Connecting people with Jesus

A Mindset for Mission

Northminster, through the leading of the Holy Spirit, seeks to be engaged in God’s mission in the world by:

-  Building ongoing supportive partnerships consistent with our mission values.

-  Offering the Northminster congregation classes on mission.

-  Communicating effectively with our congregation about our mission partners and their ministries.

-  Intentionally providing opportunities for our congregation to be involved in mission work through short-term mission trips, conferences, prayer teams and classes on mission.

Northminster Mission Directory

Our NPC Mission Directory is a source of information about the missionaries and ministries with whom Northminster partners. You are encouraged to pray, correspond, volunteer your time and skills, and give financially in support of these mission partners. In doing so, you can take part in the exciting work being accomplished for Christ throughout the world.

Advent Gift of the Heart

Advent Gift of the Heart 2022
Supporting Jesus to the Needy and Joe and Averyl Morris

November 27, 2022–January 1, 2023

Jesus to the Needy Has a New Home

For many years, Northminster has supported mission partners Joe and Averyl Morris and their impactful mission work in South Africa through their organization Jesus to the Needy. Due to circumstances beyond their control and a strong sense of God’s leading, Joe and Averyl are returning to Central America, where they ministered previously! Their ministry in Panama will be similar in many ways to their endeavors in Africa, in that they will be providing medical care and education, and bringing the gospel witness to indigenous people groups throughout the country.

Joe and Averyl are excited to see what God has in store for them and so are we!

Advent Gift of the Heart Recipient

As you can imagine, relocating to another country and setting up a new home base, as they have been doing over the last several months, requires much time and an incredible amount of financial resources. Because we believe in the mission of Joe and Averyl and the Jesus to the Needy ministry, we want to invest in their success. Funds raised during our Advent Gift of the Heart special offering, from November 27–January 1, 2023, will help purchase a used 4X4 vehicle and trailer, enabling remote travel through mountain villages to bring the love of Jesus to those in need.

There are three ways for you to prepare to take part:

1. Pray for Jesus for the Needy.
2. Prayerfully consider an amount you will donate to Advent Gift of the Heart.
3. Share about our efforts with family and friends.


There are several ways to give:

    Local Mission

    "Someone once said, 'A church that is thoughtful about being engaged in mission thinks glocally.' That non-word is made up of two real words; global and local. As I’ve witnessed the growth of our congregation becoming more and more engaged in God’s mission over the years, I’ve seen our 'glocal' imprint become wider, deeper and stronger."
