Video: “Christ + City: Why the Greatest Need of the City Is the Greatest News of All”

Why does God seem to be calling so many people to cities? How should we think about and engage with the cities of the world?

Christ + City not only reveals to us an incredible opportunity, but also explains why God loves cities, how and why we should live in them, and what we can do to reach them for his glory.

Listen in as Pastor Jon Dennis, author of Christ + City, and others share their love for these cultural centers and their desire to see the kingdom of God take root in the city.
