Who are we?

Why we Exist

Northgate Internship Program exists to identify, develop, and send young leaders of character who are passionate about Jesus and His Church. The Northgate internship program was created out of a burden to see young adults identified, developed, and sent to change a Valley, a nation, and the world. This 10 month program is designed to give young adults (ages 18-25) a comprehensive view of the bible, local church ministry, and both local and global mission.

In an age of moral relativity, materialism, and biblical illiteracy we partner with local churches and Christian educational institutions across the country in raising up young adults of integrity who know what it means to live a life of sacrifice, in true submission to Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit and a thorough understanding of God.

We believe that nothing can stop a generation of leaders who are passionate about the mission of Jesus, understand the love of God, and are equipped to lead others to do the same!

In April, as a team we will be heading off to Thailand in partnership with Imagine Thailand, a Thai-Canadian humanitarian aid organization. The main purpose of our trip is to increase the team’s global awareness through service in an international missions context, while championing and building momentum for the work of our mission’s partners. In Thailand our work will focus on community development through teaching ESL, building relationship with elementary and university-aged students, as well as some involvement in various relief and development initiatives.


Phil and Jennie Gaglardi Academy

Each year, a key component of our team’s ministry experience is serving at the main Christian high school in the Comox Valley, Phil and Jennie Gaglardi Academy, where we serve as ministry leaders and oversee the high school chapels, campus events, and student leadership. Phil and Jennie Gaglardi Academy has been the premier elementary and secondary school institution for Christian education at a K-12 level in the Comox Valley for the last 30+ years. We consider it a privilege to be serve the students at Phil and Jennie Gaglardi in the capacity that we do!
