The vision of the Soma Family of Churches is to see gospel saturation, so that every man, woman, and child has a daily encounter with Jesus in word and deed.

We believe the best way to pursue this vision is to establish a family of churches around the world who are committed to making disciples who make disciples to the glory of God. But starting a church is a difficult calling. Management consultant Peter Drucker said that church leadership was the most difficult and taxing profession he was aware of. The apostle Paul said of ministry, “For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death” (2 Cor 1:8–9). Many churches—especially young ones like many in our Soma family—have great zeal for church planting, but lack the capacity to fully develop leaders who will plant healthy churches and “run the race” well for the next 50 years.

Soma Sending wants to do just that: raise up and send out healthy leaders, who start healthy churches and make gospel-saturated disciples, across North America and beyond.
