“You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Acts 1:8

Mission Teams at NorthPark focus on ministry and evangelism in our immediate community, as well as in our state, our country, and around the world. Their purpose is to connect people with various mission opportunities, whether ongoing, short-term, or long-term.

Through our Mission Teams, we long to lead others to embrace a habit of living sent for the Gospel of Christ and His Great Commission. In accomplishing this, we seek to partner all our mission teams with the local church, so that they can assist in creating a culture of disciple-making.
