Today we have some very exciting news. Our board has spent the last several months tirelessly praying, contending, and fasting for My City Church as we have sought God’s guidance in determining our new Lead Pastors. During this search, our desire has been to hear God’s fervent voice and what He is speaking about My City Church, our church family and over the city of Omaha. We believe unanimously that we have heard from God and the direction He wants to lead us.
We are proud to announce our new Lead Pastors to you today. They are an incredibly humble couple so please allow us a moment to share what we see in them. Their actions are consistently generous. When it comes to the way they express their love for Omaha, they are always passionate: passionate for Jesus, passionate about the people of Omaha, and passionate about My City Church. Their lives are faith-filled confessions of everything God has done, is doing, and will continue to do for His people.
Please join us in welcoming our new Lead Pastors, Elishaun and Kelly Nelson!
Pastors Eli and Kelly have been a part of My City Church before our official founding. They spent years praying over all of us before there was even a service or a building. The Nelson’s have been warriors who relentlessly contend for Omaha. We are absolutely thrilled for them to lead us into the future that God has for My City Church.
It is with humility and joy that we accept the Lead Pastor position at My City Church. We are excited and full of faith that God will continue to do amazing things within our church body and our city. The vision God has set before this strong and amazing body of believers is one of faith, hope, and love. We love Jesus, we love Omaha and we love My City Church.
My City Church, it is our honor to serve you, to challenge you, but also to press on to the mark of the high calling of God, knowing that God has called us to the city of Omaha and beyond. I cannot wait to look back 10 years from now and say "Wow. God was so faithful. God is so good and the best is yet to come"!
- Pastors Eli and Kelly Nelson
During the next 5 weeks, Pastors Eli and Kelly Nelson will begin to transition their current responsibilities in order to fully take on this role. On July 11th, we will be holding a special service commissioning them as our new Lead Pastors.
About My City Church
At My City Church, we have a simple mission - "to lift up Jesus in our city by loving people and empowering leaders in every sphere of life". Simply put, we want to LOVE GOD. LOVE PEOPLE. LEAD IN LIFE.
My City Church is a Bible-based church born out of the heart of Omaha. My City has been named one of America’s fastest-growing churches and is continuing to grow under the leadership of the unflinching and zealous Pastors Eli and Kelly Nelson.
The Nelson’s have created a culture in My City where those who are far from God can become close to Him. My City Church strives to create a home in Omaha for people to belong, believe in the radical love and grace of Jesus Christ, and be transformed to live to their fullest potential.
