WHAT GOD IS DOING IS NOT THE NORM!

And we’re going to celebrate!

We felt God calling each of us to declare Him F1RST … Before all things and to allow the reality of who He is to permeate all areas of our lives. We asked every person to take their next step in discipleship and generosity through F1RST. We launched a bold plan to accelerate the life-change happening within our campus walls, to continue expanding our reach in Indiana as well as to those who have not yet heard about Jesus around the world.

We had high hopes. But we want to tell you, you stepped it up BIG! And that deserves to be celebrated!

So, we’re kicking the F1RST initiative up a notch to celebrate all you’ve committed to do and to say THANK YOU.

On November 1, I’ll be passing the leadership baton to Pastor CJ. And I wholeheartedly trust he will continue leading with the vision of F1RST for years to come. And I can’t wait to see all that God is going to do in this next season through Northview Church.

Northview, we want to change the world. And we know together anything is possible!

Love ya,

Before All Things

For more than four decades, the favor of God has rested powerfully upon Northview. Not a day goes by that I don’t find myself amazed by the legacy and heritage of our church. Our story truly is remarkable. What a privilege it is to be a part of such a move of God!

Nevertheless, I cannot shake the feeling that we still have more to gain, than we have to lose. I believe God is stirring things up within our country. And I am convinced Northview will be at the center of our nation's next great awakening as we continue rising to the occasion.

As I stated recently in a sermon, “I would rather be an overly courageous church, than an overly cautious church.” So let’s continue marching on! For the goal of F1RST is not to accumulate great things, but to accomplish great things. 

And this is a legacy season. Welcome to the party, friends. Let’s go!

Does my lifestyle represent that God is before all things in my life?

Uganda Bright Hope

Bright Hope was created in 1968 with the primary mission of providing immediate care to those in crisis situations. It has since evolved to community development through a ministry model that brings hope for today, tomorrow, and eternity through the local church. Bright Hope exists in communities that live on less than $2 a day to help them break out of poverty and find life in Jesus Christ.

Northview has partnered with Bright Hope in Uganda since 2016 and has been honored by the work we’ve joined in. Each year, we offer between three and four teams with focuses such as medical, educational, men’s leadership, family, and marriage.

Brookside

Ghana International Justice Mission

International Justice Mission (IJM) exists for one purpose: to end slavery. Across the world, they are rescuing those in slavery, restoring them to society, bringing criminals to justice and strengthening justice systems. Northview has partnered with IJM in Ghana since 2016, and together we have seen incredible work accomplished. So far, we have seen over 200 boys and girls rescued from the fishing industry on Lake Volta. We do not send teams with IJM due to the nature and security of their work.

Chambrun, Haiti Nehemiah Vision Ministries

Nehemiah Vision Ministries (NVM) has been serving the community of Chambrun, Haiti since 2004 when Pastor Pierre was burdened for the needs of the community and did not turn away. Since then, NVM has grown into an academy, a healthcare center, and a host for 35-40 missions trips a year. Northview has loved partnering with NVM since 2015 when we first took a vision trip. In a typical year, we send between six and seven GO Teams to NVM. Currently, we send medical, student, educational, English camp, construction, and staff care teams.
