In 1980, Pastor Tommy Paino started a church in Carmel called Northview Christian Life Church. He and 30 others gathered for their first service at Carmel Elementary School. The church grew steadily.
They moved from the elementary school, to a building on 131st Street and Gray Road, and in 1995, to our existing facility here on 131st Street and Hazel Dell Road.
Tragically, the same year they moved to our current facility, Northview’s founding pastor, was diagnosed with ALS and lost his battle with the disease in January 1999.
Determined to move forward, the church leadership conducted a search for a new lead pastor and invited Steve Poe to join the staff in June of 1999.
Since our beginnings in 1980, Northview has evolved into a church ministering to more than 3000 people each week on two campuses, located in Carmel and West Lafayette.
We’ve planted two local churches and a church in the Brookside community in Indianapolis’ inner city. We minister extensively to our local and global ministry partners around the country and the world.
