NorthStar Church missions trips help us connect with others as we partner together to build the Kingdom of God. Join us and help make a difference as we share in what God is doing around the world!
Making a Difference Around the World
Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Most people speak Creole and 80% are illiterate. A big part of our work there is to provide education, food and medical care to the children who live in tents and the poorest areas.
We have several trips planned to NorthStar Haiti, which is led by Steve and Esther Saintus. Our work will be done in Croix Des Bouquets which is located just outside Port Au Prince. We will stay at the Saintus’ guest house and live family style with wonderful, homemade meals. We always make security, health and safety a top priority.

When you sponsor our children in Haiti, it will go to the children who attend church and school at NorthStar. They will receive a quality education, two meals a day, school books, uniforms and school supplies.
They will also hear the gospel in their bible classes. When they are sick, they will receive medicine as well as a daily vitamin. These are children whose families live off $1.00-$2.00 a day. Without this school or church, these children have no hope.

We are partnering with Saving Susan in Zacapa, Guatemala. Here we will work with an orphanage of severely abused children who have been taken from their families to ensure their safety.
We also are able to go to communities around the orphanage to give their stoves for their houses and food to eat.

When you sponsor a child in Guatemala, you’ll be matched with orphans in countries whose borders are closed to adoption due to human trafficking. It is a relational experience that also provides financial support. It is a commitment to build relationships through regular social media contact and to care for an orphan as one of your own children. This commitment creates a covenant relationship intended to exist at least until the orphan graduates from school.

NorthStar is partnering with Builders for Christ to work at 7th Mile Farm this year, a home for foster boys. This is a construction trip, but there are countless tasks to be done that do not require construction experience. Additionally, if you lack experience but want to work, this is great opportunity to be paired with experienced people and learn. Families with kids of all ages are welcomed!

El Salvador is a beautiful country that often loses its young men and women looking for more opportunities in the U.S. . This often leaves children behind to live with aging grandparents and gives them little supervision.
One major problem is that gangs become that family unit they miss so much. Our hosts Jorge and Anna.
Puerto Rico is a great place to start missions. Although you feel you are in a foreign country you really are still in North America. No Passport needed. You can still find stores and things you might need on the trip.
Food is fantastic and it is truly beautiful. Puerto Rico has been wrecked by hurricane Maria and the last earthquake.
Missions Behind the Scenes
Stitch and Nail
This is missions group that will be making projects to help those in poor countries. One of the first projects will be making a women’s hygiene kit to be taken to countries overseas. You don’t need to be able to sew because we have folding, ironing and putting kits together. All materials are furnished. These kits will then be used to teach the women how to make them giving them a skill.
We’ll begin meeting on Tuesday, February 11, then the second
Tuesday every month from 1 – 4pm in the Compass Theater.
