Quest Children's ministry
Quest, Northstar's children's ministry, exists to provide a setting where kids, infants through 4th grade, learn that Jesus is on a quest for them and how they can be on a quest for Jesus. Exciting experiences are offered for your child based on their age or grade, including worship, activities, crafts, and Bible lessons. Your child is invited to attend during either Sunday morning service. To ensure your child's safety, we utilize a reliable electronic check-in system that ensures only you can pick up your child.
- Visiting for the first time? Feel free to register your child with the check-in system now to save time on Sunday and check out the I'm New Here! flyer for more on what to expect.

A Discipleship Huddle is a training group of 3-4 people that teaches discipleship strategies to help us be more intentional in living like Jesus. Huddles focus on learning to hear the voice of God. Huddles typically last 9-12 months and meet 2-4 times per month. They are both organized and organic while providing high challenge to change and high invitation into real relationships.

the Story-formed life
The Story-Formed Life is a discipleship training tool that exposes that invites us to enter into an epic story in which God himself is the central character. The Story deepens our faith. The key concept is understanding that we are living in God’s story and not our own. And if we truly grasp that truth, everything should change. We’ll be walking through the Scriptures to help make this discovery over the 10 weeks. The Story-Formed Life is offered twice per year. For more info, contact Adam Kasel at email@example.com or 513.668.0485.
The School of kingdom ministry
The number one reality Jesus spoke about is the Kingdom of God. He wants his followers to minister to one another and others in this reality. This may seem scary or intimidating but it doesn't have to be. In fact we can be naturally supernatural. If you'd like to learn how then the School of Kingdom Ministry is for you.
