What We Do
Meet Local Needs
Cityteam is founded on meeting local needs. Our programs in San Jose, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Oakland, and Portland offer help and hope to those in need with hot meals, shelter, recovery programs or addiction treatment centers, clothing, hygiene items, and so much more. Each city has customized programs to specifically meet the needs of their community.
As Christians, Cityteam is passionate about making disciples who make more disciples through mobilizing, training, and equipping local believers here in the United States and in over 50 international countries. We provide customized training for individuals and churches to become effective disciple-makers.
In 1994, Cityteam began ministering and partnering with international leaders. Through Cityteam, God is raising up thousands of new churches and more than a million new believers in 51 countries across the world.
