North Seattle Church is a faith community that seeks to connect people to the life and mission of Jesus around the globe.

We primarily do this through the development of strategic international partnerships. Listed below is a brief description of our strategic partnerships.

Strategic Partnerships

Mission Twenty-Five 35:

Our Vision is very simple, we firmly believe in living out Matthew 25:35 & 36 "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me." This passage in Matthew is not asking us to be rocket Scientists or to do the impossible, Jesus is asking us to do the common decent thing. When we see someone who is in need, we need to act and do something about it. WE ARE TO LIVE BEYOND OURSELVES AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE. We are making a difference in the northern region ("El Cibao") of the Dominican Republic. 

Our Vision is to Share the Gospel message & plant churches through implementing a solution that addresses the lack of clean water, food sustainability short comings, the limited access to primary healthcare, and the absence of technical and vocational job training for the poor and marginalized in the"El Cibao" region of the, Dominican Republic
