We're excited to introduce you to the newest member of the Sojourn Network family: District Church, a church plant in Indianapolis, IN led by pastor Dwayne Gibbs! Read their story, celebrate their wins, and please join us in praying for them in 2016.
The District Church began meeting with 10 adults in January, 2015. We began praying for God to transform the city by sharing life and the gospel with those around us. The District Church exists to glorify God by making disciples and planting churches. The gospel drives this mission as we focus on gospel-centered worship, gospel-centered discipleship, and gospel-centered multiplication. Without the gospel we would not be able to worship Jesus, make disciples who become like Jesus, and plant more churches to spread the news about Jesus. In the end, it's all about Jesus!
District's Wins in 2016
By God's grace they were able to: minister to more than 200 Burmese refugees in our community; launch public worship gatherings with 63 people; donate more than $7,000 in school supplies to Nora Elementary for students and teachers; provide groceries for more than 50 families during the holidays; and launch 3 Missional Groups in their city.
How to Pray for District Church in 2016
1. Pray that they would continue growing in their diversity as a church.
2. Pray that many would come to know Jesus and be baptized.
3. Pray for unity, growth, and intimacy within our church and with Jesus.
