Conversations: Mark Jobe on Mega City “Flow” in Urban, Diverse-Life Churches

October 2, 2014

We are excited to continue a new Leadership Network blog series called Conversations on Church Innovations.” These video and audio posts feature candid conversations with innovative church leaders from across the country talking about the areas of ministry they are passionate about.

Mark Jobe - for Bio

Mark Jobe is the Lead Pastor of New Life Community Church in the city of Chicago, IL. He and his wife Dee have seen New Life grow from a handful of people to several thousand meeting at 21 campuses with 36 worship services each weekend. Mark is the founder of New Life Centers, an organization focused on helping youth in underserved areas of Chicago. Mark and his team are working to see a movement of life giving churches that transform mega cities of the world. Mark holds a Masters degree from Moody theological Seminary and a Doctorate degree from Bakke Graduate University.

Leadership Network Director Greg Ligon had the opportunity to talk with Mark Jobe about life in a mega city, church life, and the beauty of diversity. With a heart to unify the “tribes” of mega city, Chicago you can feel the passionate, pragmatic and personable approach that Mark takes for the movement of the church in his area – “…it’s the idea of a river flowing through the city.” There are some great shares about the “waters” that have shaped the movement in Mark’s heart along this journey.  You will also want to hear about his upcoming book ‘Unstuck’. Marks says “…don’t try to microwave the leadership movement…” – this is going to be a great book to help leaders get unstuck in those seasons with little to no movement.  Enjoy this Conversation!
