How We Help

We Support Church Planters

We aim to support church planters by providing excellent training, individualized coaching, and valuable resources to church planters and their families. One avenue of accomplishing this is through our Church Planting Residency, which is an intensive, supervised ministry experience focused on developing the core competencies of planting a church.

We Network Churches Together

Connecting Partner Churches with one another is a priority for us, as we value the impact that a genuine brotherhood has on the success of new churches. We encourage and foster relationships among churches who have the unified goal of reaching our city, nation and world with the message of Jesus Christ.

We Develop Training and Resources

Our Church Planting Residency is an intensive, supervised ministry experience focused on developing the core competencies of planting a church. We also create resources, including books, videos, and podcasts, for churches and individuals to use as resources in their own church planting endeavors. Our desire is that these materials and methods are reproducible in churches of various sizes and adequately prepares and equips biblically qualified men and their teams to plant new evangelical churches.

We Advocate for Church Planting and the Great Commission

We desire to help all Christians understand the biblical rationale for church planting and to familiarize them with need for new churches throughout this country and the world. In turn, we hope this motivates participation in local church planting initiatives. Our intro to church planting course, Church Planting Primer, is available online for anyone wanting to learn more about church planting and how every Christian can be involved.

Church Planting Residency

Our Residency is open to aspiring planters and re-planters of any age and in any stage who are sensing a call to reach people through church planting.

During the Residency, potential planters develop the core competencies of planting a church, from refining a strategic and contextualized vision of planting a local church, to developing a strong core team that stewards the long term health and vitality of the church.

Residencies are currently held in Texas and the District of Columbia. We are also preparing to launch Residencies in the Midwest Region, as well as a Residency in Spanish in 2023.

Our Community

At the heart of what we do at New City is to assist gospel-loving churches in fulfilling the great commission through church planting.

Ours is a community of missionary leaders who support, encourage and pray for one another through the difficult work of church planting.

Sacred Spaces

Every year in North America hundreds of churches are quietly being acquired by developers and repurposed for commercial purposes. Sacred Spaces is our effort to intervene in this tragedy by working to preserve and honor church facilities for the original purpose for which many church buildings in North America were built. As old congregations close their doors, their buildings are currently liquidated and sold to be turned into retail spaces, bars and clubs and other commercial ventures. 

Sacred Spaces will work to reallocate the resources of declining congregations to ensure a continued gospel witness in that community.

Increase Church Planting Awareness

We want to inspire and influence churches to invest in multiplication. For this purpose, we develop tools and resources to serve the church at large.

We strongly believe that the chances for success for a sole individual to plant a church are minimal. But when a congregation commits to plant a healthy church in a community that lacks one and stands behind a church planter, we see God’s Kingdom grow!

Church planting is one of the most effective ways of reaching people with the gospel and expanding the kingdom of God. About 42% of members at successful church plants were not previously attending church regularly.
