Plant Team

Phoebe, Prisca and Aquila, Epaenetus, Mary, Andronicus and Junia, Ampliatus, Urbanus, Stachys, Apelles, Aristobulus, Herodion, Narcissus, Tryphaena, Tryphosa, Persis, Rufus and his mother, Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas, Philologus, Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas.

These are the people Paul greets as he wraps up his letter to the church in Rome. Honestly, I usually skim through these names, but not any more. And I actually love that Paul spreads so much ink to declare his gratitude for these partners in the gospel (technically, Tertius spread the ink). As a church planter, I am growing to understand the incredible value of men and women who will share the burden of establishing a mission church. I hope that one day soon, I will be able to send you a list of names.

We are actively recruiting people to join the New City Plant Team. Please continue to ask the Lord to “send out laborers into His harvest” (Luke 10:2).

Here’s what we are asking our Plant Team members to do:

  • Pray regularly and persistently for the people of Orangeburg and for the launch and establishment of New City Fellowship.
  • Be involved in the lives of unbelievers, praying for them and building bridges with them, so that God may draw them to faith.
  • Seek to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with God by His grace.
  • Be open and available to the Lord as to what ministry role He might have for you.
  • Give faithfully to the ministry as you are able.
