“Ordinary People Making an Extraordinary Impact for Jesus”
We are excited to share opportunities for you to make an impact in our community for Jesus. Our goal is that every person who calls Northshore home will love and serve their neighborhood and city. You, your family and your small group can help transform our community by championing a cause you believe God is calling you toward. We believe good deeds change us and open doors for the Good News. If you need assistance contact Tim King.
