Northbrook's Global Partners


Since 1974, the central aim of International Needs has been—and continues to be—winning people to Christ.

They dig wells, build schools, and sponsor kids so they can go to school and get a hot meal each day—all for the central purpose of transforming lives and reaching communities for Jesus Christ.

Northbrook Church is a key partner in ministry. We have supported medical teams and clinics, built a church pavilion and six-classroom school, and helped hundreds through child sponsorship and children’s outreach programs. 

Compassion international


Compassion International uses a holistic child development model through local churches around the world to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name.  This is done by blending spiritual, physical, social and economic care that benefits the children, their family and communities.  Northbrook has a relationship with Compassion in El Salvador, particularly in the northeast community of Cacaopera, where many children are sponsored by Northbrook families. 

Compassion international El Salvador

Northbrook Church is partnering with Compassion International to help babies in El Salvador survive and have the best opportunity to reach their God-given potential in life. Your support is helping sustain Survival programming at the Niños de la Nueva Jerusalén Student Center and the Corderitos de Jesús Student Center, in Morazon, El Salvador. Together, these two Survival centers currently serve 30 babies and their caregivers, thanks to you.

God’s work in India is reflected through a relationship that exists to give everyone an opportunity to hear, understand and respond to the gospel and be discipled into communities of believers, within their own context, so that Christ is radiated in everything they do. This is accomplished through the training of indigenous leaders, planting of churches, relief and rehabilitation efforts, and the education of women and children to transform lives across the nation of India and beyond. 




Lee Heyward founded BrookLink in 2008 as a global organization that equips local church leaders who minister in under-served areas of the world. BrookLink's mission is to help national church leaders to fulfill their role in expanding God’s kingdom in their homeland. Lee has devoted his life to fulfilling this mission, which has now expanded to include churches in the USA.

COVID-19 Relief Efforts

Food baskets were distributed to the aged and the sick in and around Lasivenu, to give some relief to those who are more vulnerable as they do not have the strength to work.
