Planting New ChurchesNorthPointe Community Church was started because of the belief that planting churches is one of the primary methods that God uses to grow His Kingdom. We have spent the last 11 years growing the Kingdom in the area where God has placed us. Our prayer is that we would continue growing the Kingdom here by multiplying ourselves as well as by supporting other local church plants. Our vision is that, at some point in the future, we will have a church in each of the school districts represented by NPCC and following that, in each of the school districts represented by those church plants, etc.
We look to accomplishing this goal with several different methods. We support the Baptist Resource Network which funds and supports new church plants around the world and the Multiplying Church Network whose mission is to plant churches in the PA/South Jersey area. We invest directly in the training, mentoring and support of some specific local churches. We are also expecting that the first NPCC church plant is in our near future and are seeking God for exactly where and when He would have us step out in that direction.
Listed below are the church planting organization and the churches we currently support with time, financial and/or human resources.
Multiplying Church Network is an organization dedicated to the mission of planting churches within the PA/South Jersey area by Discovering Places, Developing People and Deploying Partners. Their Vision is that every person who lives within the geographic boundaries of Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey is within a 20-30 minute drive of an evangelical witness or church. If you are looking for resources to aid you in a church plant with this geographical area, visit the website: http://www.pennjerseycp.com.
Riverbend is an exciting new church led by Joseph Velarde. Joe has a heart to reach the third largest metropolitan area (the Lehigh Valley) in Pennsylvania. It has been our honor to give monthly financial support and to see them grow and multiply. Visit their website: www.riverbendonline.org.
Pottstown Bible Church is located in downtown Pottstown and has a large ministry to the homeless and the poor of that area. NPCC gives monthly financial support to PBC and the people of NorthPointe regularly volunteer their time and resources to assist PBC's ministry. PBC's website is: www.pottstownbible.org.
