Northbrook and Uflourish Church have entered into a formalized church-to-church partnership!
Led by Pastor Kurt Owens, Uflourish Church is a multi-ethnic, gospel-centered church community located in Milwaukee. We are united in mission to make compelling followers of Christ, growing in the knowledge of the Word, growing in the application of the Word, and bearing fruits of the Word so that lives are transformed and the glory of God is revealed. We desire to embody the racial and ecclesial unity that we have with one another in the gospel.
This partnership is not intended to be a mere symbolic token of unity, but rather a very real, tangible means of practicing it. We look forward to getting to know each other and involving ourselves in each other’s lives, being exposed to new perspectives and matters of concern, and allowing ourselves to be stretched. We believe the church is the best equipped community for this very thing – with Christ as her Lord, the Spirit as her common gift, and the reconciling gospel as her foundation.

Wisconsin Inmate Education Association
On July 27, 2021, twenty inmates within Waupun prison graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Studies and a minor in Psychology in a ceremony that can only be called spectacular!
Even more amazing is the fact that their course work was completed within the extra constraints presented by COVID-19, and all graduated with honors! By the grace of God, long lost hope has been rediscovered, family ties that had been broken for years are reestablished, and graduates have a fresh perspective on life. They are excited to use their education to positively affect the lives of family, friends, and communities.
Through your faithful giving to the nb Mission Fund, YOU have made this education possible for our brothers in Christ.
