City Life Eastside
“David” is an urban teen growing up in a culture that tells him his role is only to focus on surviving rather than on achieving, to make as much money as possible and to be with as many women as he can. His parents provide very little guidance, he has almost no motivation to go to school, and he thinks it’s unlikely he will graduate. And yet, because David has put his faith in Jesus, he has been given new life in Christ.
Imagine how amazing it would be to see David 10 years from now serving as a volunteer in City Life and helping students grow in Christ! And so, we are committed to work hard to proclaim, teach, and admonish all our students to present them fully mature in Christ knowing that the task is surely too big unless Christ works powerfully in us.
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)
