Stories of Impact- Portraits of Promise

Thousands of lives have been impacted since Christian City was founded in 1965 by a group of concerned citizens who built the first cottage for eight boys in need of a loving home. From the children and seniors who have lived at Christian City to volunteers, staff members, church families, and people of the community who have financially supported our ministries over more than five decades, there are many true stories of lives changed, promises delivered, faith strengthened, and hope received.

Today, Christian City is full of opportunities for people to live, thrive, get involved, serve and give. Here are a few of their stories in their own words. View videos, see photo slideshows and read their full stories here.
