CityBeat aims to change the heartbeat of Baltimore by loving, restoring, and empowering people through a dream center, a leadership college, and a church.
It all started as a dream. Pastor Jared Michael was sitting in his office one afternoon, and happened to find a sermon online by Pastor Matthew Barnett, the founder of the Los Angeles Dream Center. Inspired by Pastor Matthew's heart to "find a hurt and heal it, find a need and fill it," Pastor Jared began to imagine a similar organization right here in Baltimore - a beacon of light that would help bring hope to communities.
Founded in February 2015, CityBeat has evolved into a thriving organization that has developed a wide array of outreach programs. We are excited to be kicking off our first residential program for women in the coming months. We are also excited to launch CityBeat Church in 2018 and begin development on CityBeat Leadership College in the near future. God has been doing an amazing work so far, and we cannot wait for the years to come as we see God's Kingdom built right here in Baltimore.
