Ways to Serve

In Your Community

In Your Community

We carefully select Local Outreach Partners in each of our communities that affect positive change in food insecurity, education, and at risk youth and families.  As you pursue God’s calling on your life, we want to help you get involved with the causes you care about most.

Serve
In the City

In the City

Largely focused in close proximity to downtown Indianapolis, we seek to bring hope and dignity that ministers to all types of poverty. Partnering with amazing organizations, our hope is to see individuals and families receive support that impacts spiritual, financial, emotional and physical change.

Serve
At Your Campus

At Your Campus

Many families in the communities surrounding our campuses struggle with food insecurity, meaning they don’t know where their next meal will come from. It is our desire to be a part of the solution in eradicating hunger in our communities. The Yellow Bag Initiative at Northview seeks to meet the hunger needs in our communities through relationships with community partners who minister directly to those in need. At every campus, you will see a rack of yellow bags that you can take and fill with food items during the week to return the following weekend.
