Mission Columbia is the Outreach Ministry for Northside Baptist Church. Our ministry is designed to reach out to the community and help families with food, clothes and hope for a better future. Our volunteers consist of mostly senior adults who interact with clients to project wisdom, share their views of life, hoping to interject some knowledge for families that are struggling in life. Our hope at Mission Columbia is that our presence in the community will change lives, make a difference and be a shining radiant light for those around us.

International Friendship Ministries
IFM is a private Christian organization which seeks to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ to international students through sincere friendship and service.

If you are an international student, IFM is here for YOU!
Food from the Heart
Richard Kester Memorial Food Drive
Once a year the church comes together to collect food for needy families in our community. Volunteers stand outside local grocery stores and distribute red bags and flyers explaining the food drive. 100 percent of all items will benefit men, women, and children here in the Midlands. The food is distributed through the Harvest Hope Food Bank and area food pantries and ministries. Watch for more information on the events section and in your LIFE Groups.
Good Samaritan Clinic
Hispanics are one of the nation’s largest and most vulnerable communities. Here in South Carolina, latino population growth is among the nation’s highest. Yet more than one third lack access to vital health care services when they are ill or preventive care to help them stay well. The Good Samaritan Clinic is a faith-based 501(c)3 organization offering free health care for the Hispanic community in two Midlands locations. With assistance from volunteer physicians, nurses and assistants as well as funding partners, the clinic provides free medical attention and counseling to anyone in need.
