Engage Church Albany
Sojourn Network is pleased to introduce you to a new member of our network, Engage Albany out of Albany, New York, led by Sean Nolan and his wife, Hannah. Welcome to our family! Read more of their story below and join us in prayer for them this year!
Engage Albany is a new church plant in the heart of New York's capital city with a desire to be a community of humble learners, who love Christ, and labor to engage the city with the gospel. The hope is to see lives changed and churches planted throughout the city. Their prayer is that God would draw them deeper into communion with him and draw those who don't know him into a relationship with him.
Goals for Engage Albany:
Identify and begin raising up 2-3 men to enter into a track toward eldership.
Identify and begin discipling 2-3 load-bearing Christians to be key leaders and eventually deacons.
Locate a public meeting space and transition to a bi-weekly Sunday service as they gain traction.
Multiply from one community group into two.
Know each of the immediate neighbors by name and share a meal with them (a huge challenge in the relationally cold NY climate!).
Pray for continued humility and faithfulness.
Pray for a contagious joy in the Lord amidst the people that would be evident to lost neighbors.
Pray for boldness and confidence in sharing the gospel with neighbors.
Pray for wisdom and humility as they seek to raise up internal elders to shepherd the flock.
Pray for the marriages and families within the church that they would resist the enemy and rest in Christ.
