Global Outreach

The Global Outreach (GO) Team has been charged with overseeing all of Northgate’s outreach outside of the state of Alaska. A portion of Northgate’s general income is designated for use outside Alaska. The focus is divided between ministries and individuals supported on a long-term basis (anything over 6 months), a short-term basis (6 months or less), development and mentoring future missionaries, organizing and facilitating short term trips for Northgate individuals and like-minded friends from other churches, as well as funding for special opportunities and needs that present themselves.

NGA Funds at Work

Additional Support

The GO Team also uses a percentage of its funds to help those engaging in short-term mission trips (up to 6 months) and mid-term work (6 months-2 years). A “Kairos” fund is also in place to save for one-time opportunities to bless as they arise (i.e. Emergency teams were sent to Sri Lanka following the tsunami).
