John Houmes, Lead Pastor

John is a native South Floridian. After going to college in the deep South, serving in cross-cultural church plants in East Nashville & London, and pastoring a multi-cultural church in an urban St. Louis, he returned to South Florida to plant New City Fellowship. His mission is to empower and equip followers of Jesus so that they can engage real people and real issues in a real world with the Gospel. John loves communicating God's Word and talking about the Good News of Jesus, the promises of God, racial reconciliation through Christ, and God's Kingdom agenda. He also enjoys English Premier League football (particularly Liverpool), photography, telling and hearing stories, and learning about cultures other than his own. John is married to Virginia. They have three children.  John has a Master of Divinity from Covenant Theological Seminary and has served in ordained pastoral ministry since 2010. Contact John at or follow him on Twitter.
