We partner with gospel-hearted, multiplication-minded churches who seek to fulfill the great commission through church planting.

WE SERVE SENDING CHURCHES AS THEY SERVE THEIR CHURCH PLANTERS.

New City Church Planting is an independent non-profit organization that assists gospel-loving churches in fulfilling the great commission through church planting.

We empower pastors to lead their congregations to become kingdom-minded and multiplication-focused, by equipping then to discover, develop, and deploy church planters.

Originally serving the Washington, DC area, in 2022 New City Church Planting expanded its ministry to cover three regions in the United States:

  • Northeast
  • South
  • Midwest

We aim to serve gospel-hearted, multiplication-minded churches from a variety of denominational streams, within the clear, orthodox doctrinal framework of the Lausanne Covenant.

OUR HISTORY

New City Church Planting was established in 2016 (originally named New City Network) as the church planting ministry of McLean Bible Church in an effort to carry out the vision of “multiplying churches among all nations beginning in greater Washington, DC.”

Coming out of a 2-year pandemic at the end of 2021, our country is experiencing great spiritual disruption. It is important for the Christian church to lean in. And Church planting is more important now than ever.

In response, early in 2022, New City Church Planting matured into an independent autonomous group, with emphasis in training and equipping sending churches to multiply throughout the country. McLean Bible Church has been an amazing place for this network to grow and send planters and we are very thankful for their incredible partnership over the years.

New City Network

“Today, of the approximately 350,000 churches in America, four out of five are either plateaued or declining. Many churches begin a plateau or slow decline about their fifteenth to eighteenth year. 80-85 percent are on the down-side of this cycle.”

– DR. WIN ARN.
