Sozo New Covenant Fellowship
Sozo New Covenant Fellowship was founded in 2010 by Pastor Tony Evans, author of the New York Times best-selling book Facing the Giants. The church was started in Evans’ hometown of Tucker, Georgia, and has grown significantly since then. In fact, at the time of this post, Sozo New Covenant Fellowship was ranked among the top 10 fastest-growing churches in the US, according to Outreach Magazine.
It is a non-denominational, inter-denominational, multi-cultural, Christ-centered, Spirit-filled, Spirit-led church and ministry dedicated to proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ and building God’s kingdom. This mission is carried out by means of bible-based teaching and preaching, active prayer, worship, equipping the saints for ministry, and ministering to the needs of hurting people in the community through our uniquely designed Sozo ministry.

Since its inception in 1929, New Covenant Fellowship in Tucker, Georgia, has been an independent, Biblical, dispensational, and premillennial, local church. It’s a close-knit family that loves the Lord, loves the Word of God, and loves the souls of men. This love manifests itself regularly in several ways. First, they gather together weekly to worship the Lord and study His Word. Second, they desire to spread their love to others and share their faith. They do this through an active home visitation program, an evangelistic testimony program, a youth group, and other outreach efforts. Third, they are a financially supporting member of the North American Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches.
