As pastors Jeanne & Jarrett share in the video, we are as committed as ever to the Ready For More vision, yet we are pausing for now in order to hold the balance of believing in the vision God gave us while also being sensitive to an ever-changing reality in a hurting world. We are prayerfully discerning next steps and will update you as soon as possible.
As we look back on the story of our church, one phrase comes to mind: “Only God!” God has provided for us above and beyond our wildest dreams. And as we look ahead at where God is leading us, we sense yet again that He is calling us out into greater faith. He is inviting us to make room for more people to find and follow Jesus.
Starting Soul City Church has changed our lives forever. We are not the same people we once were. We are beyond grateful to God for the privilege of being a part of this great faith adventure. And we believe that every follower of Jesus deserves the opportunity to experience the same.
We are inviting you to join with us, and with God, as we expand the vision and ministry potential of our church. We believe God has given us the vision to launch two new Soul City churches over the next two years—one to the west and one to the north. We sense He is inviting us to build a House of Hope at our West Loop church to provide a safe and sacred space for help, hope and healing for people inside and outside the walls of Soul City Church. And we believe God is inviting us to develop a Soul City Studio to create new resources to be shared with you and others around the world.
Our greatest desire for Ready for More is to see our church grow closer with God by praying bigger prayers than we’ve ever prayed before. Our hope is to see your faith grow like never before as you partner with God in this great faith adventure.

Ready For More is a two-year faith-raising initiative for Soul City Church. Ready For More has two goals. Primary goal, 100% participation, each of us grow closer to God; secondary goal, raise $9 million to expand our ministry capacity. Through the Ready For More faith-raising initiative we will launch two new Soul City Churches-to the west and north-and we will build a physical House of Hope and Soul City Studio at our West Loop church. Ready For More will allow us to expand our reach, leading more people into a transforming relationship with Jesus.
Soul City remains as committed as ever to the Ready for More vision, however we are pausing the initiative for now in order to care and serve those impacted by COVID-19. We are prayerfully discerning next steps and will update you as soon as possible. For a complete update from Pastors Jarrett and Jeanne, click here.
When God gave Soul City the vision to build a physical House of Hope as part of Ready for More, we had no idea how vital this ministry would become. And while we have not yet built a physical House of Hope, we have moved forward with BEing a House of Hope for our community during COVID-19. Click here to see all the ways Soul City is responding to COVID-19.
Thank you for giving to Ready for More even in the midst of a difficult time and season in our world. Your commitment and faithfulness to the vision of Soul City Church is remarkable. Your gifts are being stewarded for the designated purpose of Ready for More and are laying the foundation for us to relaunch the initiative as soon as the time is right.

This will allow us to greatly expand our mission to lead people into a transforming relationship with Jesus. We will launch two Soul City churches over the next two years—one to the west and one to the north. It will allow us to build a physical House of Hope and Soul City Broadcast Studio at our West Loop church. We believe God is calling us to make more room for people to find and follow Jesus.
The vision of Soul City Church has always been to be one church in multiple locations. God has made it clear that it is time for Soul City to make more room for more people to find and follow Jesus. We will launch two new Soul City churches over the next two years—one to the west and one to the north. The resources raised through Ready for More will be used to secure and renovate space for each of the new church buildings, hire staff for each location, and provide ministry expenses for the initial launch phase, after which both churches will become financially self-sustaining.
God has given our church a vision to build a House of Hope at our West Loop church to provide a safe and sacred space for help, hope and healing for people inside and outside the walls of Soul City Church.
This new space will also include a broadcast studio for Soul City to create and launch new resources like original worship music, podcasts, ministry training tools, and livestreams to be shared with you and others around the world.
