We exist to help you seek wisdom, build community, and join other leaders committed to healing their cities.
There is a growing, organic community of people who hunger for leading, working and creating out of a holistic and coherent life deeply rooted in the gospel. We have found one another through a number of loosely organized communities and networks--Faith and Work organizations, City based Leadership and Community organizations, Local churches developing holistic discipleship expressions, business leaders and entrepreneurs seeking to live out their Christian faith in their leadership and organizational life.
Many of us have been working in this ecosystem for years and deeply value the friendships we have made over the years . Others are entering into a new season of work and ministry in this space and seek wisdom support and guidance.
CityGate was born out of a desire by Denver Institute for Faith and Work founder Jeff Haanen, who found himself early in the launch of DIFW desiring the companionship and a collaborative learning laboratory with like-minded fellow travelers on the journey.
Our mission is to build a community of practitioners and leaders who invest in whole life discipleship, engage and resource one another, and who share a vision of communion and shalom for their work, their cities, and our culture.
We are a community of seekers and sages gathering at the gates of our cities to build communities, learn together, invest in relationships, and encourage human flourishing through our Christian faith, in our cities, and for all of life.
