Sojourn Spotlight: New City Church


We're excited to introduce you to Lead Pastor Troy McComas and our newest church plant to join the SN family: New City Church in Fresno, CA. Read their story, celebrate their wins, and please join us in praying for this church in 2018! 

New City's Story

New City began as a burden for Downtown Fresno. As revitalization efforts continue, we believe that the church ought to be on the forefront of bringing peace and renewal to our city. New City set out to be a church for the unchurched and the de-churched, in an area where commuter-congregations and dying churches are all the more irrelevant, we needed a fresh movement to catalyze our generation for the Gospel. In October of 2017, we launched our public gatherings, and are beginning to see the vision for a multi-ethnic, transcultural community of disciples that are making new disciples realized. Our vision is to see Fresno flourish for the glory of God, and the good of all people, through a wholistic Gospel-movement.

Key Wins in 2017

  1. Launched public gatherings
  2. Kicked off leadership training with 11 residents
  3. Partnership with Sojourn and SBC
  4. New converts being discipled
