Vision 2021

Jan 10, 2021


“As the church, we have abandoned our post. I believe God is realigning us back to our original purpose, the outline of Jesus’ ministry in Luke 4:18-19.” -Pastor Chris McRae

As current events unfold and we see the cultural trajectory of our nation, it is clear that the Church has lost its place as a cultural influence. With Jesus as the King, the purpose of the Church is His conduit for proclaiming the good news of the gospel, releasing healing to those who are hurting and declaring the faithfulness of the One, True God who dearly loves this world. We each have a part to play: God has chosen us for this time, in the place that we live, to love Him and love those around us. 

““The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”” ‭Luke‬ ‭4:18-19‬ ‭NKJV‬‬


Chris McRae
Lead Pastor, Elder
In his high school years, Chris was set free from anger and depression after an encounter with the Holy Spirit, and a passion was stirred in him to preach the good news of Jesus Christ to the broken and the lost. Chris is passionate about people- leading people to encounter the love of the Father, the truth of Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit. A second generation Pastor, Chris has a heart for equipping the body of Christ.
Chris is a graduate of Christ for the Nations and The King’s University. Chris first joined staff at Sojourn Church in Carrollton, Texas in 1996, and has served as Pastor of Children’s Ministry, Youth and Families. In January 2020, Chris began serving as Lead Pastor.
