North Way Missions & Outreach
North Way’s outreach focuses on partnering with churches and established organizations to aid in the desperate state of disenfranchised, abandoned, and orphaned children locally, nationally, and globally. We believe that transformation can happen by delivering practical resources to meet needs and developing and implementing long term solutions. We believe that the local church is a vital part of this mission and endeavor to partner with and establish churches that influence and develop indigenous leaders to carry out lasting and growing movements.

Shoes for Orphan Souls - August 22 through Sept 20 * All Campuses
The OrphanCare ministry is collecting NEW shoes for children and youth in their annual Shoes for Orphan Souls drive. Shoes can be dropped off in the lobby August 22 through September 20.Please consider a $5 donation to help with the cost of shipping. Envelopes are available at the shoe drop off locations.
Shoes for Orphan Souls delivers shoes to the world's most vulnerable children - here in the United States and over 80 countries around the world. This includes children living in orphanages, and those at-risk in their daily lives because of poverty, violence, and lack of education. About 30% of the shoes collected stay in the United States to help vulnerable children in foster care and impoverished communities.
Shoes are foundational to good health, they help children walk to school to receive an education which gives them hope for tomorrow. Many parasites and diseases enter the body through the feet. A good sturdy pair of shoes can protect a child from basic illnesses which will keep them safe. Most schools around the world require children to wear shoes. New shoes can help a child get basic education which can lead to every opportunity for success. For children who live in orphanages or poverty, a simple pair of shoes help them know they are loved and that they are not forgotten.
Please pray for the people of Nepal!
If you are interested in giving, our partner, Influence Intl. is working with Nepali national leaders to bring relief, restoration and development in the aftermath of the earthquake: http://influenceintl.org/nepalrelief/
