missio dei 2017

let it grow


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.


On Sunday, June 11th we gathered together as a Church to bring our special offering, serving cards, and giving pledges.


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 toward three specific categories: Partnerships (local & global missions projects), People (staffing and organizational development), and Places and Spaces.

We intend to expand the auditorium and lobby space here at 777 N. Green Street. The expansion will double our current seating capacity.  Architects have estimated this renovation will cost $1.5 million. This addition is a more cost effective expansion than purchasing a second auditorium space at this time.

In addition to the auditorium expansion, the new addition will house a two-story atrium and revamped entryway, a prayer garden along with a prayer tower, and a coffee shop located in our lobby.  Proceeds from the coffee shop will contribute toward our Missions program.

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
Through July 15th 2016, 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.

Let’s look for opportunities to use our time and abilities to serve people in this season.  Whether it’s getting involved on team here at City Church or in one of our community opportunities, is God asking you to give your time?

Go teams

Serve on a GO team. GO teams serve on Sundays. These teams include everything from kid’s ministry, worship team, production teams, to hosting people. Requirements include completing Growth Track, and to sit in one serve in one.

Life Groups

Lead a Life Group. Life Groups are small community groups that do life together and have conversations that help us grow. Leading a Life Group requires completion of Growth Track and a Life Group leader training session. This is a weekly commitment for an eight-week session. 


Participate in a summer serve day. Join our City Care team as we serve Chicago. We feed the homeless every month, serve Otis Elementary School, and do service projects around the city. City Church Chicago is going on a missions trip to Thailand in November with Empower Ministries.


Develop your leadership at City Church Chicago. If you feel called to God’s mission but need to grow, check out our Hillsong Night College classes. Southeastern University offers a fully-accredited bachelor’s degree program in Church Leadership here at City Church Chicago, or check out our City Church Chicago internship program.
