Partnership information

Learn about partnership

Partnering is an active way to be used in God’s kingdom. Every member of Christ’s body has a vital role to play, and we love to see each part playing their part! To get a better sense of how this looks and who we are check out these resources:

Partner with us

Step 1. Getting to know each other’s stories: Begin connecting with others at NPBC.
Step 2. Learning about partnership: Attend a “Partnership Exploration” with an elder, staff member, or GROW group leader to go over the details of partnership. (See next dates and sign up to attend here!)
Step 3. Demonstrating the partnership commitments: Demonstrate the partnership commitments and submit the Ministry Partner Commitment form (online, PDF) to the office.
Step 4. Recommendation from GROW group leader: Ask your GROW group leader to submit a recommendation (online**, PDF) to the office.
Step 5. Affirmation from elders: Elders meet with you to finalize the recommendation. Upon approval, we will send you an official notification of partnership.
** Note that, for your leader to submit the recommendation online, you will first need to contact them with the following:
• Share briefly about your spiritual journey. What do you believe about Jesus Christ?
• Please tell us about your baptism. When were you baptized, and why did you decide to do that? (Or, please share why you haven’t yet decided to be baptized.)
