For more than four decades, the favor of God has rested powerfully upon Northview. Not a day goes by that I don’t find myself amazed by the legacy and heritage of our church. Our story truly is remarkable. What a privilege it is to be a part of such a move of God!

Nevertheless, I cannot shake the feeling that we still have more to gain, than we have to lose. I believe God is stirring things up within our country. And I am convinced Northview will be at the center of our nation's next great awakening as we continue rising to the occasion.

As I stated recently in a sermon, “I would rather be an overly courageous church, than an overly cautious church.” So let’s continue marching on! For the goal of F1RST is not to accumulate great things, but to accomplish great things.

And this is a legacy season. Welcome to the party, friends. — Let’s go!


Pastor CJ Johnson
Lead Pastor of Northview Church


100% Engagement


How am I influencing the people around me in generosity? How might God be calling me to grow in this area?


Does my lifestyle represent that God is before all things in my life?


How is God inviting me to grow in generosity as an expression of trust, gratitude, surrender and priority?


How am I investing in the things of eternity rather than the things of earth? Would others say I have pointed to Christ in my life, or to me?


Mission Advancement


Together we will invest in our ongoing ministries and trust God to accelerate the life-change that happens through the good work that God is already doing in kids, students and adults.


As a multisite church, Northview has the unique opportunity and responsibility to impact many different communities around central Indiana. We will do this by strategically investing in our campuses and retreat property, by pioneering new and relevant ministries, and by launching into whole new communities.


We want to increase our outreach to our world by increasing our investment in our local and global partner ministries, including Brookside, World Vision, Bright Hope, One Hope, International Justice Mission, Filter of Hope, Nehemiah Vision Ministries and others.



We plan to accelerate the life-change happening within our campus walls. Here are a few things we’re already celebrating:

Better Together - Marriage Ministry
$13 Million in debt reduction during F1RST

Uganda Bright Hope

Bright Hope was created in 1968 with the primary mission of providing immediate care to those in crisis situations. It has since evolved to community development through a ministry model that brings hope for today, tomorrow, and eternity through the local church. Bright Hope exists in communities that live on less than $2 a day to help them break out of poverty and find life in Jesus Christ.

Northview has partnered with Bright Hope in Uganda since 2016 and has been honored by the work we’ve joined in. Each year, we offer between three and four teams with focuses such as medical, educational, men’s leadership, family, and marriage.

Ghana International Justice Mission

International Justice Mission (IJM) exists for one purpose: to end slavery. Across the world, they are rescuing those in slavery, restoring them to society, bringing criminals to justice and strengthening justice systems. Northview has partnered with IJM in Ghana since 2016, and together we have seen incredible work accomplished. So far, we have seen over 200 boys and girls rescued from the fishing industry on Lake Volta. We do not send teams with IJM due to the nature and security of their work.

Chambrun, Haiti Nehemiah Vision Ministries

Nehemiah Vision Ministries (NVM) has been serving the community of Chambrun, Haiti since 2004 when Pastor Pierre was burdened for the needs of the community and did not turn away. Since then, NVM has grown into an academy, a healthcare center, and a host for 35-40 missions trips a year. Northview has loved partnering with NVM since 2015 when we first took a vision trip. In a typical year, we send between six and seven GO Teams to NVM. Currently, we send medical, student, educational, English camp, construction, and staff care teams.

World Vision - Ghana

In 2021, Northview was able to partner with World Vision Ghana through a Chosen Campaign. Through the whole campaign, our church was able to give 2,001 children in Agortime Ziope and 657 children in East Gonja the opportunity to choose one of our Northview families as a sponsor. Through our F1RST Campaign, Northview also committed 1.5 millions dollars to WV Ghana to help start their water and sanitation programs. 

With the combination of F1RST giving and our monthly child sponsors, clean water will be brought to these communities five year sooner than projected. In addition, it has allowed WV to break ground on multiple water systems, bringing clean water to 21,000 people by the end up 2023 compared to 3,000 without the F1RST giving. Northview’s partnership will continue to help these villages with clean water, education, and food insecurity.
