Planning a visit to CITY LIGHTS CHURCH? We’re expecting you! We’ve designed this page as a resource to help answer the most common questions you may have before your visit. We’re looking forward to meeting you – you’re already family!


Erin + Jacob Gaines

As of May, Richmond has become our permanent home! We are often asked what would cause us to pack up our lives and move from the comfort of our home in Virginia Beach to Richmond, VA. That’s easy: A strong belief that God is up to big things in Richmond, and a deep desire to be a part of what’s happening here. We both sensed an undeniable call from God to plant a life-giving church in the West End of Richmond, VA with the hope of eventually being a church for the entire city of Richmond and beyond. We envision a vibrant church in which wandering people find Jesus, searching people discover purpose, lonely people become family, and each of us embrace a full life through Jesus!

Erin and Jacob would love to meet you before you even come to a City Lights Church service. Feel free to setup a time for coffee!
