Questions for Further Exploration

What sets Sojourn Network apart from other church planting networks?

The key elements that set Sojourn Network apart from other church planting networks are:

  • Theological convictions tied to a unified theological vision
  • Common local church ministry strategies
  • Emphasis on mission and ongoing care and support
  • Values of relationships, health, and ministry longevity

What value does being a part of a network add for me as a church planter?

Just as man was designed not to be alone, we believe churches and pastors were not designed to do ministry alone. We seek to partner with like-minded pastors and churches through shared resources, relationships and soul care, shared ministry expertise, distinct DNA, and more!

What type of planter is Sojourn Network looking for?

In summary, a well-aligned Sojourn Network planter:

  • shares our theological convictions and holistic gospel vision,
  • is committed to the gathering and scattering of the church to reach their community,
  • is committed to multiplying disciples and evangelizing the lost,
  • demonstrates humility and a healthy spiritual life,
  • demonstrates an aptitude for leadership, preaching and shepherding others,
  • lives in community with other brothers and sisters,
  • has a flourishing (though imperfect) marriage and home life,
  • and is committed to the local church; and values partnership with SN.
