There are lots of ways to connect at Northshore; one of the best ways is to get involved with one or more TEAMs. We think of TEAM as an acronym: Transforming Environments for Active Ministry. Our TEAMs provide ways to work together, pray together, study together and live life together… supporting one another and building meaningful relationships.

Interested in joining a TEAM? Want to start or host a TEAM? Have an idea for a new TEAM? Get on board by emailing

Theologically Speaking

Class content will generally come from a variety of lectures or presentations on DVD:

The Great Commission – Burk Parsons
Our Lord Jesus Christ gave His people the Great Commission to make disciples of all nations. This is a significant task, yet it is one that the Holy Spirit enables us to accomplish as we rest in the authority of Christ over all things. In this series containing five 23-minute lectures, Dr. Burk Parsons walks us through every phrase of the Great Commission, carefully examining how Christ calls us to fulfill the Great Commission in our homes, our churches, and to the ends of the earth.

Made in His Image – Institute for Creation Research
A four-episode presentation by ICR that demonstrates the wondrously complex and creative work of God in the human body: specifically focusing on the miracle of birth, the marvel of the eyes, the uniquely human hands, and the beauty in motion. (Four 22-minute episodes)

What Did Jesus Do? – R.C. Sproul
Dr. Sproul uncovers what it means for Christ to be the second Adam and the ways His life met God’s requirement to fulfill all righteousness. (Twelve 23-minute lectures)

Only Two Religions – Peter Jones
Ask someone in today’s post-Christian culture what they believe and the answers seem endless. Dr. Jones considers Paul’s teaching in Romans 1 and provides insights to help Christians better articulate their beliefs in the midst of our culture’s spiritual confusion. (Twelve 23-minute lectures)

Teacher: Dan Jacobsen
Time: Sunday mornings at 8:30 am
Starting: Ongoing
