In August of 2011, New City Church Macon sent out several families to plant New City Church Warner Robins. Now, over two years later, after much prayer and conversation, the leadership of both New City Church Warner Robins and New City Church Macon agree that it is time for New City Church Warner Robins to become its own fully autonomous church. Therefore, beginning immediately, New City Church Warner Robins is now Sojourn Church.
To be sure, this does not mean that Sojourn Church and New City Church will not continue working together in various ways for the purpose of gospel transformation in Middle GA and beyond. Indeed, we will. And this does not mean that the leadership of Sojourn Church and the leadership of New City Church are no longer friends. Indeed, we are.
What this transition does mean is that both Sojourn Church and New City Church are healthy local churches that have a clear vision from God about what God is calling us to do in our cities and beyond. Though we will no longer be officially united as “one church,” we will remain united in our mission to see the gospel transform everything around us.
Exciting times lay ahead for Sojourn Church! As we quickly approach the beginning of a new year, we are looking forward with anticipation at the continued opportunities that God will provide us to be agents of gospel transformation in Warner Robins and beyond.
