Join the Team – Finance Director

Blog

THE STORY SO FAR

City on a Hill began with a small team and a big vision to make a difference in our world for the glory of God.

Since our inception in Melbourne in 2007, we have witnessed a special work of God's grace as he has united hundreds of men and women around the mission of 'knowing Jesus and making Jesus known'. In the past twelve months we have baptised scores of people and witnessed many give their life to Jesus for the first time. This year we also planted our first interstate church, City on a Hill Brisbane. Today, City on a Hill meets across four locations in three cities.

While our story is characterised by constant change and growth, we have maintained an enduring commitment to Christ and his call on our lives in this generation. We are committed to raising up gospel hearted leaders, to build healthy churches, which will reach and serve cities with the gospel of Jesus.
