Churches of God General Confrence

We are affiliated with the Churches of God, General Conference, an evangelical denomination that has its roots in the revivalism and social reform efforts of the second Great Awakening. While Urban Light does not split hairs on peripheral doctrinal issues, we are proud that the CGGC historically has been Arminian and was founded as a pacifist and abolitionist group. We are also thankful that many CGGC churches are in the non-Western world.

By providing not only meaningful and rewarding employment, but a meaningful community and atmosphere to folks within these neighborhoods especially, the goal has been to affect real change within Muncie's community.
