MULTIPLY

At Northern Hills Church our mission is to be people who are living and leading toward God. Another way of communicating this mission would be to say that our mission is to be disciples of Jesus who are making disciples of Jesus. A disciple at Northern Hills Church is defined as one who is shaping their own life, and other’s lives, around the teaching and example displayed in Jesus. A disciple is moving and multiplying their life. Disciples are focused on connecting, growing, serving, and multiplying.
