As a church, we are all about Jesus Christ and his mission to seek and to save the lost. As sinners who have been reconciled to God, we do not see ourselves as doing something new or novel; we simply see ourselves as joining with God in his historic work of redemption.
We believe that we have been given a ministry of reconciliation and renewal, and we seek not just to cultivate this kind of culture within our church for ourselves, but to take the good gifts that God has given us and share them with a world that desperately needs them through making disciples, multiplying neighborhood parishes, and planting churches.
Taylor and Robin Ince were introduced to the Sojourn Houston family of churches back in 2014 as Taylor was exploring his call to plant a church in Houston. At that point, Sojourn's leaders and the Inces together began to pray and dream about what planting a Sojourn church in the Galleria area could look like.
After launching a neighborhood parish in the Galleria neighborhood in 2015, Sojourn Galleria officially launched in January, 2016, when that first neighborhood parish multiplied into several neighborhood parishes. Since then, we have been seeking to grow in love for one another and faithfulness to the mission of the kingdom of God in our neighborhood, and in our city!
Our Family of Churches
Sojourn Galleria is one local church within Sojourn Houston, which is a family of churches seeking to share Jesus with our neighbors for the glory of God and the good of our city. Sojourn Houston churches are marked by shared beliefs, a shared mission and vision, shared values and a shared philosophy of ministry (the Neighborhood Parish).
Our Neighborhood Parishes
As a church, Sojourn Galleria is organized into smaller groups called neighborhood parishes, which we often refer to as the "backbone" of all that we do at Sojourn. Historically, the word "parish" has been used to refer to a geographic area with a minister. At Sojourn we recognize that the Bible teaches that all Christians are called to be ministers of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18). This is why we refer to groups of men and women seeking to minister Christ to their neighbors as Neighborhood Parishes. We do this by simply doing what healthy families do--by eating and spending time together, by loving and serving each other, and by loving and serving our neighbors.
Sojourn Galleria is a non-denominational church within the Sojourn Houston family of churches. In addition to our Sojourn Houston family, we believe that partnerships in the gospel are essential. To that end, we are also formally affiliated with the following networks (click a logo to visit their websites):
Our Church Partners
Without these church partnerships it would have difficult or impossible for us to plant. Thank you for putting your money where your mouth is and for helping, through us, to move Christ's kingdom forward in the Galleria, Houston, and around the world.
