Projects that Impact

The Impact Conference kicks off a year-long cycle where we support projects locally, regionally and globally. Commit to giving financially, to pray, or join a serve team working on the projects!

What are my Impact Commitments?

You have the privilege of being personally financially involved in what God is doing through City Hill Church to fulfill Acts 1:8b

and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. - Acts 1:8b

  • Giving finances to the Impact Projects so that others may come to know Jesus

  • Going to share your faith and serve those in need through the Local Projects and Short-Term Mission Trips.

Why are my Impact Commitments important?

We are called to reach out to those who don’t know Jesus. God continues to release vision and strategy for how we can more effectively reach the lost. Your prayerful commitment to give and to go makes these visions a reality.

How do I make an Impact Fund Commitment?

Pray and ask God to speak to you. When He tells you the amount of finances to pledge, you may make a one-time contribution or give monthly contributions over the next 12 months {March - February}. As opportunities to serve those in need and share the Gospel {Local Projects} become available at City Hill, please sign up as God directs you! Application for Short-Term Mission Trips are available by contacting the church office.

Crops for PROP

We’ll grow fresh vegetables in the church garden as part of the “Crops for PROP” program. PROP is a food shelf that also provides many social services for Eden Prairie & Chanhassen. Healthy food options are in high demand at PROP and this is one way we can meet a need in our community. Funds will be used to buy seeds, plants, and supplies. Serving opportunities are available! We also plan to provide store-bought fresh produce twice a month for PROP during the months we are not growing produce in our garden.
