Soma is a growing body of Jesus followers in western NC. We’re passionate about creating a diverse culture. We’re building a multi-ethnic, multi-generational church. Even though we are a nondenominational church, we are an ARC family church and we are part of the Hillsong Leadership Network. We started Soma in September of 2018. We launched Soma with 403 people attending on the first Sunday and 17 people gave their lives to Jesus on the first day! God grew Soma by 45% over the course of 2019. Our church family is currently around 500-600 people. Our average weekly attendance in March of 2020 was 350-380 on any given Sunday. We’re passionate about fulfilling the great commission and we are building a culture that says serving is our privilege and generosity is our joy.

Our tagline is ‘Uncommon Unity’. Our mission is to help everyone ‘Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose and Make a Difference’. Our strategy to living this mission out is broken down into four main parts and it looks like Sundays (worship gatherings), Soma groups (all ages and seasons of life), Growth Track (helping people find purpose) and our Dream Team (helping people make a difference). Our vision is to birth a family of churches that share a common vision, brand and set of values. Our current and first location is in Hickory, North Carolina. We’re located an hour north of Charlotte, an hour east of Asheville and an hour south of Boone.


We are looking for a leader of leaders who is passionate about the next generation. Someone who wants to make a huge difference in the lives of children and students every single week. Someone who wants to come alongside parents and facilitate growth in their kids’ lives. For us we’re all about the next generation. The youth always win.
