North Avenue Presbyterian Church has a rich legacy of missions. We engage the city, befriend internationals and partner with the global church seeking to become a people of embodied presence among the materially poor, refugees, international students, and the church in difficult areas of the world. Read more about NAPC Missions' strategic plan and partners here.
We have multiple First Serve opportunities throughout the year that serve
as an on-ramp to explore how you can engage in mission with a NAPC Mission Partner.
North Avenue offers many ways for you to engage with Mission.
See upcoming 2017 opportunities to serve in Mission here.
