Throughout the years, North Central Church has taken great joy in supporting missionaries near and far. The work performed by the missionaries we support helps bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to groups of people all over the world. For 2020, we pledged to support 16 worldwide missionaries, as well as several missional groups and programs. We are so very grateful for all the support we receive from our North Central Church family in this global mission, and would like to invite you to consider making a Faith Promise so we can support each missionary at 100% of our promise.

Chris and Rebecca met at Northpoint Bible College in the fall semester of 2005. After a friendship between them began to develop they discovered they were both at Northpoint for the same reason: because of the Lord’s call on their lives to live and serve Him in the Netherlands.
Married now and with their three boys (Charlie, Oliver and Henri), they moved to the Netherlands in May, 2012. Inspired by the words of Isaiah 40:5, their vision is to see a true Gospel movement take place in North Holland because they know that, "the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all will see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken."

99ONE exists to expose God’s love to sex workers in Central New York. We have built relationships with 8 strip clubs in the Syracuse area. Every 4 weeks or so, we bring gifts of love (aka ‘love bombs’) to the dancers (also owners and bouncers). Our intention is not to judge the people we encounter; we are simply reaching out in God’s love, no strings attached. Our purpose is to let our friends know that there is a God who loves them desperately and deeply. We hang out with these incredible ladies. We pray with them and for them.
