Northside Missions

How much of a difference can you make? More than you think! Northside Missions exist to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth. Together, we are making a lasting impact in the communities we serve.


...they will receive power from the Holy Spirit, and they will be His witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. We believe the same is true today.

We are called to reach our city, our state, and our world. 

Through Northside Missions, you have the opportunity to share the good news with people in our community and  all over the world.  . And because we partner with churches and organizations, the work we do on the ground continues after we come home. Working together, we get to see the Great Commission happening before our eyes.

Saying yes to missions won’t just change others — it’ll change you, too. 

Mission trips transform the people who go as much as they help the people we serve. Seeing God work around the world will expand your understanding of who He is, how much He loves you, and the power of the Gospel.
