As we walk by faith, living out God’s vision and values for Sojourn, we have 16 CONFIDENT HOPES for the future of our church. Over the next 3-5 years we are calling our church to pray, plan, and act toward these hopes.

Bible to life | Every member is daily communing with God by reading, engaging, and memorizing His word | Every member is submitting their life to Scripture.
2 | MULTI-GENERATIONAL
Having a more accurate representation of the generational demographics of Fairfax where we value and engage all generations and life-stages.

5 | EVERY PERSON CONNECTED IN TRANSFORMATIONAL COMMUNITY
