About Us

About New City Network

New City Network was born out of a collective yearning from churches and ministries to band together, enhancing their understanding of best practices for cross-cultural ministry and fostering meaningful conversations. United by a shared vision, we’re committed to pursuing holistic well-being for those denied Biblical justice. Through our collaborative network, we support our members in championing justice and mercy, cultivating cross-cultural relationships, and promoting contextual worship rooted in scripture. With us, it’s more than just a partnership—it’s a likeminded community, a family committed to the shared calling of Biblical justice.

The New City Network was officially formed in 2010 at a leadership conference of urban leaders. Randy and Joan Nabors together with Robert Blevins began to build the Network in September 2012. Since that time, the Network has been devoted to aiding churches serving marginalized communities. Our efforts are guided by principles of Biblical justice and mercy and focused on community flourishing as defined by the community. 


The New City Network is a church support organization that serves isolated and under-resourced church leaders that are pursuing justice and mercy in their communities. We equip, connect, and encourage them through consulting, coaching, cohorts, and conferences.


We attract members who share our values of Biblical justice, contextual worship, cross-cultural relationships, and being rooted in Scripture.


We focus on the unique needs of diverse communities and emphasize genuine family relationships across ethnicity, class, and gender, ensuring a holistic approach to community development and worship.

Robert Blevins was a history teacher and coach for 13 years in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Feeling a call to ministry, he went on to become the program director at Hope for the Inner City, (a community development organization) for four years. These experiences in under-resourced communities prepared him to understand the unique challenges of walking with disenfranchised communities.
