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.
