Partnering together to serve others

Serving at Northview is a great way to use your gifts while getting to know others! We encourage everyone to be a part of a Team so they're serving consistently in a way that is meaningful. 

Teams at Northview vary in size and serving frequency. There are two types of Teams at Northview: Inside Teams and Outside Teams.

Inside Teams

Inside Teams focus on serving in the different ministry areas of our church. These Teams help make possible the ministry that happens at Northview every week.

Setup & Teardown

Sunday mornings are bustling at our portable Northview campuses, which are currently Westfield and Indy North.

Uganda is one of the poorest countries in the world and has suffered greatly due to political instability and economic decline over the years.

We will partner with Bright Hope to engage with the local church in fighting extreme poverty through community transformation initiatives being lead and mobilized by local pastors.
