How can Citylife help you love our neighbors?

The Neighborhood Outreach mission is to:

  1. Execute on Citylife's commitment to pursuing Gospel love and justice for the needy, suffering, and marginalized, as essential attributes of an authentic Christian faith

  2. Raise awareness and provide education around issues like homelessness, gender justice, educational justice, and foster care, to move hearts and inspire action

  3. Form and maintain service partnerships with vetted service providers; offer service opportunities and coordinate (and recruit) volunteers

  4. Connect like-minded congregants for mutual support and more effective outcomes; help create and support lay person-led ministries and partnerships

"[God] is still looking for people -- those who know what it is like to gain at the expense of somebody else when they did not deserve it -- to use what they have, at expense to themselves, for the benefit of others. That is what he wants. That is his vision."

Stephen Um, Micah for You (The Good Book Co. 2018), p. 40.

“To my surprise, there is a direct relationship between a person’s grasp and experience of God’s grace, and his or her heart for justice and the poor... [A]s I preached the classic message that God does not give us justice but saves us by free grace, I discovered that those most affected by the message became the most sensitive to the social inequities around them.”

Timothy, Keller, Generous Justice (Penguin Books 2010), Introduction, pp xxiii-xxiv.
