Global and Local Outreach

Our Global and Local Outreach (GLO) partners are ministries and individuals all over the world that we strategically support in their endeavors for Jesus. We choose our partners carefully based on 3 specific aims (UUPGS, Gospel Driven Justice & Revival in the SF Bay Area) because we believe that Jesus is the hope of the world and we want all people, everywhere to have the opportunity to know Him. Sign up for our monthly GLO Newsletters HERE.

Unreached, Unengaged People Groups (UUPGS)  

UUPGs are populations where less than 1% of people have had access to any Christians and they have no church planting movement or strategy. These are the groups of people who have never even heard that Jesus existed, let alone had an opportunity to know Him. We hope to be a part of spurring on indigenous church movements that do not require Western missionaries, but rather utilize committed locals who understand the culture and language to see the Gospel spread.

Gospel Driven Justice

We care deeply about justice because God does. We partner with people who are meeting a need in the global community for the purpose of sharing the love of Jesus. Additionally, we hope to be able to send our New North congregants to participate in these endeavors when they can.

Revival in the San Francisco Bay Area

Through our giving and support of local partners, we hope our congregation can be actively involved in a wide variety of ministries here, in our own backyard. Our church is full of people with different passions and gift sets, and there are dozens of opportunities for us to use those passions right where we are for the sake of the Kingdom of God.

D & N

Affiliation: TMS Global, Southeast Asia

D and N live in a Southeast Asian area where their work for the Kingdom proves to be sensitive and potentially compromising. Both D and N strive to meet locals and build relationships, while running a fellowship for people to attend and learn about Christ.

They have many stories of people curious and excited about Jesus, and some have even chosen to be baptized. D and N’s work provides an opportunity for people to learn and grow in community. Both are working diligently to learn the written and verbal language so that they can better communicate the love of God with those who want to know more and those who have come to faith and want to go deeper.
