In the spring of 2018, City Church will open a second location on the east side of Tallahassee. This is the next step in our mission to be For the Gospel and For the City, by connecting people to the local church and the truth of who God is. The east side of town is growing and multiplying in homes, schools, businesses, and places of life. As our church grows, we will join in the multiplication and send a group, called a Launch Team, to start a second campus in Tallahassee. We're praying that God draws more people to Himself and that we see lives changed as we share the Gospel with the east side of the city.
We're excited to share that Matt Crawford is the Campus Pastor of the East campus! Watch this video (to the right) from Lead Pastor Dean Inserra to learn more about Matt and his new role at City Church.

As we prepare to launch the East campus, we're committed to sending staff members and church leaders who will serve the campus and provide care and leadership for those who call the East campus home.
City Church isn't simply going to the East side of town. We're sending people to live on mission and to help launch the East campus. The Launch Team is a group of people who make an advanced commitment to be part of the East campus in specific, significant ways. Our goal is to see at least 200 individuals join in the start of a second City Church campus to reach more of Tallahassee with the Gospel.
What are the commitments of joining the Launch Team?
Commit to attending the East campus for a minimum of one year. Invite friends, neighbors, co-workers, and the people God has placed in your life who need to hear the Gospel and know Jesus. As a church family, we are called to continue meeting together and growing in the community of one another. Launch team members commit to actively engaging in the life of the East campus.
Be a catalyst for launching the East campus through serving. Launch team members commit to serving in a variety of ways: on Sunday mornings teams, leading and hosting City Groups, and serving behind the scenes. When you serve, you impact someone else's church experience and grow in leadership and spiritual maturity. Serving is an opportunity for us to grow in the likeness of Christ and follow the attitude of humility we see in Jesus.
Launch Team members practice generosity by committing to financially giving to City Church. Every follower of Jesus is called to give of his or her finances unto God. It takes resources to grow and launch a church campus and to create environments in which people can hear the Gospel. City Church leadership commits to being good stewards of financial generosity and helping launch team members determine their best plans for supporting their campus.
