The mandate Christ gave us was clear: "Go and make disciples of all nations…" (Mt. 28:19). In accordance with this command, our commitment to the raising up, placement, and support of missionaries around the globe is uncompromising. In fact, Northland Cathedral is widely known within the Assemblies of God to be a "missions church," meaning a church which makes World Missions one of its very highest priorities. At the present time we support more than fifty missionaries.
Each year we bring the missions theme to life through colorful festivals, missionary guest speakers, and a variety of programs and activities for all ages. Those in our church family are given opportunity to pledge financial support for missionary families in every region of the world, and are encouraged to support these missionaries with fervent intercessory prayer.

Missions Festival in 2012 takes place from September 30-October 7.
In December, Northland Cathedral enjoys one of its most cherished traditions as our congregation blesses one or more pastors and their families with a Christmas they will never forget. These pastors, who often lead smaller churches in rural communities, are always a joy to have as guests. Throughout the entire month of November, the Sunday School classes collect toward the purchase of gifts, and we collect non-perishable food items, canned and paper goods. In 2012, Home Missions Sunday is December 2.
Leadership for missions is provided by our missions committee: Pastor and Carol Harrup; Ray and Judy Buckner, chairman; Glen and Judy Eden; Mark and Jayne Calvert; Paul McGarvey; Dan Dye; and Judy Ledene.
