PASTOR VERN SAILE
The mission of our church is to Bring people to Jesus Christ, Build them up in that relationship, and Send them out to change lives. Jesus sends us into the world to make a difference in our families, workplaces, local communities and the world. Ever since Jesus gave the apostles “The Great Commission” (Matthew 28:18-20) followers of Jesus have been seeking to share the good news about Jesus wherever he sends us.
In the Free Methodist Church that often means participating in VISA. VISA stands for “Volunteers in Service Abroad.” This can mean anything from a short-term mission trip of a week or two, or commitment to a longer period of service should God call you to that.
This website is designed to help you learn about what Northgate has already done in this area of missions, as well as what we are currently involved in and what we are planning in the future. As you browse through these pages, you will want to be in prayer for the individuals and projects that you read about, but you will also want to be in prayer, asking God how he’d like you to be involved. Going on a short-term, VISA mission trip can be a life-changing experience, opening our eyes to what God is doing around the world, challenging and strengthening our faith, and blessing us as we engage with Jesus’ call to “make disciples of all nations.”
