A one-year wave of generosity to release resources to change the world!

The goal of the Kingdom Surge campaign is to eliminate Northwoods' $2.4 million debt, releasing $500,000 per year currently committed to mortgage payments. This annual amount will then be directed to pastor training and church planting—in our region and around the globe!

Be sure to write Kingdom Surge in your check memo or select the Kingdom Surge fund in online giving.

The local church is the hope of the world. As Christians, we have been entrusted with the life-changing Gospel and commanded to give it away in our towns, throughout our state & region, and to the ends of the Earth!

Our Grander Vision is to see by 2030:

  • Twenty churches started in Illinois and surrounding regions
  • 3,000 churches planted around the world

The best way to change a community is to plant a church. We must meet humanitarian needs in any community to which God takes us. But lasting change comes only through a faith-filled church.

Northwoods has already begun the work:

  • Leaders being trained through the Northwoods School of Ministry
  • First regional church plant coming fall of 2020

The greatest need in our broken world is access to life-giving churches. The Church is the pillar of truth in any community. Apart from the truth, lives are built upon the shaky soil of deception and false religions.

…and to the ends of the Earth…
