About NCFOur Story & Staff - Doctrine and More
In the fall of 1977 the Northside Christian Fellowship (NCF) began as a Sunday School in a rural two-room brick school house north of Sandpoint, Idaho, with 27 attending. In 1986, we started building our new church and everyone (men, women, and children) pitched in to help build our two-story facility located on Colburn-Culver Road. The building has a large meeting room on the second floor, with classrooms and library on the first floor. Attendance at NCF varies from 100 to 125 people. Sunday mornings begin with Sunday School classes for all ages that meet from 9:15am until 10:30am.
Our main service commences at 10:45am and continues until about noon. During the main service, everyone participates in the singing and the prayer & praise time. Then, before the morning’s message begins, children ages 3-5 are excused to Kids Church, while ages 6-11 may attend Junior Church. There is a nursery provided for children younger than 3 years old, during both the Sunday School hour and the main service.
Our church body extends a warm welcome to new-comers — whether our guests are here visiting on vacation, or are looking for a permanent church home. We encourage you to attend in whatever attire you are comfortable. Suits and ties are as welcome as jeans and t-shirts. We sing a variety of music — from traditional hymns to the contemporary praises. Our music team and song leaders blesses us with their God-given talents.

Pastor Keith Goullette
Senior PastorA native to North Idaho, Pastor Keith has been at NCF since participating in its founding in June, 1977. He and his wife, Cora “Corky”, had been serving as missionaries to start a Vacation Bible School in the Northside area. That quickly blossomed into the founding of NCF by interested and intent people in this area. He went on to attend Bible school at Montana Institute of the Bible in Lewistown, MT, and then joined NCF leadership in January, 1979. His main areas of ministry include preaching, teaching, discipling, counseling, and visiting. He serves 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in response to God’s calling on his life. Pastor Keith salvation story goes back to November, 1972, when both he and his wife were saved - he by way of a Gosepl tract and she through a pastor’s leading. He has been married to his wife, Corky, for 50 years! Together they have 4 children, 12 grandchildren, and 7 great grandchildren.
