Purpose

CTC's vision is to see the gospel of Jesus Christ transform lives and impact cities. As cities grow, CTC's work is more crucial with each passing year. We prayerfully help leaders start and strengthen churches to advance the gospel together in their city.

As God moves people to cities, they are pressed together - practically, racially, economically, spiritually. In this new urbanized world it is possible to reach them all at once.

God calls us to be for the city, to love the city and to serve the city.

NEW & EXISTING CHURCHES

We provide further training to strengthen churches and connect them to other churches and ministries.

CHURCH PLANTERS

We recruit, assess, train and resource leaders to start churches in cities.

CHURCH NETWORKS

We build new and support existing networks that start more churches and connect with other ministries resulting in an ecosystem working together in their community.

ONGOING MOVEMENT

The gospel moves through the city, and the cycle continues as others desire to lead in loving their city and seeing it renewed.

CONNECTING GLOBAL LEADERS

Through our global network, leaders in places like Johannesburg, Mexico City, Tokyo, London and NYC encourage and learn from each other.

HEARTS, CHURCHES & CITIES RENEWED

As the Holy Spirit changes individuals and church communities, the city and its people flourish.


Mission statement

The mission of City to City is to help leaders start and strengthen churches to advance the gospel together in their city and develop and deliver content.
