August 27, 2021


In light of the on-going pandemic and the effects it had on our registration numbers, the New City Music Conference committee regretfully decided we should take the responsible action of canceling the in-person sessions for our conference scheduled for Saturday, August 28, 2021.  After a series of prayer-led meetings, we felt that the only prudent action was to not bring people together from all over the region in the midst of the ongoing pandemic. We sincerely wanted to be good stewards of the resources afforded to us by our church and the New City Network.  

We are delighted to be able to offer a more cost effective experience via a series of videos professionally recorded by Solid Rock Live and edited by Ben Young. Our presenters Phil Bingham, Cal Reaves, Libby O’Neil, and Andrew Russell graciously decided to uphold their obligations to the conference by traveling to Chattanooga in spite of the circumstances. We will be at the church on Saturday, August 28th to record their sessions in a safe environment. Your registration will allow you to have full access to all recorded sessions, information packets, and resources that would have initially been distributed during the conference. Links and materials will be sent to the email you registered with by late September 2021.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and look forward to greeting you personally in 2023. In the interim year, we will be collecting data to better serve the growing needs of cross-cultural ministry and would value your feedback for future sessions. As we all continue to navigate living and worshipping as one in a pandemic, may the God of hope fill each of us with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit we may abound in hope.
