CityLights Church: A 72 Hour Miracle

$60,900 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 189 people in 49 months


"Great churches are not built on the gifts and talents of a few, but on the sacrifices of many."


Today, we have been blessed with a unique opportunity. Midwest Bible Church is prepared to support our fundraising efforts in order to keep God's vision moving forward, with YOUR help. In the next 72 hours, Midwest Bible Church is ready to match dollar for dollar, every dollar we raise, up to $30,000 dollars. Will you come alongside us to bring the gospel to Chicago? In 72 hours, we believe 300 individuals donating $100 each can make this miracle happen!!!


Please partner with us in prayer for our church and our city as we continue the work God has entrusted us with. We have firm faith that within the next 72 hours through faith, prayer, selflessness and sacrifice CityLights will be able to continue to shine it's light on Chicago.

What's our story?

When the Lord placed a vision on our hearts to start CityLights Church back in 2009, we never could have foreseen how the God "who is able to do far more than we ask or dream" would use His church to advance His kingdom here in Chicago. Through a group of twelve school-aged teens, God displayed his faithfulness and grew that small young adult group into the CityLights Church you see today.


Three years later, God continues to do great things here in Chicago and a great work is taking shape. So much so, that we were bursting at the seams at our previous campus. In order to accommodate our growth, we currently rent out North Grand High School in Chicago as well as maintaining our Church offices at a separate facility at the cost of around $8,000 a month. An opportunity to purchase a property has come to us, and we believe this is a necessary and financially feasible step for our church body. God has built the body, but now, we need a home. Join us on this walk of faith.

I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone that sacrificed with us. As I usher up prayers of "THANKSGIVING" to God, I'm reminded of this scripture:

He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce "THANKSGIVING" to God. (2 Corinthians 9:10-11, ESV)

Your generosity has produced much thanksgiving to God!

THANK YOU EVERYONE FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!
