The Glasscock Shelter

Northminster has joined together with Crown Hill United Methodist over the last ten years to provide shelter and nourishment to those in need.  The Glasscock Shelter was born out of the vision and compassion of Kay Glasscock and pastor emeritus, Dennis Hughes. Formerly called the BEHM (Ballard Ecumenical Homeless Mission), we now go by the name of The Glasscock Shelter to honor the vision of Kay Glasscock. Partnering with Community Psychiatric Services in Belltown, the Glasscock Shelter works with our community to provide housing three days a week.  

The shelter is sustained entirely by volunteers and has been over the course of its life. We welcome new friends who have a desire to walk alongside those who are homeless.  Please let us know if you are interested in joining us on this journey.

Global Partnership

At Northminster, we have chosen to be a sending church for Dan and Kathryn Smith-Derksen and their work in Cape Town, South Africa.  Dan and Kathryn will be serving through the Mennonite Mission Network for a three year term in Cape Town, South Africa.  Kathryn served as our choir director for the last four year, but now has the opportunity to embrace her passion of global service. 

You can always give through their secure site, or deliver funds through Northminster. We continue it our partnership with them and their work.
