Our goal is that your vision will match our mission which is to connect your group with one of our groups in the spirit of equipping, encouraging, and empowering each other for greater acts of service during your service trip as we strive together to connect the body of Christ across cultures.
CityConnexx (CCX) facilitates Christian community
transformation through short-term service.
Jesus told us to love our neighbor. Here at CityConnexx we believe Jesusí command to love our
neighbor (as one who is like ourselves) is actually an enormous challenge,
especially since many of our neighbors are quite un-like ourselves. As a matter
of fact, our social world is structured in such a way that connections across
economic/educational/social difference are difficult and unnatural.
Times of intentional short-term service across lines of
difference provide a means for supernatural connection. From a Christian
perspective these intentional acts of respectful, honoring, collaboration are
the natural result of discipleship. That is to say, obeying Christ involves connecting across lines of difference in order to work
together for Godís good purposes in a community. As we do this we all grow more into the
image of Christ.
CityConnexx creates connections between people who in the
normal course of events would never connect in a significant way. These
connections across lines of difference provide a transformational foundation
for everyone involved.
Partner with us in 2017 to connect through a short-term
service experience. We invest the time and energy to assure a good match and
experience between host and guest communities. Our trips begin at $250 for a 3 night/4 day experience and range to $325 for a 6 night/7 day experience if you register
and we receive your deposit before December 15, 2016.
We look forward to hearing from you.
We partner with local ministries in marginalized communities in the United States in order to facilitate long term Christian community transformation. We do this through networking, collaboration, education, training and short term service experiences.
