"He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."
Our location in the heart of Phoenix gives us a unique opportunity to intersect with the neighborhood around us to bring about flourishing. Our vision is to address the immediate and long-term needs of our community through three focused initiatives. We believe these are biblical mandates on how the Lord desires us to take the gospel to the places where we live, work, study, and play.
Children & Families
"Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it."
When it comes to children and at-risk families in our community, we focus on support and prevention. We partner with SafeFamilies, a church ministry that recruits volunteer families to support parents going through a hard time. It is not foster care, but a preventative step. You can sign up to serve with them as a host family, family coach, friend, or professional service provider. We also partner with Kenilworth, a local elementary school, to help with any needs they may have throughout the year.
"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me..."
Our under-resourced initiative exists to help those struggling to find the resources to help them meet current needs in their lives. Whether it is financial, access to adequate food, housing, mental health services, or building a community of support, our goal is the serve the whole person. We do this through having a Care Team with a background in behavioral health who assist with needs on-site, internal and external resources and referrals, community groups to address spiritual, relational needs, and at time tangible needs, and general support.
"Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up."
Building up brothers and sisters was imperative to the vitality of the early Christian church. That same importance still exists today. Through our Empowerment initiative, we provide a consistent base of volunteers and financial support to local non-profits that have an empowerment focus, like HustlePHX.
Motivated by Christian faith, HustlePHX encourages the creation of sustainable business ventures that affirms the dignity of people and lead to the flourishing of all communities in Phoenix. They achieve this objective through providing entrepreneurs with teachers, mentors, and guest speakers who are all business-related volunteers.
New City Church offers pastoral counseling on a case-by-case basis but also refers those seeking on-going counseling to other counselors.
