Every week at Soma, we pray for a specific part of our city to be renewed through the presence and mercy of Christ. Sometimes, we pray for specific groups at Soma or organizations outside of our church. On this page, you’ll find helpful information about these groups as well as links or points of contact if you’d like to get more involved.

Soma Students

Soma Students exists to see the gospel change the lives of middle and high school students and to send them out to serve their schools and city with the message and mercy of Jesus. We meet the last Wednesday of every month from 6:30–8:00 p.m. Our location varies, so please reach out if you would like to join us. We would love to have you! If you’re interested in joining as a student or as part of our leadership team, please email Chris Shelor.


Nicaragua Vision Trip

Five people from Soma will be in Nicaragua from August 17–24 to explore the possibility of a partnership with Nicaragua Resource Network (NRN), an organization devoted to creating sustainable life change and long-term impact in Nicaragua. Our team will be meeting up with one of Soma’s partner missionaries, Hannah Welch, who has been serving with NRN for a year. The team will visit a church/school community, visit with those in leadership there, learn about their lives, and pray for and serve the community. If you have questions about this trip, please email Shelby Mandla.
