A group of like-minded churches committed to exalting Jesus and planting churches in YMCAs across the world. We are Churches In The Y (CITY). We do not just rent a room until we can build our own building, but we believe that God has called us to the YMCA for a great purpose!
Churches from all over the United States and all over the world. We are a movement of churches from Seattle, Orlando, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Memphis, Cincinnati and many more.
A church in the CITY Movement commits to five things:
- To strategically partner with the YMCA as a primary platform of ministry.
- To follow in belief and practice the doctrinal positions of the Lausanne Covenant and the mission statement of the World Alliance of the YMCA.
- To engage in a ministry philosophy to love, serve and care for the YMCA.
- To pursue healthy church multiplication throughout the global platform of the YMCA.
- To consider attending the Annual Silver Bay YMCA Network Conference for the purpose of mutual assessment and vision clarification
