City Uprising 2011: March 14-March 17

City Uprising is happening in less than two weeks.

What is City Uprising?

Inspired by Jeremiah 33:9, City Uprising seeks to propel the church and prosper the city. Through an intensive worship service and service experience, City Uprising hopes to unite God's people in metropolitan communities to bring about resolute commitment to the local church, raise awareness of the need to reach the world's major cities with the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by building new churches and building a bridge into the heart of the city through love and service.

We believe the city is the launching pad for the gospel. City Uprising is a mobilization piece of SendNYC, a church planting vehicle, equipping and connecting sending churches with church planters. For the first time in history, more people live in urban cities than in rural. If this growth continues, 60% of the American population will live in major cities by 2040. We believe the Church should take notice and move with the trend, bringing people to the city to show the glory of God. City Uprising is a tangible way to show communities service and meet the most immediate needs in restoration, healthcare, and spirituality.

City Uprising was birthed out of the Gallery Church in New York City and has expanded to other mega cities, both nationally and internationally. If you are interested in hosting your own City Uprising event, please see the "Your City" page.

Occurring in several cities, City Uprising has its roots in New York City:::
The home of 170+ languages, 8.5 million people, and the birthplace of City Uprising, New York City Uprising is the ultimate mission experience. With worship and teaching designed to compliment service projects. Past participants have been a part of record breaking HIV testings and working with government agencies to restore community spaces. Those registered can look forward to working with local New Yorkers, creating art, and engaging in life changing conversations during the day.
