Coaching for urban churches

Cities on Hilltopsí mission is to equip urban and other low-income churches in the U.S. and Canada to do church in culturally appropriate ways that empower them to be healthy, effective, self-supporting, and reproducing.

  • Church plant. If your church or conference is launching one or more new church plants in a low-income community, Cities on Hilltops can help to equip the church planting team as well as to work with the sponsoring group to build a culturally viable shared strategy and to coach your leaders through the planting process.
  • Multi-site church. A promising strategy for reaching urban neighborhoods is for multi-site churches to open new sites in those neighborhoods. While much of the DNA of multi-site churches can be effectively transplanted into low-income neighborhoods, there will have to be important differences in discipleship strategies, leadership development, and organization. Cities on Hilltops can coach leaders from both the new site and the mother church in developing a culturally appropriate strategy for launching the new site.
  • Existing congregation. When a traditional congregation-based urban church is interested in seriously exploring transitioning to becoming a network of missional communities let mostly by indigenous leaders, Cities on Hilltops can help you evaluate whether your congregation is a good candidate for this transition. If your leaders prayerfully determine that God is leading you in this direction, Cities on Hilltops can coach your leaders through the transition.
