CATALYST FOR STUDENTS.
WE ARE A CATALYST FOR STUDENTS
WE WANT TO CREATE KINGDOM RHYTHMS
THAT GOD CAN USE TO CHANGE A LIFE.
A CAMP EXPERIENCE IS FOCUSED ON THE INDIVIDUAL STUDENT, WITH A FOCUS ON TEACHING, WORSHIP, & COMMUNITY.
A MISSION TRIP IS OTHERS-FOCUSED, WITH CULTURE, TRAINING & SERVING.
CITYREACH COMBINES BOTH OF THOSE FOR A MISSION CAMP YOUR STUDENT WILL NEVER FORGET!
LABORATORY FOR MINISTRY
A LABORATORY FOR MINISTRY IS A SIMPLE WAY FOR STUDENTS & LEADERS TO BRING TO LIFE WHAT THEY ARE LEARNING.
THIS GIVES THEM INSIGHT, PERSPECTIVE, & INSPIRES THEM TO TAKE SOME OF THESE IDEAS HOME TO CONTINUE SERVING.
AT CITYREACH, STUDENTS GET TO SEE WHAT DIFFERENT MODELS OF MISSION LOOK LIKE.
CHURCH PLANTING OR CHURCH REVITALIZATION IN DIFFERENT CONTEXTS AROUND THE COUNTRY CAN INSPIRE YOUNG PEOPLE TO PURSUE JESUS IN ALL WALKS OF LIFE, & SEE ANY CITY AS A POTENTIAL MISSION FIELD.
WHY SHOULD I BRING MY STUDENTS TO CITYREACH?
THE CITYREACH PARADOX
PHYSICALLY EMPTY, SPIRITUALLY FULL.
At CityReach events every year, we encourage our students & leaders to finish empty. God does not fill us up to satisfy us - He fills us up to pour us out. The CityReach Paradox is the heartbeat of our events, where we pour out all day physically & emotionally, then every night we are filled spiritually with the evening celebration.
It reveals a capacity that we didn't know we had. As we wring out everything we have for the city, we can realize how God fills us with something else. There is a bond that we build as we do this together.
We are physically empty, yet spiritually full.
CITYREACH CORE VALUES
All authority has been given by God. We submit to government and its officials because we look to Him as our ultimate authority. Leaders must have a positive attitude toward those who are in position above them to set the example. Everyone should be accountable to someone - that’s how God designed it!
Work in an established church is all about structure. Work in a church plant necessitates flexibility. In the early stages of development, some church plants are completely portable, setting up their services in a school gym or auditorium. When things are always changing, it’s important to be ready and willing to change with them. Adapting is an important part to what happens at CityReach every year. Sometimes God opens doors that we must be sensitive to at a moment’s notice. Those who don’t bend, break. And those who aren’t flexible may miss a huge opportunity for the sake of God’s Kingdom.
FREEDOM IN WORSHIP
