Merry Christmas from City Church Network!
Dear Friends and Family,
Seeing one person come to Christ is cause for celebration. Seeing three generations baptized into Christ is historic. And that’s exactly what happened the last Sunday in August at Mill Creek. Three generations of a family from Nepal committed their lives to Jesus. Dahl and his wife Chali, nine adult children, and several grandchildren all gathered that day at the river to be baptized as the angels rejoiced. This is what our network is all about – life change!
It is with great joy that I send you this letter for the work that God has given us at City Church Network.
Our church, City Church Woodbine, has expanded its vision to be called City Church Network. Our vision is to see a movement of healthy disciples and churches. We now have over 200 people worshiping Jesus in Nashville from 17 nations in 25 Bible studies. Bible studies where disciples are being taught the Scriptures in their heart language. This year, by God’s grace, we were able to see 156 people come to repentant faith in Jesus, and 46 of those were baptized, from over 12 nations!
We continue to develop resources for the global church. Our blog has been visited by individuals in over 137 countries with over 13,100 views since the first of the year. We are also targeting four strategic cities in the United States and hope to develop a City Church app that can be used on phones all over the world with our training materials.
I can honestly say this year has been one of the most fulfilling and fruitful years of ministry for the Kaufmann family and City Church Network. As God has been doing great things in our ministry, He has also done great things in our family. During the last 12 months, we were able to go with William and Gracie to east Asia and Costa Rica to train our children in loving and reaching the nations for His glory. We were able to host a son from Thailand named Chris Patakasak. He is graduating this year from Lighthouse Christian School with a vision to go back to his country to spread the gospel.
Friends, would you take a moment to thank God in prayer for what he has done for the Kaufmann family and for City Church Network? Then, would you prayerfully consider making a generous gift to our ministry?
Your Christmas at-year-end offering will go to:
- Fund 20 pioneer missionaries here in Nashville
- Send missionaries to the unreached from our church to the world
- Develop training resources for the global church
Thank you for your partnership in the advancement of the gospel in Nashville among the 1.2 million people that live in our city that do not worship Jesus Christ.

Will you join my wife Rebekah and me as we pray and as we give? My prayer is that God will provide $100,000 in gifts through this 2013 offering. Gifts that will tangibly help us reach about 10,000 lost people with the gospel next year!
For HIS fame,
