Small Town Jesus One-Day Conference

"Small towns are big mission fields that are almost totally neglected by modern church planters. City ministry has become, for many, the definition of godly ministry. But what about the millions of people around the world who live in small towns? This is not just a book, it is a call to take the gospel everywhere, big or small, because that’s what Jesus told us to do." (

Learn with with us how Jesus viewed small towns and small town people. Learn with us, from Donnie's story practical ways to engage in the gospel with the people of your town or city.

Numbers matter; numbers aren’t just numbers, they represent children of God. Jesus came for these “numbers.” It’s staggering to hear, Donnie Griggs and One Harbor Church are reaching 1,000 people a week in a town of just over 9,000 people. This is a Jesus glorifying accomplishment, one every city pastor can learn from. This is a superb book that will help the church reach 33.7 million people in small town America or wherever you are.”
— Tyler Jones, Lead Pastor of Vintage Church, Raleigh, NC

Finding New City Church:

3rd Thursday Roundtables

Each 3rd Thursday of the month we're gathering church planters, pastors, those who dream of leading a church and existing church leaders for a time of connecting, learning and encouragement.  

We'll have coffee ready at 10am and then have a speaker or round table topic at 10:30. We'll plan to talk about or hear from others on practical ministry related subjects like: effectively leading leaders; finding rest in the midst of a busy life; creating church cultures of repentance, gratitude, generosity...; and more.  Following that we'll have some time for Q and A and then prayer. We'll close out before noon which will give you time for lunch with your team or with one those you meet here. 

Look for a schedule of speakers and topics in the coming days!
