About Us

The mission of the Young Adult Ministry at Northland is to know Christ, to make Him known, and to help others do the same. Our vision is to be a ministry where every young adult is known and accepted, taught about Jesus, and challenged to grow. We seek to accomplish this mission and vision by structuring the ministry around a "4B Discipleship Path" (see below). The 4B Discipleship Path points young adults to God's Word and to connect to the intergenerational church community.

The Gathering

Our monthly Young Adult ministry event is called, The Gathering. Whether you're married, engaged, or single, every college student and 20-something is invited to join the Young Adult ministry. No matter where you're at in your faith journey or what your story is, we believe that God has something for you. Join us at Northland Baptist Church every 4th Tuesday for a night of worship, teaching, food, and making new friends.

Not a Church Within a Church

The young adult ministry is not a church or a church within a church; it is a front door to the church. Therefore, it's our goal to constantly shepherd young adults towards an intergenerational discipleship path that allows them to grow in their faith in the context of the broader church. When it comes to environments for spiritual growth, circles are better than rows. This is why connecting young adults to intergenerational life groups is a priority in the young adult ministry.

LifeGroup leaders at Northland are led by the Pastor of Discipleship to leverage their groups as the primary engine for discipleship in the context of authentic community. For young adults looking for an application beyond Sunday morning services and The Gathering, intergenerational LifeGroups exist to connect us to God’s Word and His community. By placing an emphasis on plugging young adults into the greater church community, we set ourselves up to develop healthy and mature relationships with all ages.
