West Denver City Life

City Life


Charles Straughter

Our vision for this City Life is to impact the West Denver community with the love of Christ. We believe in being a support system for the youth in our city. All while teaching them from our Holistic Ministry Models: Spiritual and Moral Literacy, Education, Social and Civic Literacy, Basic Health, and Economic Literacy.


We provide a safe place to come and be yourself in hopes of changing the narrative for our youth to feel included, heard and seen while having trusted people to be in their corner to help navigate life. During the school year, we meet once a week for small group and our Pray 'N' Play, where we pick different activities to engage in. During the summer months, we meet 2x a month for fun activities around the city.

Ways to Get Involved:

  • Ministry Volunteer/Group Leader
    We want to take these kids off the street, mirror the heart of Jesus and reach into their life. This can be done by bringing kids together and showing them where Christ can be found.
  • Small Group Speakers
    Speakers take their own experience from living in similar areas of the city as these kids and are an example of the difference that Christ made in their life. This helps kids see that change is possible and the potential aftereffects of what a life like that looks like.
  • Financial Support
    We would be so grateful for helping us carry out the regular activities and fun events for these kids. This truly would help change the story of their lives in giving us opportunity to reach into their lives in many different ways.
