We see the verse from Esther 4:14 “For such a time as this.” as relevant for today. Because we see our city, our nation, and our world clearly at a Tipping Point, we need to be strategically proactive as the Church and be positioning for the Harvest.
That’s why we see this as the right time to create and build this City Reaching Center for City Vision and others to mobilize and train the Church in strategically reaching our entire city. We are looking for those pastors, churches, ministries, church planters, prayer leaders, denominational leaders, students, and lay leaders who want to partner together to be part of a movement to create this Tipping Point Now! in our city and across the nation and the world. Please join us in this quest to expand the Kingdom of God here and now “For Such a time as this.”
What is the City Reaching Center?
Picture a centrally located neutral ministry center used for mobilizing, educating, connecting, and empowering the Church of the Twin Cities and also used for raising up the next generation of Christian leaders. A place for Kingdom collaboration. A large hybrid multi-purpose space:
- Part war-room, strategy, and information center
- Part co-working, networking, connection, and meeting hub
- Part classroom and training center
- A model for other cities for their own city reaching efforts
The City Reaching Center is a place for the Church to pray, learn, connect, and collaborate to reach the city with the Gospel fully saturating every neighborhood, people group, and generation for the Kingdom.
City Vision has always championed true partnerships and the best model of ministry and the best model of being the Church, not just playing Church. We anticipate working onsite in the City Reaching Center on a variety of Kingdom projects with hundreds of local churches, pastors, denominational leaders, parachurch organization leaders, other non-profit entities, Christian schools, lay leaders, students, and interns.
Some of the ways the City Reaching Center will be used by City Vision and others:
- Perspectives classes
- Alpha classes
- Church planters networking meetings
- Pastors/leaders networking meetings and presentations
- Prayer meetings and retreats
- Pastors retreats
- Special church board/elders strategy planning meetings
- Denominational leaders networking meetings
- City Reaching event planning
- Citywide project and event planning
- Ministry coworking events
- Ministry book discussion groups
- Ethnic/immigrant pastors/leaders networking meetings
- Children’s mission/vision groups
- Bible studies and Christian classes
- Discover Your City Tours debriefing sessions
- Somali and Muslim outreach training and prayer groups
- Tibetan Buddhist outreach training and prayer groups
A place for Kingdom collaboration. A large hybrid multi-purpose space:
- All the tables, chairs, and furniture all on wheels allowing the room to be continually re-configured to enhance collaboration for the situation at hand or the size of the group from small groups to large classes.
- All the walls with a variety of large maps and charts of the Twin Cities, Minnesota, US, and the World showing harvest force and harvest field city exegesis information used to stimulate, strategize, and plan prayer, church planting, and outreach efforts over the next 30 years.
What’s your Kingdom dream for your city to be fully reached with the Gospel? Come join us on this Kingdom Quest!
City Vision has helped many churches and ministries worldwide raise millions of dollars for their ministry projects to be funded. Now we are asking you to help us fund the City Reaching Center which will be used as a blessing for the entire Twin Cities city reaching process and will serve as a model for other cities around the world in their own efforts to reach their cities.
In celebration of our 20 fruitful years of ministry, we are asking you to give to our special City Reaching Center project. We are conducting this special fundraising campaign beyond our normal City Vision operating budget.
$99,900 for City Reaching Center: Buildout, move-in costs, office furniture, equipment, and furnishings.

During a difficult time in the Book of Judges in the Bible, God raised up a small army of just 300 people to help create a tipping point. This small army went on to victory for the Lord led by Gideon. We feel that God can raise up another modern day Gideon 300 to help us with this project and create another tipping point to reach our city.
Please join us as we seek:
- 300 x $300 or more each giving from individuals and Christian businesses
- 30 x $300 or more each giving from churches/ministries
- 30 x $30 or more each giving from Christian college/seminary students
- $99,900 Total
THANKS FOR MAKING YOUR GIDEON 300 DONATION AND FOR MAKING THIS MINISTRY CENTER DREAM BECOME A REALITY FOR THE KINGDOM!!!!
