Northside Church began in 1959 as a group of families meeting in a small house in Jackson, Tennessee. Sixty-two years later we are a church body of over 900 sharing God’s love and making disciples who follow Jesus Christ. Our ministries serve the needs of people not only in Jackson, TN but around the world.
Northside is a welcoming congregation and a safe place to be able to grow, to heal, and to learn how to walk out our life journey with Jesus. There are many opportunities for this congregation to serve and get plugged in. Our congregation comes from a diverse spiritual background with a large number growing up in church settings from many denominations as well as those with non-denominational ties. We are a very lay-driven congregation with spiritual influences such as the Walk to Emmaus.
Externally, our church serves and supports many local non-profit missions and ministries for men, women and children. Our Outreach Missions includes support to a church in Gamasara Tanzania, to El Ayudante in Nicaragua and Live Beyond in Haiti. We support and participate in the Walk to Emmaus. We have been leaders and participants in the City-wide Holy Ground Prayer initiative, Holy week services, Praise and Prayer nights and City-wide Revivals.
Internally, we realize the importance of a strong children’s and youth ministry and have invested heavily into the upcoming generations. Discipleship and training take place through Sunday school classes, bible study classes, confirmation classes, Vacation Bible school, and special church wide spiritual nurturing events etc.
