But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you;

and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria,

and to the ends of the earth." - Acts 1:8

The Primary Step Out Initiative:

 

Elevate Northminster Online to major ministry status, and in particular, adding a live streaming product that evidences high quality and a personal feel.  By high quality we want the video and audio to feel as if you were here. By personal, we mean you can see the face of a musician, liturgist, or preacher. If a person can’t be at church, our goal is that that person feels like the church is with them. We will be livestreaming both services. 

 

Supporting initiatives are:

 

Extending our Front Porch through outreach, with a particular focus on local schools and local community

 

Improving our communications and technology, with a particular focus on outward directed communications.

Join with the rest of the church in a chapter-a-day from the bible commitment.  Greg is providing a reading schedule that will touch most of the major themes and all of the books. These are the words of Jesus…"If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples!” Frankly, it is unlikely to succeed without God

We envision everyone at Northminster having a ministry through which they give themselves away, and a place to be refilled, restored and grow.  This is Biblical and sustainable.

To realize the Big Step vision, we will need God, the efforts of the majority of our members, AND we will also need substantial inflows.  It is after all a BIG STEP.   We project a 20% increase in the operating budget would fill the gap.  This would be followed by a capital campaign for facility improvements that support the vision sometime in ‘22 or ‘23.
