FAQs About Our Mission
What is the mission of Northminster?
Our mission is to make disciples (i.e., education and learning), grow in faith
together (i.e., build a loving, supportive faith community), and serve others in
Christ (i.e., use our many gifts to serve other people). This mission plays out in
many different ways and is a part of everything we do.
Why the focus on serving other people?
The common thread binding all our mission-related experiences together is a
sense of gratitude in response to our many God-given gifts. A thankful heart is
key to rejoicing in what we already have, freeing ourselves to use our many
talents, and seeing and responding to the many needs of other people.
What programs are there?
Depending on your interests, you can choose from a number of opportunities
that range from interacting with children to adults, being inside to outside,
needing muscles to mental power, and everything in between. Some examples
include teaching, backpack ministry, Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, care
for the home-bound, Loaves and Fishes Ministry, children’s chapel/theater/education, and many others.
What if I don’t see a good fit, but there is something else I’d like to do?
Fantastic!! All our mission-related efforts were originally started by someone
with a passion to make it happen. We encourage you to bring it to our
“Connections” time and share your vision of how to respond to God’s gifts.
Habitat for Humanity
Since 1986, Northminster has provided leadership and support in an effort to help families realize their dreams of homeownership. It’s a great opportunity for some very rewarding and often challenging work, great fellowship, and a chance to learn some valuable things you may not ever have to do for a living.
