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.
Church Planting in Botswana
We are very excited to announce that Northpoint is helping to support the planting of a new church in Africa! The church will be called Gaborone Chapel and is located in Gaborone, the capital city of Botswana. Why Botswana? It is a small country of less than two million inhabitants that you may never have heard of until now. But it is an important country in Africa: it has one of the fastest growing economies on the continent and has one of the highest standards of living. It is one of the few African countries with a real democratic government and low corruption. But prosperity has brought with it problems, including materialism and secularization. Many people have left the old, pagan religious practices of their ancestors, but have not embraced the God of the Bible. However, young people by the thousands are pouring into the capital to study at the university. Their entrance into college is a key moment in their lives. Gaborone Chapel aims to reach many of these students by doing evangelism on campus.
The church planting team has been trained and mobilized by our friends at Nairobi Chapel in Kenya. The all-African team is comprised of Lamaz (the lead pastor), Mike (music), DJ Riley (youth leader and Christian DJ), and Maluki (children’s ministry). Over the next couple of years, we will partner with them in a number of ways. One way that you can participate in the work is by giving. Nairobi Chapel is providing for half of the support of the church and we are raising the other half.
If you would like to see the church coming together with your own eyes, you can watch a brief video here.
Thank you for your support of this exciting new ministry.
Short-Term Mission Trips
Northpoint Church is sending a mission team to take Christ to the people of Greece in the summer of 2017. One way you can help is by purchasing a team T-shirt for $20.00. Proceeds will help us to put on street fairs in Athens and minister to refugees on the Greek island of Lesbos.

Akaki Kale Hewitt School in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Northpoint is excited to partner with the Akaki Kale Hewitt School in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Together as a church, we raise funds each year to pay for the Christian education of around 127 students. Many of these students don’t come from Christian homes. It’s been exciting to see how this ministry has strengthened our partnership with the Christian church in Ethiopia.
Northpoint also makes yearly trips to Addis Ababa to work with the Akaki Kale Hewitt School and Church.
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.
