Our Story

About City Impact

City Impact began with a weekly Bible club in the park and has grown into a fruitful epicenter for change, with programs and people who help transform youth and their families from the inside out. We offer faith-based and academic-focused programs for K-12th grad students.

The ripple of empowerment began over 25 years ago! In 1993, Brad and Carma took a step of faith, spending time with kids who needed love and hope. Check out this video that chronicles the early years of City Impact as the Bryans’ said yes to God’s calling of holistic Gospel ministry.
