Who we are

Our Pastoral Staff is here to serve not only the North Avenue Church Community, but the whole of Battle Creek. North Avenue is more than a bunch of pastors, so please check out the links to dig deeper into our beliefs and values.


If you need more information, or just prefer talking to a person, we would love to speak with you! If you would like to speak with one of our pastors, it's always a good idea to email or call first so we know to be in the office for you!
