The Network developed out of congregations and ministries predominately in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). A growing list of ethnic and special focus ministries led MNA to create a division of ministry called Urban & Mercy Ministries, which Randy Nabors has helped to develop and lead for the past twenty years. 


The New City Network was formed In 2010, at a leadership conference of urban leaders.  Randy and Joan Nabors began to work full time for MNA and to build the Network in September 2012.

The leadership of the Network was chosen at the first leadership conference.  Those attending the leadership conference, held every other year, elect the board, which provides a team of seasoned urban leaders who will help determine the distribution of grant money to new church plants, develop leaders, and pursue other targeted goals of the Network.
