Ministries

Committees are a critically important part of the church. They are made up of members of the church community who are dedicated to serving in leadership roles. Each and every role contributes to the success of the church’s ministry and mission.

We’re excited about the missions and evangelism ministries we have in place to share the love of Christ through people just like you—people who want to make an eternal difference with their lives. The opportunities to serve are limitless! We encourage you to prayerfully consider how God can use you.

Ruling Elders

As there were in Old Testament times elders for the government of the people, so the New Testament church provided persons with particular gifts to share in discernment of God’s Spirit and governance of God’s people. Accordingly, congregations should choose persons of wisdom and maturity of faith, having demonstrated skills in leadership and being compassionate in spirit. Ruling elders are so named not because they “lord it over” the congregation (Matt. 20:25), but because they are chosen by the congregation to discern and measure its fidelity to the Word of God, and to strengthen and nurture its faith and life. Ruling elders are also elected by the congregation for a term of three years and are ordained to this ministry for life, even if they aren’t currently serving on Session (that is, the active session of elders).

Deacons

The ministry of deacons as set forth in Scripture is one of compassion, witness, and service, sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress. Persons of spiritual character, honest repute, exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, sincere compassion, and sound judgment are chosen for this ministry. Deacons are elected by the congregation for a term of three years and are ordained to this ministry for life, even if they aren’t currently serving. 

Committees

Worship, Music, and Arts Ministry

Worship Worship lies at the heart of our Northminster faith community.  It is worship that brings us together to glorify God in word, prayer, song, and sacrament. It is worship that leads us out into the world to do Christ’s bidding as loving faithful disciples. Our worship is vibrant; we love creativity and incorporate as many different styles, mediums, and people as possible to lead us in worship. There are opportunities for people of various gifts and talents, as well…

Christian Education Ministry

The Christian Education Ministry of Northminster believes that learning is a continuing process as a Christian. We recognize that developing spiritual practices and growing in our faith can’t be just a “Sunday thing”.  Developing our faith requires effort and energy, and not everyone has time on Sunday morning to attend a class.  Therefore, our Christian Education ministry tries to schedule classes for adults during the weekdays throughout the year for those who find those times more convenient.  Classes are held…

Mission and Outreach Ministry

The Mission and Outreach Ministry is responsible for leading Northminster in acts of mission and keeping the congregation aware of local, national, and international mission needs. The ministry is to inform the congregation of opportunities for giving financial and volunteer support, for carrying out projects extending beyond the congregation, and for giving support to missions and missionaries.

Church Growth

The Church Growth and Fellowship Committee reaches out to embrace first time guests and returning visitors. Church is more than a crowd, it’s a family. The committee strives to welcome in and guide new guests into our church family.

Property Management Ministry

The Property Management Ministry is responsible for the appearance, maintenance, and repair of all church buildings, facilities, and grounds.

Finance and Personnel

The Finance Ministry is responsible for providing financial information to the Session and congregation and overseeing the fiscal operations of the church. It is responsible for the oversight, support, and encouragement of the Personnel Subcommittee.
