·      Our vision is to support and facilitate city transformation, holistically for God’s glory by bringing leaders together across the business, church, civic and para-church arenas.

·      City Vision believes that while churches can address church sized challenges, it takes unity within the wider body to address city sized challenges.

·      City Vision serves to provide processes and resources for Christian leaders in business, church, para-church and government organisations, who wish to see God’s Kingdom impact their city.

·      City Vision serves leaders of peace in ways designed to foster unity, discover God's vision and respond accordingly.
