North Point Resources (NPR)
North Point Resources (NPR) is a self-funded ministry that exports the content produced at NPM churches.
We sell resources directly to individual consumers as well as to ministry and church leaders. NPR operates an online store, three local church bookstores, and a distribution center to house and ship inventory.
Additionally, the Your Move with Andy Stanley broadcast media ministry and North Point Music recording label operate under the umbrella of NPR. To learn more about either of these divisions, use the links below.
Your Move with Andy Stanley is a 30 minute TV episode which airs locally after Saturday Night Live in seven U.S. cities and nationally on GMC and Daystar. The supporting podcast, app, and newsletter are all designed help people make better decisions and live with fewer regrets.
North Point Music works to bring local worship leaders, musicians, and songwriters together to inspire a generation and influence the church. The NPM record label and music publishing company is now home to worship leaders/songwriters Eddie Kirkland, Todd Fields, Casey Darnell, and Dove Award winner Seth Condrey.
If you are seeking permission to use NPM-produced content, please email email@example.com. Our copyright administrators will reply to your request within 30 days.
Much of the content we produce is sold at northpointstore.com. If we can save your ministry the time and expense of producing videos, curriculum, music tools, sermon outlines, etc., we’re committed to share.
Frequently Asked Questions
How did you launch your ministry?
Our Resources ministry began in response to local church attendees who were requesting a way to keep and share copies of Andy’s sermons. We launched our ministry offering only audio cassette tapes of the Sunday message sold at folding tables in the back of our meeting space. Over time, we have expanded our offerings and launched an online store with the aim of equipping church leaders with resources that could help them create churches for unchurched people.
How do you fund your ministry?
Our ministry is self-funded. All operational costs for NPR are met through the sale of products and through donations given specifically to North Point Resources. Proceeds are reinvested in our ministry and any net profits at the end of the fiscal year are donated to North Point Ministries.
Tithing and money from Sunday collections is never used to fund the production of resources or the staff required to operate our ministry.
How do you decide what to produce and/or export?
Our aim is to export helpful, relevant content to ministry and church leaders. We understand that not everything produced here at North Point is easily scaled or used by others. But if we can save you the time and energy required to produce a curriculum, environment, music tool, or sermon outline, we’re committed to share.
How do you staff your ministry? Do you use volunteers?
We have a full-time staff that manages product development, inventory management, store operations, online order fulfillment, marketing, business operations, and publishing and distribution partnerships.
Additionally, our distribution center and three local church bookstores manage approximately 270 ministry volunteers. Our distribution center volunteers pack and ship orders from our online store daily. And our local church bookstore volunteers staff the stores on Sundays and assist with inventory management during the week.
