Introducing CityCom’s First Facility

Some things just have to be seen before they become real (kind of like a LeBron James championship).

Just a little over two years ago, City Community Church was born out of so much hope, pain, and conviction. Nathan and I knew we wanted to make a strong opening statement, so when the opportunity emerged to partner with Mission of Mercy in La Ceiba, Honduras, we took it. Even though we didn’t have the resources.

Mission of Mercy’s work in La Ceiba was nothing more than an unformed mass of God-inspired passion and imagination. A perfect reflection of CityCom. Not only could we help La Ceiba grow, maybe we could all grow together.

Two years later, our little “startup” has sponsored over 60 kids and brought two teams to interact in person.

But the most overwhelming realization undoubtedly occurred when Nathan and I stood just outside this new, two-story building attached to Lilles de los Valles church and realized…

…this is CityCom’s first facility.

We still don’t own any property back in Indy, but thanks to the outrageous generosity of so many CityCom’ers, we’ve somehow helped a little church in a poverty-ridden slum in La Ceiba, Honduras create a place to offer real hope to their community. (If you’ve ever given one dime to CityCom you’ve given to La Ceiba). I think that’s pretty dang cool.

And yet I’m 100% certain they’ve given us more.

I pray our parallel tracks continue with La Ceiba, Honduras, because what’s beginning to happen here is beautiful. Hopeful. God-full. Exactly what our city needs, too.

  1. I LOVE that CityCom’s first facility is overseas. What an awesome testimony of God’s heart and His provision on either side of the ocean.
