Learn about how City of Light started.

City of Light Church was birthed from a heart’s response to a city in need by Pastor Brian and Joelynett Mckee. It is no secret that the Greater Milwaukee Area has some real challenges to overcome. Over the last several years homelessness, moral decay, family instability and racial tensions have increased.

Growing up in the area, Pastor Brian and Joelynett Mckee know the needs of Greater Milwaukee first-hand. From rising out of poverty and family instability, to leaving for college and coming back to serve as city outreach leaders and youth pastors, they have witnessed God take seemingly insignificant people and make a huge difference.

As teens, Pastor Brian and Joelynett sang in youth choirs together, led youth ministry teams and participated in community outreaches. They have seen God move to change lives across cultural boundaries, whether through college outreach ministry with Campus Crusade for Christ or through city-wide prayer walks and community outreach festivals.

City of Light Church is a place where people from all walks of life come together to know God. We believe that every person on earth is here for a reason. By connecting with God, you can find out why you are here and how you can make a positive difference in our global community.

Pastor Brian and Joelynett have served in youth, adult and college ministry for close to 20 years each and have a passionate desire to help lead people into a thriving relationship with Jesus Christ.
