London is one of the most influential cities in the world. It also has tremendous Gospel need as only 4% of Londoners are committed followers of Jesus. The London City Team exists to help multiply transformational churches throughout the city through national partnerships, working primarily in church planting, sports ministry and arts ministry.
London City Team Mission: To make Christ genuinely known and serve as a catalytic partner with Gospel movements resulting in transformation of individuals, communities, churches, and the city.
London City Team Vision: To see the city of London transformed through partnering with Gospel movements.

How is this site strategic?
London is a global hub where people come to be educated and find work. As London goes, so goes the world, so Gospel witness is not only needed, but strategic. Local churches in London are desperate for humble and teachable workers to serve alongside of them in a variety of ministry settings.
