Our mission is to create opportunities for you to make an impact in our community. We are excited for everyone who calls Northshore home to serve their neighborhood and city. We believe wholeheartedly that through this service our good deeds will develop good will—opening doors for the Good News.

Impact Focus Areas

Missions at Northshore is divided up into 3 Impact Focus Areas. For clarity’s sake we have designated colors to represent them.

This area focuses on our desire to help train leaders and disciple believers, as well as develop the necessary ministries to help the body of Christ accomplish the Great Commission.

This focus area represents the ministries focusing on being a blessing to others in our communities with active acts of mercy and justice.

This focus area represents ministries to reach professionals, artists, internationals among us, and a new generation with tools that they will be able to connect with.

Local Impact

Don’t miss the opportunity to live a life of impact. Here is how you can make a difference.


Who is the one person in your life that you would love to see give their life to Jesus? Discover how to share God’s story with these simple tools.


Isaiah 58 team members prepare and serve approximately 200 homeless members of our community each month.


Prison ministry volunteers meet with inmates once a month building relationships that can make an eternal difference in the lives of those needing someone to show them the love of Christ.

Local Outreach Events


Through the Toy Shop and our relationships with the Northshore and Lake Washington School Districts we are serving families in need. Families enjoy a variety of holiday fun activities, hear the Good News of Jesus birth, and bring home toys for their kids.


Wacky Wheelays is a multi-event field day on wheels where fun-loving people, both able-bodied and disabled, come together as one big family to play.



Community SERVE Day is an opportunity for local churches, businesses, and community members to serve together in practical ways. Community SERVE Day is not just a one day event, it’s an “attitude” and “commitment” to reach out and help those who live closest to us.


Summer Block Parties and Game Day Parties are opportunities to connect with those in our neighborhoods and move from stranger to acquaintance to relationship.
