with men from the Mid-Valley for a time of unity, worship, biblical teaching, and fellowship with the aim to become men of God an leaders in our homes, churches, and communities.

Begin planning now to bring your sons, grandsons, neighbors, and friends. Group rates are available.



Bill holds a Bachelors degree from Florida Bible College and Maters’ degrees from both Dallas Theological Seminary and Florida Atlantic University. He was on the faculty of Florida Bible College for eight years and Director of Counseling Ministries at Insight for Living, the radio ministry of Chuck Swindoll, for seven years.

Bill maintains a heavy speaking schedule made up of conventions, banquets, conferences, retreats, businesses, churches, and school-sponsored lectures, including such corporate clients as Disney, Microsoft, American Express, Ford Motor Company, 26 teams in the National Football League, 14 teams in Major League Baseball, and 6 teams in the National Basketball Association.

In the world of public speaking, he has been honored with the Hal Holbrook Award, presented by the International Platform Association. He is one of the select few to be called “Top Rated Speaker of the Year.”


Jesse is the lead pastor at Rain City Church in Bellevue, Washington. He and his wife, Marisa, started Rain City in 2011 with the hope of creating a place where spiritual orphans, misfits, and burnouts would feel at home. As a musician, songwriter and performer, Jesse also has a passion for music. A four-time Dove Award nominee, but, sadly, not a winner. Jesse’s written songs that are sung in churches across the world…some have been number one on the Billboard charts!

A graduate of Azusa Pacific University, Jesse has finally embraced his Northwest roots by becoming an all out Seahawks 12th man. Jesse and his wife live in Kirkland with their three children (Bill’s grandchildren).
