CityConnexx is based in Denver so we know our city pretty well. We'll take you places and show you things that will amaze you and your team. We love working and worshipping here with dozens of ministry partners across the metro area. When folks ask us what we do, we call it "Workship". Give us a week and you'll experience workship too. You will find plenty of opportunities to serve and be served. And with long, low humidity, bright sunny summer days you will find that out West we work hard and play hard. Come join us in the Mile High Rockies. But bring your water bottles and sunscreen, oh and Bibles too.

If you look closely, you will find the same struggles and problems that
affect any other urban area. Colorado currently has the fastest-growing
rate of child poverty in the U.S. with the largest number of homeless
school-aged children. Many of these teens are living on the streets, and
almost half struggle with some form of substance abuse. Homelessness in
Denver doesn't end there- the population of homeless families is
drastic. In 2009 roughly 12,000 families in Colorado were homeless.
