At Sojourn, pastors oversee the doctrine, discipline, and direction of the church. These men may or may not be paid by the church, but they share the responsibility of shepherding our church with wisdom and integrity (Ephesians 4:1-16, 1 Peter 5).
We are committed to providing Sojourn's essential operations with a humility that reflects the character and nature of our God. The following staff member serves in his positions in a full-time capacity (thanks to the support of External Financial Partners and Sojourn Spring Branch Members' giving):
Tony is a gifted leader and is passionate about sharing God's story. He has over 10 years of ministry experience. In 2010, Tony planted and led a bilingual church in the Spring Branch area which was instrumental as a time of great learning and seeing people commit their lives to Christ in this community of faith. After being a church planting resident with the Houston Church Planting Network (HCPN) to get trained to plant a new church in Spring Branch, he along with a Team is starting Sojourn Spring Branch.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe the Church is marked primarily by submission to the Scriptures. The Bible is the pure Word of God, the only absolute authority for Christians, and all things within the church are governed/managed accordingly. As a broadly Reformed family of churches, we affirm three marks of a true church: (1) the faithful preaching and teaching of the Word, (2) the faithful administration of the Sacraments (Baptism and the Lord's Supper), and (3) the faithful exercise of church discipline. These marks, in addition to the Sojourn Houston values, characterize each and every Sojourn congregation.
The Sojourn Houston Confession of Faith receives the Nicene Creed, the Gospel Coalition Confessional Statement, and the 5 doctrinal distinctives of the Acts 29 Network. Although we do not require our members to agree on every point, the confession below forms the theological identity of Sojourn Spring Branch.
