2000 years ago, Jesus’ followers were caught up in an adventure that led them daily out of their comfort zones and into the homes, the pain, the fears, and the struggles of the most marginalized and broken persons of their society. Wherever His followers went, they brought “GOOD NEWS”—despite brokenness, sin, and shame, the “hurting ones” were not abandoned by God, nor would they be by His people.

CityLights is a ministry aimed at drawing collegians and graduates to a more authentic witness on campus and a lifetime of doing justice and preaching grace.
The ethnically diverse communities of our modern cities are the ideal training grounds for a new generation who will learn to bring the best of their academic & technical training to bear on the pressing needs of our neediest communities.

• In 1800, only 3% of the world’s population lived in major cities.
• In 1900, only 9% lived in major cities.
• In 2000, over 50% of the world’s population lived in major cities, and that number is growing!

As the world comes to the cities, so must we. CityLights will help you be ready when you get there.
