Outreach & Missions
MINISTRIES

North Haven Church is responding to the Great Commission by reaching those around the world and in our own backyard. Take a look at some of the ministry and volunteer opportunities we're involved with below.

Operation Christmas Child

North Haven Church has partnered with Operation Christmas Child.

 

A team from North Haven works diligently throughout the year to make our annual packing party event a success along with our church family. Over the years, we have packed thousands and thousands of shoe boxes that made it into the hands of children all over the world. These children go on to hear about Jesus and experience his love.  There are many volunteer opportunities for all ages and abilities.

School Bus & Children
Richardson Elementary School

Over 70% of students at Richardson are on free/reduced lunch.

 

We pack backpacks with food and snacks because we don’t want to see them hungry in their own homes. We also see other unmet needs and strive to come alongside the students and families to see them succeed.

Bruce & Julie Adamson
Converge

The Adamsons have been missionaries for many years with Converge. Currently, they are focused on reaching the Diaspora (immigrants/refugees living within foreign countries), comprised of several cultures.

 

Previously, they served in the Ivory Coast, AF, and worked with university English learners in Senegal, AF.

 

The FS2G Initiative - Twin Cities is in catalytic partnership with local Converge churches to implement a city strategy for multiplying disciples among the least-reached nations next door.

Lucio & Vanita Berumen

Lucio and Vanita are serving at a church in Worthington, MN, along with their three sons-Josue (12), Josiah (9), and Caleb (3).

 

Their ministry is also focused on Leadership Development in Latin America. Over the years, they have established many connections as they’ve traveled to over 40 countries, ministering to people who have hearts to serve God. Many do not have adequate training due to language barriers and financial barriers. But God has led the Berumen's to fill this gap. They've been using new strategies for discipleship and coaching as well as translating those resources into Spanish.

Ken & Linda Danielson

Pastor Ken Danielson and his wife Linda serve as Converge North Central Missionaries to Native families around the Lake of the Woods area of Minnesota and Canada. The ministry is twofold, a church plant in Warroad, MN, named "All Nations New Life Center" that serves the Native and local community through Bible study, worship, and prayer. The second half of the ministry includes Bible Study, Bible School, and door-to-door evangelism on Canadian reserves on Lake of the Woods.

 

They desire to see lives changed through God's Word and loving relationships, to see forgiveness and worship of our Lord, and to see Native elders and pastors raised to preach and declare freedom in Christ.

Paul & Amy Lindberg
Talking Bibles

Talking Bible's mission stems from a strong conviction that everyone in the world needs access to the Bible. Talking Bibles aims to give non-readers and the blind access to the Bible in their native language.

Paul Lindberg, through Talking Bibles, serves the Lord Jesus Christ by producing audio recordings of translated Scriptures in hundreds of languages and making these recordings accessible in the form of Talking Bibles for millions of people around the world who cannot read.

The readings are taped and then processed to be used in an encased, solar-powered speaker. As a result of this ministry, many become believers in Jesus as their Savior.

The Apparent Project

The Apparent Project is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to empowering Haitian families through merchandise sales, childcare, early education, and job skills training.

 

The Apparent Project also seeks to build future leaders in Haiti, committed to creating leaders of integrity and godly character.

 

They also work to make the needs of Haiti apparent to people who want to help while inspiring the adoration of our loving Father God. And through the work of The Apparent Project, the hope is that Jesus will be apparent to all in this beautiful country.

Why I Am

WHY I AM is a local Christian non-profit that works with youth and young adults ages 12-24, teaching them life skills, job readiness, and engaging them in leisure and recreational activities.

 

Their mission is to help the youth and young adults grow into positive and productive adults, by giving them essential life skills training and experiences that they might not otherwise have access to. One of their goals is to offer these activities at no cost to the youth, young adults, and their families. Some of these activities include: Healing Trauma Circles (guides teens in life skills); Personal, social, and employment etiquette workshops; Archery, boating, fishing, and water recreation; Personal growth camping trips; Community service projects; and Financial literacy workshops and seminars.

The Respite.png
The Respite

The Respite at Halibut Cove exists to give pastors and church leaders the time and space to rest.

 

They are located in Halibut Cove, Alaska: a beautifully restful place where the mountains meet the sea. The Respite combines their experience and knowledge of ministry with the quiet and rest of a solitary place to offer renewal and recalibration for ministry professionals experiencing distress, burnout, and the overwhelming weight of shepherding in these times.

More than just a much-needed and well-deserved vacation, The Respite is a resource to those entrenched in wearying patterns, enabling ministry leaders to discover a trajectory that keeps them going without falling apart.

Destiny Rescue

Destiny Rescue’s mission is to rescue kids from sexual exploitation and human trafficking and help them stay free while simultaneously revealing to those rescued the unending hope of Jesus Christ.

 

They do this through our rescue operations and reintegration programs. Destiny Rescue is active in countries where the need to save is great.

 

Because of their committed supporters, their rescue and reintegration staff bring freedom, hope, and healing to children around the clock – day and night!
