Our Global Impact effort is led by the Bridge to the Nations team. This team exists to serve others outside of building walls and raise awareness through prayer and engagement with our strategic partners all over the world.

Multiple times a year, we equip and send teams to our cross-cultural partners. In 2020 we have some great opportunities you can learn more about below.

What is an Advocacy Team?

An Advocacy Team is a group of Northbridge people committed to supporting one of our mission partners. This team is a group of 6-12 individuals who take the responsibility to coordinate our church’s support and encouragement of our Mission Partners and to serve as their representatives to the NorthBridge Church body.

What is the Advocacy Team responsible to accomplish? 

There are two major aspects of the Advocacy Team’s: care and representation. The success of an advocacy team depends on its ability to accomplish these two goals from the time that the mission partner prepares to leave for the field until his or her return. This would include prayer, care packages, emails, support of projects and initiatives. Please reach out to Pastor Lance for more information lance@northbridgechurch.org


YWAM

Heather Kuhl is on the verge of pioneering a new YWAM (Youth With A Mission) base in Broome, which is in the Kimberley area of Western Australia.  This is a major undertaking God has been preparing for some time.  Read more of her story…

 

Heather Kuhl, one of our family in the field missionaries! Hear her heart as she shares an update on this historic move:

 

God has put a desire in my heart to work with Aboriginals since I started teaching in 2007. When I came to do DTS at YWAM in 2012, I went to the Kimberley for the first time on my outreach. I fell in love with the place and the people. Since then, I joined staff and have been praying and asking God when I can go. When a couple moved up in 2014, I asked God, “Is now the time? Can I go?” He told me to be patient and wait. I have been asking and waiting and at one point the pastor shared a word about getting out of the boat and stepping out in faith. I thought for sure this was when God would speak, but He said to invest 100% in Perth and 100% in the Kimberley. So that’s what I did. Then through that is when God spoke.
I now see how God has taken me through a training process. A time of consecration. Over the years, my relationships with people have grown and the depth of them has happened. It is amazing to see all that God is currently doing. The timing is right to be present and really be there with the people. The more I share with locals, the more excitement and confirmation I hear. There is a need and God is sending us to help with what He is already doing there.

 

YWAM Broome is a base founded on Biblical Principles that engages and empowers local and international peoples through evangelism, training, and mercy ministries for the purpose of making disciples that will transform communities, towns, and cities in Australia and beyond.

 

Please pray for Heather as she leading the team to launch soon. Pray for finding housing and building relationships as they launch a new team and new ministries.

 

The YWAM Broome team has some immediate financial needs including purchasing a vehicle and housing.  If you are interested in supporting this ministry, they have specially designed apparel and merchandise that can be purchased directly on line and shipped to you.  Not only would you be supporting a great ministry, you will be able to sport some fun new shirts!

 

Please contact Dorothy Collings if you would like to join other NorthBridgers in regularly praying for and encouraging Heather. They just met yesterday September 2nd at 7:00 pm. dorothycollings89@gmail.com
