Missions

In Matthew 28:19–20, Jesus gave Christians the Great Commission, which charged them to go into all the world and spread the gospel. At North Metro Church, we believe that one of the primary roles of the church is to share the good news of Christ with the world.

Make a Difference at Home and Abroad

North Metro Church partners strategically with local and global organizations to meet the practical and spiritual needs of those who need to hear the gospel message. We provide financial support to these partners, but also join their work through projects and short-term mission trips.

East Africa and India

In partnership with New Hope Initiative, North Metro Church provides financial and physical support for several projects in East Africa and India.

Arusha, Tanzania

Tanzania is home to two projects supported by North Metro, the Arusha Bible Baptist Academy and the Olorien Community Clinic, which is a well-equipped medical facility that sees up to 3,000 patients on a daily basis. These projects, headed by Pastor Vernon Smith and Dr. Robert Byemba, are helping bring hope, health, and new life to those in Arusha.

Nairobi, Kenya

In the midst of the massive Kibera slum, New Hope Academy is an elementary school for 500 children, as well as a feeding center. The education the children receive prepares them for their secondary school entrance exam. New Hope students who pass the entrance exam will have their secondary school education completely funded by the Kibera Penda Project. The school promises a future and a hope to the children of Kibera.

Project Biashara

Project Biashsara began in 2009 as a way to help women living in Kibera, one of the world’s largest slums, earn an income and provide for their families. What started as a micro-loan project to help these women start small businesses has developed into a full-time, jewelry-making co-op employing more than 30 women from the Kibera slum.

Special Needs Orphanage

The Special Needs Orphanage is a residential home for physically and mentally handicapped children in Southeastern India. The residents are guided on-site by professionally trained and Christ-honoring staff with doctorate-level education in special education. North Metro Church supports the orphanage through its partnership with New Hope Initiative.

Laotian/International Church Plant

Cholo and Victoria Khongrath are church planters working through the North American Mission Board (NAMB) to establish a church in Thornton that reaches the international community in the north metro Denver area. Grace Fellowship International Church meets regularly at North Metro Church.

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Local churches like North Metro join the mission by volunteering and providing shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. The amazing journey of a simple shoebox gift results in evangelism, discipleship, and multiplication.
