A BRICK IN HIS CHURCH

Our dream is to see God grow a movement of disciples multiplying disciples in their networks, the next generation, new cities, & the nations! And Jesus has been doing that right in front of us! We've seen over 300 people baptized in the last 5 years. We've gotten to plant 3 churches and 1 of them is planting their first church this year! We're sending 3 long-term missionaries to unreached people groups! God has had His hand on our ministry and continues to transform lives by His grace!

We believe the next step we are being called to is to move to a new location to create more space to see more people meet Jesus & grow in Him. We have seen the evidence that in our current building we are not able to reach out to people or to plant churches the way God is calling us to.  We know that with the increase of space we will have the tools to impact and be a part of the Gospel transforming  lives throughout our city and world on a whole new level.

We want to see God grow a movement of disciples multiplying disciples in their Networks, the next generation, new cities and the nations.  A new building will have a direct impact on each and every one of those elements of our vision.

We want you to be a part of this vision!

We are asking you to join us in this huge step God is calling us to take at Citylight

Next Generation:

Our current kids ministry space has been great and the ministry is impacting families in some unbelievable ways! BUT…The space we have is tight and there are new families that have visited and not returned because we are too packed in our classrooms.  The new building would allocate over 8,000 square feet for kids ministry, which triples our current kids space!  This would provide classrooms, gathering space, check in area and increase our security layout.  All of these things will immediately impact our new families and help them to connect with our ministry as well as bless current families!
 
Our college ministry, Salt Company, often fills the entire gathering space on Tuesdays. Can you imagine the impact we will have on College and young adults with a gathering space that is double or triple what we currently have?  When Citylight started, there were over 30,000 students in the city of Lincoln, and less than 1000 were active within a local church.  In these 5 years we have over 500 students active with our church and with a new gathering space, the skies the limit to how many college students we can reach, raise up, & release out to make Jesus famous where He takes them next.

Networks:

Each of us have a network that God has placed us in. Neighborhoods, workplaces, & friendships. He has given each of us a special place where we are called to share our lives and to share the Gospel.  As we create relationships, we are able to share the Gospel.
BUT…it is often hard to find seats on Sunday morning to share with a friend. It can be hectic to find them, connect with them, locate a seat and settle in together. Our dream is to have a space that would sit 800-1000 to open up new seats to be shared with our networks.

New Cities:

We love planting churches! And we are praying over a couple of new church plants in the near future.  We know God is calling us toward cities like Kearney and we're getting ready for more!  
BUT… the last three churches we planted were really costly. Without having a strong central base & foundation, sending church plants out can cripple our church & hurt our health. With growing into a bigger space, we gain more stability to increase our sending capacity! We're confident that the new building would allow us to sustainably plant more churches

Nations: 

Our mission team and our development of missionaries is growing significantly. We're asking Jesus to raise up & send out 150 long terms goers to unreached people groups in the next 10 years. We want to be a part of God reaching the nations & spreading His Gospel to every corner of the world.  

BUT… in order to send that many people, we've got to invite a lot of people into discovering God's heart for the nations, developing them, & deploying them into their unique contribution towards the nations. Some will be welcomers. Some will be prayers. Some will be senders and some will be goers. But the larger number of people we have, the more people we can invite into joining into this mission!
