Did you know that most of your donations and sponsorships are eligible for a tax receipt? As long as you are not receiving an item or service for your donation, it is eligible for a charitable tax receipt.

We typically issue tax receipts in January and February each year.

Also, any extra money raised above and beyond our goal will be used to continue to missions work we do outlined in our annual missions budget at North Shore Church. This means it will help support the current and future needs of our partners and support any future teams who travel as well.

What is Missions?

Missions is generally thought of as an international initiative but mission is applied locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.

While a majority of our support goes to international efforts, we believe and support prayerfully and/or financially some local lead initiatives, regional opportunities and national priorities of our fellowship.

Missions is being who God has created us to be and sharing the hope and faith we have with the world around us.

We believe in the Great Commission found in Matthew 28:19-20 where Jesus everywhere we go, we should make disciples.

In short, missions is an initiative to make disciples of all nations. This means, kids, youth, adults, seniors from varying backgrounds and cultures.

We know that Jesus came for all people and we are a part of a fellowship of churches and organizations that work to reach all people.

What Do We Do?

We serve with our talents and time locally.

We give financially; and

We aim to go overseas to listen, learn, and serve our global workers.

Who Do We Support?

We have partnered with the Kenyamanyara family for a number of years through prayer and finances. They have served in a variety of capacities but currently, they are serving as the Director at the Village of Hope in Mwanza Tanzania and as church planters at Petra City Church. The mission of Village of Hope is to bring lasting hope to vulnerable children.

As director and administrator for VOH Mwanza, Julius and Jade are involved in the leadership and daily running of the Village. At VOH Mwanza there are currently 86 children between the ages of 3 and 20 including 12 special needs children who are cared for at the Village. Mwanza Pentecostal Church onsite reaches out to the surrounding community as well; sharing the love of Jesus Christ and the hope that is found only in Him.

While Jade sadly passed away at the end of 2020, we are excited to continue to see God use Julius and their three boys in incredible ways. Julius, along with his children, continue to feel a strong call from God to continue the work they began and it is our conviction to continue to support his important God-given work.
