Our missional church planting team of 14 adults at NewStart RiverCity is of one mind and heart in following God's call to plant a mission through which Jesus' church will be participating in revealing and expanding the Kingdom of God. This is an intentionally relational and organic process that focuses on people seeing God's love for them through our own willingness to draw compassionately near to people in ways that are relevant to their lives. We will plant in the next year. We are praying for God's discernment regarding a location. Please pray with us as we want eyes to see and ears to hear God's direction.
