Equipping the church to engage and serve the marginalized and hurting in our city.
We are For the City because we love the city.
For the City wants to see the body of Christ engaged in every issue of brokenness and injustice in our city. We empower people to care for others experiencing brokenness and resource nonprofits and grassroots initiatives toward that end.
