LEVERAGE YOUR LIFE FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD
LEVERAGE YOUR LIFE FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD
City Church is committed to taking the gospel to Tallahassee, and to a world that is waiting to hear the name of Jesus Christ. We do this first by living on mission and sharing the gospel here in our city. We also do this by sending trips throughout the year, from short-term week-long trips, to long-term commissioning of missionaries who are sent to plant churches and make followers of Christ in other nations.
Jesus tells us to “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirt,” (Matthew 28:19). Jesus sent out his disciples - those who followed him faithfully - to teach others the truth about the Son of God. His Word sends us out, too. Living a life on mission for the gospel starts at home, right where we are, but it doesn’t stop there. The more that we tell those around us about who Jesus is and what He has done for us, the more likely we are to be compelled to take this message to those who have no access to the gospel otherwise. As the apostle Paul writes, “How, then, can they call on him they have not believed in? And how can they believe without hearing about him?” (Romans 10:14)
What did Paul say next? “And how how can they hear without a preacher? And how can they preach unless they are sent?” (Romans 10:15). The world is waiting to hear about Jesus Christ our Savior. As we grow in the gospel together as a church, we also send one another out on mission. We want to see our city transformed by the love of God and the power of Christ. We also want to see people of all ages using their lives — including their gifts, skills, passions, and opportunities — to take the gospel beyond Tallahassee. God may be leading you to go for a week, a month, a year, or a lifetime. We’re committed to equipping you for this mission that God has placed before each of us, for his glory.
Living on mission for Jesus begins right here!
You are called to live your life for the glory of God, with the gospel at the center of it all. In the classroom, at the office, on the playground, in your home — wherever you go, the gospel goes with you.

There are many ways to be sent for the gospel, right here in Tallahassee. We partner with like-minded organizations in our city to meet real needs and to tell those around us about Jesus.
Through our Community Partners, we are able to engage in missional efforts and gospel issues like orphan care, poverty, unplanned pregnancy, special needs ministry, and more.
Church planting as domestic missions.
Why church planting?
Opportunities for domestic missions.
In partnership with the North American Mission Board, we support new churches being planted in New Orleans that will reach the city with the gospel in their local contexts. The metro New Orleans area is home to over 1 million people, but not nearly enough gospel-centered churches to reach these 1 million with the gospel.
City Church supports three of the 29 currently active church plants in New Orleans: Connect Church, Lakeshore Church, and Immanuel Community Church.
Salt Church is a new church plant coming to Gainesville, FL, with a mission to reach local university students as well as families and professionals in the city with the gospel of Jesus. Between short-term trips and sending college students to be part of this new church, we’re excited to see many more people in Florida reached for Christ through our partnership with Salt Church.
London is home to over 8 million people in the city, with over 11 million in the greater London area. Over 300 languages are spoken and hundreds of nationalities represented in this global city. At the same time, less than 2% of Londoners believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
City Church is supporting Redeemer Queen’s Park, a new church coming to Northwest London in 2020. Through church planting, as well as through sending missionaries on mid-term and long-term trips with the International Mission Board, we’re joining in the opportunity to see this global city reached with the gospel. As people come and go from London, the hope of Christ goes with them, and we pray to see many nations transformed with the gospel because of mission work happening in London.
One More Child serves children and families facing poverty, homelessness, and abuse through human trafficking around the world. If you have a passion for global mission through these efforts, join in one of the many trips happening throughout the year, going to Africa, South America, and Europe.
Through our partnership with One More Child, church members have the opportunity to go individually alongside people from multiple churches across Florida, or to go with a team from City Church.
We’re in the process of planning trip dates for 2019 and 2020. Let us know if you’d like to coordinate a team to serve on a global trip with One More Child!
