Outreach Ministries

 

Jesus told his followers to “make disciples of all the nations.” (Matthew 28:19) Northside embraces this charge in a number of ways, including a long-running television program, sending missionaries world wide, and training church members to be effective witnesses of Christ to their friends.

Know Your Bible

In 1986, Northside started a television program called Know Your Bible. It can be seen every Sunday morning at 10:00 on channel 3 in Wichita.  It can also be seen all over Kansas and in Oklahoma, Missouri, Illinois, Colorado, Nebraska, Arkansas, Iowa and South Dakota. (If you don’t live in the Wichita area, check your local listings for time & channel). During the program, a 3-member panel (current and former ministers at Northside) answer Bible questions that have been called in by viewers. Free Bible correspondence courses are offered.  Over the years, thousands of viewers have taken advantage of this helpful tool.  To learn more about KYB, click here to visit the website.

International and Domestic Missions

Northside believes strongly in being the “salt of the earth” and the “light of the world”. One way we do that is by sending missionaries to all parts of the world to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. Missionaries from Northside are currently working in Scotland, Argentina, Mexico, and Minnesota.  We also support World Christian Broadcasting.

Local Evangelism

This is a ministry designed to share the Good News about Jesus with our world.  Leaders coordinate Bible studies and also assist in training Northside members to do the same. If you would like to arrange a home Bible study or would like to receive a Bible correspondence course by mail please contact the church office.

Community Benevolence

Jesus told his followers that “if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple…he will certainly not lose his reward.” (Matthew 10:42)  The Christians at Northside follow this command in several ways. Each October we have an annual “Harvest Sunday” where we collect food and supplies for Carpenter Place, a home serving girls in crisis.  We also cooperate with other churches of Christ in Wichita to operate SIMPLE House, which distributes food and clothing downtown to those in need.

Wichita Workcamp

WWC is an annual service project sponsored by the Wichita area Churches of Christ that brings teenagers, college students, and adults together to repair, scrape, and paint homes for people in need. Wichita Workcamp is an opportunity to put the principle of Christ-like service into action. Christians are called by Jesus to be servant-hearted. Jesus commanded it this way “…whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave– just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:26-28). At Wichita Workcamp, our slogan is “Serving God By Serving People.” We invite you to join in the adventure and make a lifelong impact. To learn more about WWC, click here to visit the website.
