In May of 2000, North Bay established charter membership, adopted a constitution and bylaws, was incorporated as an independent church, and voted to affiliate with the Forest Lakes District of the EFCA. Immediately the church began working closely with both the North Central District and the Forest Lakes District to plan the early stages of giving birth to a new church plant in Duluth.
As the young church plant grew and took form, the hope of Duluth and Beyond continued to grow in the minds and hearts of the leadership of North Bay. In 2004 Pastor Jeff Sorvik led a group of families in planting another contemporary ministry in Duluth. This ministry that was launched out of North Bay became known as Anchor Point Community Church.
From 1998 to 2004 Pastor Jeff Sorvik was our lead pastor. We had a handful of interim pastors until 2007. From 2007 to 2012 Pastor Curt Vanderstelt was our lead pastor. Pastor Glenn accepted the call to be the lead pastor in 2012 and then retired in May 2020.
Through a series a God directed connections with Rock Hill Community Church (the daughter chuch of Anchor Point and the granddaughter Church of North Bay), the search team extended the call to be pastor to Darin Lund. Pastor Darin accepted the call and began to be the lead pastor of North Bay starting on June 2020.
