It’s been such a privilege to begin planning and preparing for the launch of New City Church. It’s been exciting to see those who have already jumped in wanting to be a part, as well as meeting with and talking to others about what we are doing.
As you probably know, there’s a lot that goes into starting a church, and the financial aspect is a big part of it. There’s simply a lot of up front costs that have to be taken care to get things off the ground. Things like all of the necessary start up equipment, advertising, staffing, etc.
And not only are we planting a church, but our desire is so much larger than New City itself. The vision of New City is huge. Our vision is to start a church planting movement so that we can be actively reaching 50,000 by the year 2040 through New City and the churches we plant. We want 50,000 people to hear and experience the love of Jesus in a local church community.
But we can’t do any of that apart from the help of people like you who can make this dream a reality.
So we are starting our 86 in 6 campaign of raising $86,000 in 6 months (by October).
Research shows that healthy church plants reach people who are not part of any worshipping body at 6 to 8 times the rate of most established churches of the same size. Clearly there are exceptions to that rule (even some churches in Raleigh!) but the reality is that’s what they are, exceptions.
There is no more effective and evangelistic way to share the love of Jesus with those who do not know it than planting churches, and nothing else even comes close.
So I want to invite you into this journey with us by asking that you partner with us during this campaign. Will help us get started in making a way for 50,000 people to experience the love of Christ in a local church community?
I’m in. Are you?
