City Church is affiliated with the Acts 29 Network of churches planting churches. We have deep conviction that the local church is God’s primary way of reaching and discipling His people.  As a result, we see church planting as God’s primary vessel to reach and disciple new people in virtually every context.  Currently, City Church is supporting a number of church plants locally and internationally.  In addition to monetary support, we are committed to equipping future church planters and look forward to hiring with the intention to send out Church Planter Residents. Watch Acts 29 2016/17 vision below. 

MEET OUR PLANTERS

City church is honored to partner with Grace Chapel Church In Durban South Africa in Training a church planting resident Bruce Chimani. As he works under the leadership of Sihle Xulu we are paying for his fees with the Act 29 Academy.

Bruce was born in Mutare, Zimbabwe, and grew up about 800 km away in the city of Bulawayo. He got saved when he was 16 years old, and within the first year of being saved became active in preaching in high schools and within his community. Having known Bulawayo as home, Bruce has felt a grave need for healthy churches to be planted in the city he loves so much which is largely dominated by prosperity gospel, and deliverance ministry churches -- which continue to lead many astray. He is currently enrolled in the Acts 29 Southern Africa Academy. Currently, he leads the young adults and student work at Grace Chapel Durban. Bruce and his wife, Brittany (who is a Texas native), have been married since December 2017. Bruce enjoys writing and reading, and wrote for a local newspaper for a couple of years. He enjoys following world politics and watching boxing too. 

PLEASE PRAY FOR:

  1. Students to come to faith as the gospel of Jesus Christ is preached in Durban through our feeble efforts.

  2. Indigenous leaders to be raised in this context who will take over the work we have started, we are here only on a short term basis.

  3. Sihle, the Lead pastor at Grace Chapel, that grace may be given him to lead and sherperd the flock of God to maturity.

  4. Open doors for us to build meaningful gospel relationships.

  5. That our home becomes a place where we can invite students and others and offer them friendship, love and point them to Jesus Christ.

  6. Financial partners and provision for our work here.
