The CITY LIFE ministry is currently serving youth in the Masten Park neighborhood on the east side of Buffalo, New York. A volunteer team of Christ-centered adults from inside and outside the neighborhood is changing the lives of neighborhood youth through mentoring and Christ-sharing relationships.

CITY LIFE volunteer mentors engage students each week through an outreach gathering called Club, small group studies, and individual mentoring. In addition, special events are held on a regular basis to engage additional youth and build new mentoring and Christ-sharing relationships.

Volunteer training is provided on an ongoing basis to prepare and equip Christ-centered adults to effectively engage youth and make a real positive difference in their lives. Please contact Maddie Chesbrough for volunteer information or complete the form on the Volunteer Page.
