Ever notice that when you hold a compass, it always points to the north?  No matter where you stand or which direction you face, a compass will always point to the north. True North Church is all about pointing people in the right direction in life – towards the God who knows us intimately and knows which direction in life is best for us. Our desire is to seek God and follow His direction in life.

We believe that God deserves all the glory, as our mighty creator and Lord of all. We long to gather as a community to give God all the glory in our songs, our giving, our acts of worship, and our daily living. We envision singing songs to Him, and searching His written word, so that we will be encouraged, enlightened, convicted, and challenged to live as a Christ follower.



GOD. There is only one eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing and everywhere-present Triune God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit— who is the creator and sustainer of all things (Deuteronomy 6:4-5; 1 Timothy 2:5). JESUS CHRIST. Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human. He lived a sinless life, died to make atonement for the sins of all mankind, was resurrected and is now mediator at the right hand of the Father. He is coming again in power and glory for His believing followers, and is the only Savior of mankind (John 1:1, 14; Titus 2:11-14). HOLY SPIRIT. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, regenerating all who repent of their sins and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. He sanctifies, empowers, teaches, guides and comforts the believers (John 16:7, 8, 12-15). BIBLE. The Bible is the inerrant, divinely inspired Word of God and authoritative in all matters it addresses (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21). SALVATION. Salvation is the result of genuine repentance of sin and faith in the atoning work of Christ. It brings forgiveness to the repentant, makes him a participant of the divine nature and gives peace with God. We call this new birth (Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:3-5). CHURCH. We believe in the invisible and universal Church as the living Body of Christ. It is composed of all believers in the Lord Jesus who have been vitally united by faith to Christ, its living Head and sovereign Lord (Matthew 16:18; Hebrews 12:22-24).

ORDINANCES. We believe there are two Christian ordinances: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe they are outward rites appointed by Christ to be administered in each church, not as a means of salvation, but as a visible sign and seal of its reality (Acts 8:36; 1 Corinthians 11:24-34).

Dave Chumchal Associate/Worship Pastor
Dave is passionate about leading people into worshipping their Creator. He believes in the awesome power of intimacy with God, through worship, to draw people to repentance, and to heal and restore broken hearts and lives. You can expect worship songs from all over. We try to do songs that have been proven to be impacting. Dave has several songs published which are being used in churches around the world, and considers it a privilege to be used by God in that way. He enjoys a good documentary and spending time with his wife Karen and their kids, Ethan, Kyle, and Anna.
Paul Porter, Youth Pastor
Paul Porter was born and raised in Nacogdoches, TX. He loved to play the game of baseball growing up and was recruited to play college baseball. During his senior year of high school, he realized that life was not about himself but another person: Jesus. He realized that Jesus was Lord, repented from his sins, and received God’s forgiveness that is only in God the Son: Jesus. He went off to college to play baseball and majored in Exercise Sports Science. During his freshman year of college, God rocked his world. He surrendered his baseball career and was left searching for his calling. After seeking and praying, he was compelled to go into the vocational ministry. He graduated from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (Belton, TX) with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Christian Ministry with a minor in Biblical Languages. He has been part of various ministries: overseas, prison, camp, and students. He was a youth ministry intern and pastor at a few churches in Central Texas and in Lawrence KS. He loves to read literature regarding the Christian worldview, watching college football and Major League Baseball, and enjoys building relationships with people.

At True North it is not about the “band” performing songs for the “audience” to listen to. It is truly our goal for people to make a connection with God through worship songs that are more prayers put to music. We strive to provide beautiful music and sound to facilitate our church’s worship to God!
If you are a musician and would like to use your talents in a worship ministry please contact Dave so you can meet up and talk about it 🙂
