New to all this?    Here are some concise overviews and how you can get involved quickly...

 

 

Right now you're inside a growing wiki-knowledgebase of info, generally arranged city-by-city (see RH sidebar), with a goal of helping expedite the Great Commission.  We call it the 'CityReaching' wiki... and its front-page is easily accessible via the web name 'CityReaching.org'.  Our very freshest of communications is via our Twitter feed @CityReaching.  And you can see the large number of other Twitter feeds that we interact with.  CityReaching is a movement, not an organization.  We're all in this together.

  • What is the 'CityReaching' movement?  It's "the whole church taking the whole gospel to the whole city".  It is a grass-roots movement.  The front-page of the wiki answers to the name CityReaching.org.  The largest 'organization' involved with the movement is Table Coalition (fka Mission America Coalition, fka Lausanne Cmtte, U.S.A.)... notably their CityReaching.com division.  Its leaders are active in helping you connect & communicate in cities throughout the country.... through (free) monthly teleconference-calls, and/or regional city-impact roundtables.  The significant (pre-pandemic) initiative is called 'Love2020'... that every person in America should have the opportunity of being authentically loved by at least one committed follower of Jesus Christ within this decade. Every person should know that God loves them and cares deeply about them.

 

  • What is CityVOST?  The CityReaching wiki provides more than simply city-by-city info.  We also serve to advance the concept of 'Virtual Operations Support Teams' -- an effort to link to a nationwide collection of (Christian) DIGITAL workers supporting (Christian) city units involved an urgent/important situation.
    • Question:   When does CityVOST get activated?  Answer:  When we're invited and can staff a core team, for a given situation. 
    • Question:   How qualified do I have to be to help?  Answer:  If you're digitally capable of such things as Facebook or Twitter or Google-Docs or even right here in our PBworks set of wiki-pages... then you can put your particular skill to work during an emergency!  (or anytime).
    • Question:   How do I/we get started working with CityVOST?  Answer:  Click here to Get Started with VOST .

 

  • What is the Christian Emergency Network?  The CityReaching wiki also serves to grow a sense of 'readiness' in each and every city.  For that reason, we advocate on behalf of CEN, which strives to train ReadyChristian(s), ReadyChurch(es), and ReadyCity(s).
    • Question:  Ready to do what? 
    • Answer:  Ready to pray, care, and share the Good News of hope and peace through Jesus Christ, with our friends and neighbors.
    • How to get started:  Hit this page at ChristianEmergencyNetwork.org, watch the video and click their 'Make A Commitment' page (see Statement of Faith there).

 

  • What is ReadyIndy?  It's the (real-world) Greater Indianapolis metro chapter of the national Christian Emergency Network.   The goal is to model citywide readiness via collaborative ReadyChurch(es) and by training ReadyChristian(s).
