City Reach


Would you like to invest your life in one of Tennessee’s greatest cities?

City Reach Nashville is a missions immersion that will awaken you to the movement of God in the great city of Nashville. Come walk alongside others from Tennessee and do life in the ways of Jesus in a variety of church and cultural settings. 


Participants will spend their time learning and engaging on mission while strengthening the foundation of the gospel and city missional practices.

City Reach Nashville will enable churches from across the state to join in the work of God by coming alongside church plants, ethnic churches and churches going through revitalization.
