ABOUT CITYREACH HOPE HOMES

Discipleship-based Recovery Homes

REBUILDING BROKEN LIVES

With a vision to rebuild broken lives, the Hope Home ministry provides a place of hope and freedom for people dealing with life-controlling issues or desperate situations.

The main concentrations are spiritual discipleship and life disciplines. These include areas such as prayer, Bible study, volunteer work, and services to local churches and organizations.

The Hope Homes are residential recovery homes where men and women are encouraged to reach their full potential in a faith-filled, family-style atmosphere.

RESTORING HOPE

After successful graduation of the 9-month residential program, graduates have the option to live in supportive housing while pursuing employment or education as they prepare for an independent and restored life.

BRINGING PEOPLE BACK TO THE DESTINY AND PURPOSE GOD HAS INTENDED FOR THEIR LIVES

LEADERSHIP

Brian Bolt, Founder and President of CityReach Network
BRIAN BOLT

Founder & President

The story of CityReach began when Brian Bolt survived a gunshot wound to head and gave his life to Jesus in the back of an ambulance. After a radical transformation, he discovered his calling to become a pastor and church planter and attended Bible College in eastern PA.

Pastor Brian started the first CityReach Hope Home and CityReach church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The mission was simple – love people and reach the lost. As the church grew, God placed a vision for multiplication on Brian’s heart and within four years, CityReach planted two more churches. The pattern that emerged quickly gained momentum.

In 2010, Brian founded CITYREACH NETWORK, a church planting organization that exists to plant and develop life-giving churches in strategic cities. Pastor Brian and his wife Natalie continue to lead their church and cast vision for CITYREACH NETWORK.

Bobby Bledsoe and family
BOBBY BLEDSOE

National Hope Home Director

After stints in rehab, 19 months in juvenile detention, countless trips to the county jail, running the streets, and two weeks in a homeless shelter, Bobby Bledsoe’s out-of-control lifestyle finally came to an end.

Jesus came to Bobby in a vision and said, “With me there will be no fear.” Bobby went to church shortly after and had an encounter with the love of God. He was finally free!

Bobby and his wife Jade met while attending Faith School of Theology where they both experienced a call of God to full-time ministry. Pastor Bobby planted multiple churches and started multiple Hope Homes in the Northern New England region.

With a vision to see new Hope Homes open all over the country, Pastor Bobby travels and casts vision for the Hope Home ministry. He is passionate about seeing men and women experience the life-changing power and freedom of Jesus Christ.

OUR STORY

The story of CityReach began when Brian Bolt survived a gun shot wound to the head and gave his life to Jesus in the back of an ambulance. After a radical transformation, he discovered his calling to become a pastor and church planter.

Pastor Brian then started the first CityReach Hope Home and CityReach Church. The mission was simple – love people and reach the lost. The church took off and grew quickly. That’s when God placed a vision for multiplication on Brian’s heart. Within four years, CityReach planted two more churches. The pattern that emerged quickly gained momentum.

Brian Bolt was led to start CITYREACH NETWORK to fulfill that vision. We remain dedicated to REACH THE ONE by planting churches and opening Hope Homes.
