ENGAGING THE WORLD & CHURCH PLANTING
“Mission”, or engagement, is the OUT of New City Church. Engagement is not an option for you to choose or reject; nor is it a “one-week-per-year activity” for you to carry out on another continent. Instead, engagement is a way of life. It’s a living out of our Kingdom identity as Ambassadors. It’s the purpose God gives his people, to be carried out in everyday life: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matt 18:18-20). In New City Church, we believe that mission happens everyday, locally and globally, and through church planting.
LOCAL ENGAGEMENT – THROUGH THE VILLAGES
Each VILLAGE has been placed strategically by God in a specific area to serve and love where it is. Therefore, each VILLAGE will regularly be Ambassadors in the domains the people in the Village have influence in. Whether that is engaging schools, parks, businesses, sports, arts, or government, each VILLAGE will serve and love the community with the love of Christ in an effort to be Ambassadors and ministers of reconciliation to our city. Join a VILLAGE today!
GLOBAL Engagement – MIDDLE EAST
We believe God has also called us to engage our world, and the place He has led New City to is the West Bank. New City Church will use the gifts of its body (financially and practically) to love and serve the West Bank with the love of God. If you would like more details or info on the next global engage trip, please contact us.

Not only do we desire to start VILLAGES throughout Chicago, but it has been our vision since our inception to plant churches in Chicago and throughout the world. Every year New City sends out church planters to plant new churches. If you would like to come and be a part of New City Church and serve as one of our church planters, or if you would like more information on one of our church planting training events to become one of our church plants, please contact us.
