NorthStar to Launch Mission Center!
The NorthStar Board of Directors voted unanimously to begin the development of a mission center for the Northern Virginia/D.C. region. The vision includes providing group dormitory space for individuals and teams from all across our nation who feel called to serve the D.C./ Northern Virginia area for short term missions. It will be located at Manassas Baptist Church, one of our active NorthStar churches.
NorthStar will work to coordinate mission opportunities with our churches for these teams and can also provide training for urban, multi-cultural engagement. Our NorthStar staff looks forward to hearing about ways mission teams can partner with your church through this exciting initiative.
