2 Chronicles 7:14 (New International Version)

14 If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land


CityLight is a spirit filled, spirit led organization that seeks to be a Catalyst Connecting Christ to the Culture for Community Change.  It Is our desire to see our generation changed by the power of the Holy Spirit. The ministries that we are involved in, all seek to bring people to the full knowledge of and relationship with Jesus Christ. We seek to fulfill the two Great Commandments and the Great Commission.


CityLight Prayer Groups


CityLight is setting up prayer circles across the country. In each community, a prayer leader is being identified and that person then selects twelve additional leaders who agree to pray for one hour each month. Ideally, those twelve leaders would then set up their own prayer circles (ministry) and this would continue to spread. Leaders would be expected to maintain regular contact with the National office of CityLight and to attend such meetings, orientations or training session as may be necessary from time to time.

Family Vision

The Family Vision Weekend helps families develop their unique multi-generational vision and mission and that becomes the core of their children’s belief system. It not only strengthens the family unit but also provides a clear method of how to pass the vision and mission on to each succeeding generation, thus bringing purpose to the children’s lives.

The result of developing the family vision is that it makes the family more attractive than all the other alternatives. Being part of the family team becomes more important than any other option. It captures the children's hearts and imaginations.

Christmas in Iraq 

CityLight is supporting Project Combat Christmas by solicting donors to buy Christmas gifts for our servicemen.  Here is an excerpt from letter written by Chaplain Derrick Riggs.

    "Christmas for soldiers has been difficult throughout the decades. The Christmas spirit that fills your families and homes has found its way to foxholes, bombed out buildings, hospitals, ships, frozen fields and islands from both World Wars, Korea, Viet Nam and over the past few years out in the desert of Iraq. Though a soldier deployed over Christmas can't be with his or her family at this joyous time of the year, it's still Christmas. The smells are different, the sights and sounds are nothing like back home, but the love a solider feels from family, friends and Supporters from home is still treasured."
