A Christ-centered church is one that has a heart to reach its city. It is one that passionately pursues the lost, seeks to meet the needs of those that are hurting, and looks for intentional opportunities to invest in the lives of others.
At Northstar, we desire to spearhead specific serve opportunities while also partnering with strategic ministries who are meeting very real and present needs in our city. We invite you to connect your Life Group, D-Group, or family with these opportunities as we join God’s activity and share in his mission.
You will be my witness in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the Earth.
