What is the mission statement of North Point Community Church?
"Our mission is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ." We accomplish our mission by creating environments where people are encouraged and equipped to pursue intimacy with God, community with insiders, and influence with outsiders.
How does North Point Community Church carry out this mission?
We have created three environments that will help people take steps toward a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
The Foyer - (Guest)
It's the place in your home that serves as the welcome area for guests and new friends. It's the first step, and it's often your only chance to make your guests feel comfortable enough to return. That's exactly how we've designed our entry environments at North Point Community Church. Our Sunday morning worship services are "foyer" environments. We want our guests to come back, so we do everything with them in mind. These environments are where most people will experience NPCC for the first time, and they serve as the perfect place to introduce newcomers to the life of North Point Community Church. Each area of our church also has its own foyer: middle school has Transit, high school has InsideOut, and families have KidStuf.
The Living Room - (Friends)
Once your guests arrive and are welcomed into your home, you invite them into the living room. Everyone finds a comfortable place to sit, and the interaction begins. This is where you connect with people like yourself. Smaller and more interactive than the foyer environment, this is a real-life, genuine opportunity to begin friendships... just like you would in your home. Married adults have MarriedLife Live -- quarterly events designed to encourage your hearts, draw you closer together and offer you the essentials for a healthy marriage... all in a casual, fun environment. Single adults have FUSiON gatherings. These are monthly or bimonthly social events held in various locations around Atlanta. Each of our student ministries has this type of environment.
The Kitchen - (Family)
What's the most popular room in your house? Where do you end up when friends and family come over? That's right. The kitchen. And that's the kind of environment we're striving for in our small groups: community groups and Starting Point. These groups consist of six to eight individuals or five to six couples who meet regularly for Bible study and prayer and commit to accountability, friendship, and support. This is a safe place to open your heart and share your feelings. It's a safe place to ask tough questions. This is where lasting friendships are made. It's about commitment and strength and security. And we want to help you get there.
What is the best way for me to plug into North Point Community Church?
It is hard to say which is the best way, but two ways are through service on a ministry team or through one of our living room environments (see above). Both of these offer you the opportunity to connect with other people.
What are strategic service teams?
Strategic Service teams are volunteers gathered together to serve within the church. Volunteers are vital to North Point and we look to them to facilitate and potentially lead the environments we have created to help lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Below are several ministry teams that offer you a great way to plug into life at North Point. Contact us at (678) 892-5600 and ask to speak to someone from the ministry you are interested in or click here to fill out the strategic service form and someone will contact you.

Why doesn't North Point Community Church have adult Sunday school?
Our mission is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We feel that this is best done in a true small group atmosphere. There are several reasons why we feel that community groups work better than adult Sunday school.
Not having adult Sunday School helps our members participate in our "Invest & Invite" evangelism strategy.
Home meetings provide safe, predictable environments where no one slips through the cracks. People benefit from the consistency and accountability of small groups. By participating in small groups outside of the regular Sunday morning schedule, adults are free to serve in a ministry area on Sunday mornings.

When and how did the church get started?
for a brief history of NPCC
What form of government does North Point Community Church operate under?
The way we describe the role of government at NPCC is that we are guarded by the elders, guided by the staff, and gifted through the membership. More specifically, the government consists of five teams of people:
- The Elders
- The Stewardship Team
- The Executive Staff
- The Personnel Team
- The Ministry Team Representatives
The elders function primarily as discerners and guardians of the organization. They are not expected to oversee specific projects or ministry areas in their capacity as elders. They function as overseers for the entire organization. The elders evaluate the effectiveness and direction of the organization according to the church's mission, resources, and doctrine.
The stewardship team oversees all financial matters. The senior pastor is accountable to the stewardship team in all these matters and, along with the business administrator, attends these team meetings without voting privileges. The existing members of the stewardship team select new team members. The elders approve new members.
The senior pastor selects the executive staff. The purpose of this group is to determine programming, give vision to the various ministries of the organization, and oversee the day-to-day operations.
The personnel team establishes guidelines for staff salaries. The personnel team is comprised of current or former elders or stewardship team members.
A ministry team representative (MTR) is a volunteer chosen from the leadership of a particular ministry team to represent that group at a quarterly meeting with the senior pastor, the executive staff, and the elders. MTR meetings are a time for an open exchange of ideas and information. An MTR commits to serve a one-year term and may be appointed for an additional term.
