North Side exist to bring glory to God by making disciples of all nations, beginning here in Greenwood and extending to the ends of the earth. God, in his infinite wisdom, has chosen to include us in his grand redemptive narrative. Our role is to announce the kingdom of God, to proclaim the endless worth of Jesus and his Gospel to all peoples.
Who are we reaching?
Seven years ago, North Side felt the need to reach across the ocean, link arms with local missionaries, and begin a partnership that would aim to share the Gospel to an unreached people group. We now partner with IMB missionaries on the ground in West Africa to proclaim Christ to the Hausa people. Our goal is to send teams often and consistently to this area so that we might penetrate the darkness of a lost people. We believe that the most effective way to do international missions is through a laser-focus to one area. We want to make the biggest difference we can for the Glory of God with our few years on earth and we think that happens best with a narrowed focus on reaching the unreached.
What is North Side’s strategy for global missions?
Our strategy to accomplish this international is through a strategic partnership with International Mission Board (IMB) missionaries. Through the intentional efforts of praying, giving, and sending we want to concentrate our work in a singular direction. While we are involved in missions on a world-wide scale through the IMB and other projects, most of our energy, money, and time is spent engaging the Hausa people of West Africa.
