Northrise Family,

Thank you for your warm welcome. Tracey and I are excited about the future and what God has planned for the next chapter of this amazing journey with Moffat, Doreen and the entire Northrise family. Over the last 40 days, I’ve had the privilege of spending time with Moffat and many of the leaders of Northrise and being reminded of God’s love, faithfulness, provision and goodness. I met some of the amazing people who have been involved since the beginning and took those first steps of faith with Moffat and Doreen. I’ve met other wonderful people who became part of the Northrise story over the last 10 years.
The uniqueness of each person I have met does not surprise me, their common bond does. What I have witnessed is goodness, faithfulness, love, patience, generosity, gentleness and humility or in other words Christ likeness. This common bond, this friendship, this family, is uncommon.
The Northrise family believes that God is doing something very special in Zambia. We should, because He is. Join me in praying for Moffat and Doreen, the faculty and students of Northrise and their families and God’s continued blessing.

Thanking God for what He has done, what He is doing, and what He is about to do,

“..So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love,  may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations.” 

 Eph 3:17-21


Your Northrise story begins with your application, and we can help with the rest.
