What is a Partner Church?

  • A Partner Church should agree with the BASOM Statement of Faith.
  • A Partner Church should have at least one qualified Ministry Mentor who will take point leadership of the Pastoral Resident(s).
  • The Partner Church’s Ministry Mentor will meet with their resident(s) one on one at least every other week for ministry coaching, evaluation, and development.
  • A Partner Church will commit to having all residents participate in all learning modules hosted by BASOM.
  • The main purpose of the BASOM Pastoral Residency program is to train and equip each resident rather than benefit the Partner Church.
  • A Partner Church’s residents should be employed as part-time employees.
  • Each Partner Church should employ all residents in accordance with the Fair Labor Standard Act and within compliance of any local jurisdiction labor laws.
  • Materials for the resident’s coursework (books, access to online curriculum, etc.) will be covered by BASOM through the partner church annual fee. Any materials required within the residents mentored ministry will be covered by the Partner Church.
  • If applicable, both the Residency Director and Partner Church Ministry Mentor will advocate for job placement within Partner Church or through personal networks once the program is completed.

Partner Churches:

Central Peninsula Church is a community in the heart of Silicon Valley that exists to make and mature more followers of Christ. We are a non-denominational church, dependent on the Word of God, gathering for weekly worship at locations in Foster City and Redwood City. For more than 50 years, we have been cultivating authentic relationships and welcoming people from all backgrounds into our community of faith, where we seek to support one another and compassionately engage the world around us as we live life side-by-side. Through both large and small group gatherings, community outreach, and a variety of ministries, we seek to grow in community and faith with one another, and ultimately, glorify God.

You may not be able to tell from the outside, but New North Church is actually part of a lineage of Bay Area churches that dates all the way back to the 1960’s. It all started with a simple idea: carry out a calling to make and mature followers of Jesus Christ through a community of believers. Prior to the current name, the church was known as the North Campus of Central Peninsula Church (or CPC for short). The main campus of CPC is based in Foster City and after 40 years of establishment, commissioned a group of 100 committed people to start a new campus in Millbrae, CA.

The church launched at the auditorium of Mills High school on January 11th, 2009. After two years there, CPC North was ready for its next move and landed at the current location, the former Crestmoor High School at 300 Piedmont Avenue, San Bruno.

On July 1st, 2017, CPC North officially re-launched as an independent church body known as New North Church. However, in spite of the name change, the church remains deeply connected to Central Peninsula Church through shared core values and a shared history that will never be lost.
