Senior Pastor

Our desire here at Northside is to courageously communicate uncluttered Christianity.

We like to keep the main thing the main thing. That is simply : Who is Jesus and what does it mean to follow Him?

I believe the Church is the antidote for isolation. I mean where else do you encounter a diverse gathering of people across all ages and all parts of our society?

More importantly it’s a place of purpose.
Communally – As we encounter something beyond ourselves.
Individually – as you progressively discover yours…

I hope to meet you if you happen to drop by.
