Restore Christian Church, Jacksonville, NC
Waypoint is partnering with the Eastern NC Christian Men’s Fellowship to plant a church in Jacksonville, NC. Roger Burns is the lead planter. An hour north of Wilmington, Jacksonville is a growing city of more than 80,000 and home to Camp Lajeune, a large Marine training facility. With a population averaging under 24 years of age, it has been called “America’s Youngest City.”
Roger recently completed a one-year residency with another Waypoint church plant, Two Rivers Church of Christ, in nearby New Bern, NC. Roger was also a member of the 10-month Church Planting Residency Cohort with Passion for Planting. The launch date for this project is projected for March 19th, 2017.
