Outreach Ministry
Northwest Christian strongly believes in supporting community programs locally and globally.  As part of our Christian ministry, we believe in reaching out to others to spread the love of Jesus Christ.
 
Here are a few of the ministries we support:

 

  

NNEMAP Food Pantry is a cooperative ministry distributing food to needy residents of

Columbus including Grandview, Upper Arlington and other nearby neighborhoods. Established

in 1969, NNEMAP has become one of the largest food pantries in Franklin County serving more

than 18,000 people annually. The pantry distributes approximately 3,000 pounds of food each

week to its clients. (Visit https://www.nnemappantry.org/ for additional information.)

 
 

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit Christian ministry founded on the belief that every person

should have access to a safe and affordable place to live. HFH builds homes for families

 world. Whether it is economic struggles, natural disasters, war or civil unrest, HFH provides

shelter and housing solutions to help families recover. The local chapter helps relieve housing

burdens to central Ohio families. It requires over 2,500 volunteer hours to build a house. (Visit https://www.habitatmidohio.org/ for additional information.)

 

 

CROP Walk is an interfaith, community event involving thousands of people who raise funds for

local and global hunger programs. Organizers have a goal to raise $100,000 to help hungry

people, both in Franklin County and in countries around the world. Mid-Ohio Food Bank

receives a portion of the funds raised by CROP Walk. Northwest Christian Church is a leading

congregation in supporting this event in Columbus. (Visit https://www.crophungerwalk.org/columbusoh for additional information.

 

 

The YMCA Family Center provides emergency shelter and critical services to stabilize homeless families in central Ohio. Their goal is to help families find housing within 3 weeks of entering the program.  To assist families with rapid re-housing, a breadth of services is offered including direct family assistance (meals, transportation and basic needs), family advocacy, employment services and childcare.  Northwest Christian Church specifically assists with providing and delivering meals several times a year.
