Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as helping fix things that are broken, putting together church bulletins, holding babies in our nursery, to teaching God’s Word and even fixing and serving food. Whatever your capacity or gift, you can be used of God here!


Mission Outreach

North Heights Baptist Church is thrilled to be part of the spreading of God’s Word and watching His kingdom grow around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. The 3 families of missionaries we have sent forth from North Heights Baptist Church are located in three countries in the Northwestern and Southwestern parts of Asia. Each month we faithfully send a portion of our church giving to these families.  We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community or by giving to and devoting themselves to praying for these already on the mission field.



God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Some are behind the scenes running sound. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of our church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God. If you’d like to be a part of the music ministry, contact Mark Taber. Email:

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege and unchartered area of this church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as well as possible for kingdom purposes.  If social media is a passion of yours, then you have found a home with us! Please contact Mark Taber for more information. Email:

Marriage Counseling

Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Through God’s grace and wisdom, a counselors role is listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples. They help to enrich and deepen marriages, seek to aid in mending marriages, and repairing relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse. If you are a licensed and trained FMC, we’d love for you to be a part of our ministry team. If you need a counselor, let us point you in a direction, that, through prayer and dedication, will glorify God in the end. Contact us for more information. #661-399-4521.

Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Our Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday evening, we gather for 1-hour to pray. Throughout the week, volunteers offer prayer for our pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Are you a prayer warrior? Then join us weekly as we petition The Lord God Almighty together. Do you need prayer? Call us. #661-399-4521.
