WITH THE CITY
CityGate Vancouver works to form connections among local churches with each other and with civic leaders and organizations in Greater Vancouver. The purpose of these connections is to bring transformation to our neighborhoods and its people.
The Certificate in Missional Leadership is a three year program, offered through St. Andrews Hall, designed to help churches develop and grow into missional communities.
In partnership with Co:Here Housing, CityGate assists churches in the initial stages of developing affordable housing projects, exploring possibilities and options for initial funding.
