There are a number of ministries that have emerged from within New City fellowship, but are now technically independent.
Hope For the Inner City
Recognizing that the challenges of poverty are often deep and intertwined, Hope takes a balanced, Christ-centered approach to inner-city ministry. We start with mercy ministry, or emergency relief. We attempt to meet the immediate physical needs of the poor, which includes helping them to find housing, food and medical aid. At the same time, we encourage economic development; lifestyle change from dependency to self-sufficiency. We address the long-term social development, which includes financial literacy, career coaching and home ownership counseling. By meeting the immediate needs while also addressing long-term development, we envision Chattanooga’s inner city transformed by the love of Jesus Christ.

Chattanooga Sports Ministries
CSM began in 2006 as a summer soccer league for inner city girls. Six years later, we’ve expanded CSM’s Summer Soccer League to minister to both boys and girls, teaching them sports and life skills both on and off the field. We’re keeping our eyes open for how CSM can expand in the future, but right now we’re focused on how we can give 130 boys and girls one of the most memorable summers ever – because there’s no place like home field.
