Christian City Celebrating 47 Years of Ministry On Valentine’s Day

Happy anniversary Christian City! Valentine’s Day marks the 47th anniversary of the day Christian City opened the first cottage to eight little boys who were without a home.

Founders thought that Valentine’s Day, which is a day set aside to celebrate love, would be the perfect time to launch their vision of providing love and a safe, warm home to children without a place to live.

Christian City has come a long way since then, having cared for hundreds of kids over the years, and thousands of seniors as well.

On Valentine’s Day, they will celebrate that they have been “loving people… loving people” for 47 years now.
