We began with 30 people in 1986, founded and led by Doctors Gary and Janis Smith. Under their vision and leadership, what started in a small building with a handful of people expanded over the course of twenty-five years into a multicultural, vibrant, multi-thousand member church.
In the midst of a period of explosive growth and spiritual revival in 2009, Drs. Gary & Janis were led by God to transition the senior leadership of the church to their son and daughter-in-law, Jeffrey and Amy Smith. Pastors Jeffrey & Amy are leading City of Life into its fourth decade with a passion for building the church, reaching the lost, and making the hope of Jesus known.
Today, thousands of people throughout Central Florida and across the world call City of Life Church home, whether they attend at one of our physical locations or through our online services. We invite you to become a part of the story of City of Life as it is still being written!
