WHAT IS MISSIO DEI?

Missio Dei is latin for the "Mission of God". Here at City Church Chicago we are on mission and full of faith to see the Gospel preached and disciples made. Our hope is that you would join your faith with ours as we believe God to provide everything we need to do all that God has asked us to do. Missio Dei is our annual giving campaign here at City Church Chicago.


WHEN IS MISSIO DEI?

On Sunday, June 24th, we will begin pledging and giving toward expansion at City Church, to step into everything that God has for us.


WHAT IS THIS YEAR'S MISSIO DEI OFFERING GOING TO ACCOMPLISH?

Pastor Kent and Alli, our pastors, leaders and board are unified behind the vision for our next step forward as a church. This years Missio Dei offering will go towards the expansion at City Church.


HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?

T H I N K   H I G H E R
Consider and be aware of what God may be trying to get to you, so that He can bring it back into His House through you. In just a few short weeks we have already seen people receive unexpected tax returns, refunds from utility companies and unexpected opportunities to receive funds that were not previously available. Perhaps you have the ability to sell some belongings or have a bake sale if your income is relatively fixed. If you're a business owner, consider believing for additional contracts over the coming weeks.

P R A Y   B I G G E R
As we think higher, we can also pray bigger prayers and believe that God is able to bless us abundantly. Align your prayers with God's mission in this great city and watch Him do what only He can do!

G I V E   G R E A T E R
We have the opportunity to respond to what God has provided us for putting our faith into action by bringing our best offering, becoming a part of this monumental season as we give greater than we have ever before.

S E R V E   S T R O N G E R
Participate throughout the Missio Dei season with special serving opportunities and join a City Church Chicago GO-Team!

Pray Bigger


uniting our faith with great expectation

Pray Bigger


uniting our faith with great expectation


We are praying alongside Paul’s ancient prayer to the Ephesians.

When we understand how great God’s love is toward us, then we overflow in love to others, giving generously to the mission of God.

Ephesians 3:20 (TPT)

Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.


Pray for supernatural resource and favor
I pray that he would unveil within you the unlimited riches of his glory and favor until supernatural strength floods your innermost being with his divine might and explosive power.

Pray that you would rest in his love and give from a place of peace, not obligation or striving
Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life.

Pray that God’s love would fill you completely and overflow to others, that you would feel urgently that others in Chicago need to know his love.
Then you will be empowered to discover what every holy one experiences—the great magnitude of the astonishing love of Christ in all its dimensions. How deeply intimate and far-reaching is his love! How enduring and inclusive it is! Endless love beyond measurement that transcends our understanding—this extravagant love pours into you until you are filled to overflowing with the fullness of God!

Pray for bold faith and big dreams to step into more as you think higher, pray bigger, give greater, and serve stronger.
Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.

Praise him for his goodness and thank him for his provision
Now we offer up to God all the glorious praise that rises from every church in every generation through Jesus Christ—and all that will yet be manifest through time and eternity. Amen!
