The San Francisco City Team exists to help local churches develop local missions

EFCA West and EFCA Western districts asked ReachGlobal to partner together to strengthen church planting in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The cities of San Francisco, Berkeley and Oakland comprise about 1.5 million people. Many churches are engaged in missional efforts with effective pastoral leadership, but the need is significant.

The goal of the San Francisco City Team is to increase gospel ministries and disciplemaking directly tied to the local church in four strategic areas.


Multiply evangelists in the local church through training, mentoring and supporting them in public spaces

Pre-church Planting

Place current-day missionaries in neighborhoods for outreach before a church plant

Contextual Research

Study local contextual matters affecting gospel understanding and identify opportunities for gospel ministries

Public Discipleship

Assist the local church in equipping disciples to face post-Christian challenges to express the gospel

Our hope is to see the church flourish in the Bay Area through a spirit of collaboration and establishing the Church where the gospel isn’t known.

"Often church planters like me enter a city seeking to reap before sowing seeds and looking for growth before watering. ReachGlobal San Francisco is positioned to mobilize prayer warriors to prepare the soil for a church plant in the hard soil of the Bay Area. With wisdom gained from what they have seen God do overseas, they have the experience and heart to reach the unreached in the Bay Area."

Matt Moore, EFCA Western District Superintendent
