The Soma Family of Churches is honored to welcome existing churches into relationship and ministry together as we make disciples, strengthen one another, and plant churches of missional communities towards gospel saturation. To serve churches well and to seek unity across our family of churches, Soma’s “adoption process” is relational and comprehensive. As a family of churches, we believe this process (and even its title) should feel as familial as possible. We look forward to getting to know you, celebrating your church’s strengths, and coming alongside you in areas of growth.
While the primary goal of this process is to welcome strong and unified churches into our family, we also want churches to become stronger and well-served by this process, even if they step out of the process.
The adoption process often takes between six and eighteen months, depending on a number of variables. You can find an overview and initial documents below. We are happy to answer any questions. We look forward to walking with you through this process!
