Global  Missions

Northstar works toward fulfilling our global vision by sending short-term teams and long-term missionaries. Our primary aim in sending is to help start churches where they do not exist or to empower the local church to fulfill its mission.

Dominican Republic

Partnering with DR Vision, the team in the Dominican Republic seeks to make a reproducing impact for Christ throughout the country and all of Latin America. Rooted in the local church, all of their ministries — Las Palmas school, Sports ministry, Mercy Workshop for women, and two local churches — are designed to meet specific needs in the community with the intention of making disciples. Our student team will serve the ministry as a whole with a specific focus at Las Palmas. The adult team will serve in a variety of capacities, as the missionaries assess the needs in the summer.

Greece

Many immigrants and refugees have fled from countries such as Syria, Iran, Congo, Nigeria, Morocco, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Bangladesh because of persecution, war, or economic need. Although the refugee crisis has slowed, many still arrive in Athens seeking asylum or a new life. 

Our short-term teams will support a ministry team of six local believers who make disciples and plant churches among Muslim refugees and local Greeks from Orthodox backgrounds. These men, four of whom were refugees, sensed God leading them to stay in Athens to minister to Muslims and plant healthy churches in refugee communities. 

The Athens team operates a training center focused on church planting. Ongoing classes on evangelism and discipleship are offered, and many new believers from the city are discipled there. Four churches worship at the center throughout the week, enabling believers from different people groups to worship Jesus in their own language. 

Join us in supporting this work through prayer walking, evangelism, teaching ESL classes, and encouraging believers, church planters, and missionaries. 

**This is a vision trip – as we explore this partnership in 2023, trips will be available in 2024.

Guatemala

Guatemala is a wonderful entry-level international experience for those new to missions as well as a powerful, life-changing trip for those more seasoned. There is a combination of medical missions, construction, VBS, food and water filter distribution, and Bible principles taught to the young and old during this trip.  The team will work in two remote villages with no other access to medical treatment, using this need as an entry into their community for holistic support. Long-term relationships have been and are continuing to be developed in these twelve villages through the partnership with La Mision of Guatemala.

Hamtramck, Michigan

Come alongside long-term workers in Hamtramck who have a heart for reaching Muslims for Christ. Check out their ministry HERE. Hamtramck was the first city in the United States to have a Muslim-majority population, and the call to prayer from the Mosque is audible to the entire city. During the trip, you will learn about the context of ministry in this 2 square-mile town that is 50% Muslim and 50% impoverished, help with projects on their urban farm, and intentionally engage with those in the city by sharing the love of Jesus. This is a wonderful cultural immersion experience for those who are willing to be a learner.

Togo

The 6 Degree Initiative (6DI) is a church planting movement focusing on the unreached people groups just north of the equator in West Africa. This area has been greatly impacted by Voodoo and the exportation of human life through the slave trade. The missionary team partners with national leaders to plant churches in the least-reached cities of the region. 

There are 5 projects currently with the 6DI: Togo church planting, Benin church planting, Palms Kids Camps, Deaf Project, and Vocational Training Center. Our teams will serve in one or some of these projects depending on the needs of the missionaries.
