2021 Northpoint Missions Conference

In 1975, five Corona families gathered together with the desire to plant a church to impact their community for Christ. 46 years later, Northpoint stands as a testimony to the Sovereign plan of God and what He can do with people following His will.

Beginning Thursday, April 22, and running through Sunday, April 25, we will celebrate our 2021 Northpoint Mission Conference by looking back at the Lord’s faithfulness to be encouraged to move forward with confidence into the future through NP’s local and global missions ministry. “A Look Back, A Look Ahead: The Past with a Future.”

Missions

All people matter to God; therefore, they must matter to us. We at Northpoint are devoted to the good news of forgiveness through Jesus Christ, the only message of life for the world. We will take this message to those who need it regardless of where that may be. Our desire is that God makes us a church that is moved by the needs of people and motivated to respond with compassion and prizes God’s glory more than anything this world has to offer. Each year, our congregation sends a number of people on short-term missions trips throughout the world and supports a number of full-time missionaries ministering around the globe.

Short-Term Mission Trips

Carranza, Mexico

Around Northpoint, everyone knows that Carranza is a “colonia” on the outskirts of Mexicali, Mexico. Carranza is the community that Mt. Sinai Baptist Church calls home.  Carranza is where Pastor Antonio Camarillo lives and serves Jesus.  As the pastor of Mt. Sinai Baptist Church he leads the church in making and nurturing disciples in Carranza.  Northpoint partners with Mt. Sinai Baptist church all year long, but twice a year we send a team from Northpoint to help in neighborhood evangelism, encourage the church family, and help church members build new relationships with the Carranza community.  Our goal in supporting the Mount Sinai Baptist Church is to help them become more effective gospel “lights” in their community. Our intent is never to bring down the “show” with us but to support them in their ministry to their local community. It generally involves serving alongside our Mexican brothers and sisters in Christ as we share testimonies, perform service projects, hold carnivals, and present the gospel in all types of venues. Pastor Antonio is also heavily involved in starting new Awana clubs throughout Mexicali, as well as assisting in church plants; we help him with both as needed.

Our next Carranza Mission Trip is March 13-15. The minimum age for this trip is ten years old (sixth graders and under must be accompanied by a parent). Those who have already gone to Carranza with us can still sign up online HERE, or in the Foyer THIS Sunday, March 1, or at the meeting for ALL team members happening THAT afternoon in the Youth Room, from 3:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. The final, mandatory meeting for ALL team members is Sunday, March 8, in the Youth Room, from 3:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.

The cost is $75.00 ($70.00 per person with two or more from same family) and covers five meals, gasoline, insurance, ministry resources, and supplies. You will need to bring extra money for two on-the-road meals.

The Carranza trip is a great opportunity to expand one’s awareness of the church outside of Corona and to see how the global body of Christ works together.

All team members must have a valid passport. Get the process started now at the Corona Public Library or the Post Office on Grand Avenue.
