“Why I Love Monday Nights”

Katie Campbell  has been involved with City Life since she was 15 years old. As an adult she serves the young people by leading City Life Club and mentoring.

"Every Monday I show up to spend time with high school students, to share life with them, to challenge them, to listen to them, to guide them, to love them, to laugh with them, sometimes to cry with them, and to share Jesus with them.

"In the past 10 years hundreds of high schoolers have walked through City Life, shared a meal, heard the truth, had some fun and felt some love. Many, many students (even some that are not around anymore) take a piece of my heart. And sometimes, it’s hard to keep choosing to love and give and be all in. But I have been so extremely blessed by God, first and foremost, and by City Life that I have, out of gratitude, chosen a lifestyle of giving back and showing Christ’s love to people.

"It might not always be in this way, but I am so thankful for the Mondays I get to spend with students. Especially when I get to watch them say 'Yes' to Jesus and witness their lives changing right before my eyes."
