I was sick and tired of waiting for bad things in life as a reason to come to God so I impulsively made the decision to dive right in and declare my commitment to God and proclaim my personal relationship with Him in front of the church. New North is a big reason why my relationship with God is something that I value higher than all things on earth now. The entire community makes me feel welcome by the way they treat me and are open to who I am! Once I was shy in sharing about what I believed, but now I can come to my savior broken knowing he died for me and still loves me. Baptism gave me the confidence to live out my faith…

Worship & Creative Pastor
This year brought a refreshed commitment to gathering, and has renewed our sense of depth and awareness of God's presence as the body comes together for worship. At the same time we also continue to serve people well online with a heart to reach more in the bay area and beyond. We saw many come back to church in person, and continue to see many new people discover New North Church for the first time.
We’ve gone through 7 teaching series within the last 12 months together.
Rebuild: Lessons from 2 Corinthians
A series focused on the letter to the Church in Corinth to remind us of God’s power through weakness, grow us in unity, inspire our generosity, and encourage us to live life in light of the cross.
Fear Not - Advent w/ New North
A series that examines the main characters of the christmas story and how they all point to the peace, hope, love and Joy Jesus brings.
A Place At The Table
A series meant to give us an intimate look of who Jesus is and his last words to his disciples before his crucifixion in John 13-17.
Acts A series that explores the implication and importance of embodying the Gospel according to the book of Acts.
The Pursuit Of ____
An Easter message reminding us that Jesus is pursuing us.
As I look back over this year, in terms of preaching, one of the things I am most thankful for is our amazing preaching team. Very few churches have a deep bench of qualified preachers beyond the Lead Pastor but we are blessed with several! I love working with our preaching team and appreciate their insight into the Scriptures. When you get a moment, make sure to thank them for teaching us the Word of God.view past messages here

“A few months ago, I was on my way to meet a friend when I got into a car accident. My nose was broken, my car totaled, and I was completely overwhelmed to say the least. I still am in awe of the way people from my small group showed up for me. From dropping off food, sharing pups to cheer me up, and frequent check-ins, I was overwhelmed by all the love and support. They demonstrated God’s genuine love and kindness to me. Coming to church weekly, and taking the step into further community reminded me that I was not meant to live life alone. I still can’t imagine my life without my community group, and thank God every chance I get for them.”

CG is the perfect atmosphere to allow God and the Holy Spirit to work in your life. It has allowed me to grow in different ways than I could have on my own. When you cultivate vulnerability with Godly relationships, I've seen authentic and intentional accountability and fellowship grow.

Student Ministries Pastor
This past year was amazing. We officially kicked off our generations ministry in-person at our location in SF. This allowed us to officially have a consistent form of discipleship for our students on Sundays and at Life Groups on Wednesdays. For the first time since the pandemic we were able to take 16 high schoolers to summer camp at Hume Lake! This was so impactful for our ministry from a spiritual standpoint as they learned the story of Moses and how to hear from God. Relationally so many bonds of friendship were formed that continue to exist to this day. We couldn’t be more excited about what God has done and continue to do in our High School and Middle School ministry.

Trunk or Treat at our San Francisco Campus
Sundays with New North Kids
Park Days with Teacher Sam
The new normal in New North Kids meant a lot of new and returning families getting acquainted and comfortable at our San Francisco campus. While Park Days continued, it was great seeing kids and families back on site in full force in our Sunday School classes! We also had more events that encouraged our families to get up and get out as we celebrated both at the campus, and through different group and volunteer opportunities in our community. We are excited to have built what we did this past year to help us as we plan and look forward to different and even bigger things as we grow together
