What is Missional CommunitY?

A missional community (MC for short) is group of ordinary believers that experience life together like a family and see themselves as sent on mission by God into their own lives as disciples who make disciples.

An MC is much more than a weekly event. MC's gather together at different times throughout the week to fulfill Jesus' mission of being disciples who make disciples. Together we learn how to worship and submit to Jesus in all of life by learning how to love one another as family, worship Jesus as servants who serve others, and share the good news of Jesus Christ as his sent missionaries.

Every missional community identifies a group of people whom they believe God is sending them to love, serve, and share Jesus with. It could be a neighborhood or network of relationships. Some choose to love and serve local schools, while others will identify people they already are in regular relationship with.

We want to see every aspect of our city blessed by God's people: business, arts, education, sports, recreation, and social services.


Currently, there are two active Communities ministering out of Northcrest Church. For more information on the focus of each group and how to join one or to find out more information on forming a new Missional Community, contact Pastor Cottle and he'll help you find the one that The Spirit is leading you to! 

If you're feeling called to lead a group please contact Pastor Cottle @ spc760@gmail.com.

DNA Groups

Within each MC, smaller groups meet that provide structure for each of us to care deeply for one another and brings mutual, relational discipleship into clear focus in each others lives.

DNA stands for Divine Truth, Nurturing Accountability and Apostolic Action


In DNA groups, We help one another discover Jesus in the Scriptures, nurture the truths of the gospel in our hearts and stir each other on to take action to obey what Jesus calls us to.


These groups (three people of the same gender), under the leadership of the Holy Spirit, meet bi-weekly to share what they are learning and how they are growing as believers in Jesus.
