City Gates Components

There are several ways to participate in the City Gates Initiative. We lay the opportunities before you. You decide how your needs, time and resources draw you in. We have designed these components so that you can engage in all, some or one of them. There is no mandatory sequence, but all are developed to “snap together” with the others in a meaningful continuum.

Learning & Engagement Opportunities:

CONFERENCES: If our components came together to make up a body, our annual conferences would be the heart. A City Gates conference brings hundreds of people together from all fields of work, and restores the oxygen of purpose, and the shared-heartbeat of God's mission to those who long to spend their whole life living meaningfully on their natural pathways of life.

Collectives are distinct in that they reflect the idea that understanding is clearest when Christ’s body works together to share perspective and discernment. Read More...
