Global Serving


Global Serving

Global Serving:

The Missions Team provides ways for Creekside to corporately fulfill our vision; specifically the Great Commandment (to love God and others) and the Great Commission (to make disciples of all nations).

Creekside comes alongside our global missionaries mostly through prayer and financial donations.

These are the global missionaries and projects that Creekside supports.

Noah & Ali Hormann

MINISTRY: The Gallery Covenant Church, St. Paul, Minnesota
CONTACT INFO: Noah Hormann, Gallery Covenant Church

In January 2017, Noah accepted a call from The Gallery Covenant Church in St. Paul, MN, as lead pastor.  The Gallery was in need of a pastor who could “replant” the church and God connected the two!  This situation is a cross between a church plant and church revitalization.  

Prayer Requests:

  • Pray for Noah and the congregation; that they will grow in their life with Jesus.
  • Pray for the Hormann family as they adjust to all the changes that come with moving.
  • Pray for God’s protection and blessing for Noah, Ali and their children.
  • Pray for continued financial support.

This increases local presence in service, controls and reduces overhead, empowers local ministry, and grants immediate response to disaster and human suffering.”
