Our Story

NorthRidge Fellowship began in 2001 as a vision in the heart of an Oklahoma farmer and his wife, Mickie & Rendi Kelly, after having preached a revival in In Twin Falls.

On November 1st, 2001 the Kellys' U-Haul pulled into Idaho to begin an adventure that led to the founding of NRF in the spring of 2002 after holding services in the Best Western conference room in Jerome. Having purchase 8 acres of land on Golf Course Road, NRF moved into its present facility in 2003; however, in 2007, it built on another addition and expanded its worship space.

Today NRF is a testament to God’s faithfulness in fulfilling His purpose. The congregation is made up of people of all ages with different backgrounds, each bringing their own contribution to an ever-growing church family that loves the Lord Jesus Christ.

NRF was founded to be a church that makes much of Jesus and much less of religion. That is why our sign has the tag line, “It’s Not About A Religion; It’s About A Relationship!”. We here at NRF are more interested in your heart than your clothes and want more than anything else to the living relationship that we have in Jesus.

We are a loving church that accepts people where they are and desire to do life together as we glorify God by being His hands and feet. Come and see what makes us special, and come and be part of our story.
