About Sojourn Church Midtown
Sojourn Church Midtown started in 2000, engaging the people of our urban neighborhoods with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We care about the souls of men and women first, but also physical needs, music, the arts, and community life. We exist to reach people with the gospel, build them together as a multicultural church, and send leaders, church planters, and missionaries all over the world as well as send our members into Louisville as witnesses to the gospel. Since 2012, Sojourn Church Midtown has been located in the Shelby Park neighborhood, which is a diverse and urban neighborhood in the most impoverished zip code of Louisville. The church has a conviction and a vision to be a place where all residents of Shelby Park feel loved and welcome, and since moving to Shelby Park, church leaders have been shepherding their members towards gospel reconciliation and discipleship across all cultural lines.
