My name’s Anya and I’m a 2nd-year Christ in the City missionary from Lancaster, PA.

What brought me to Christ in the City

It all started with fruit snacks. I was attending a Catholic conference for college students (SEEK 2019), and noticed everyone who walked by the Christ in the City booth was getting pelted with fruit snacks. I walked over to the booth to see what kind of strange organization this was and submitted my missionary application by the end of the week.

What I’m looking forward to

As a second year missionary, I look forward to deepening friendships with friends on the street, and forming new friendships within our community. I’m also excited to discover more about who I am and how I fit into the world.


everyone deserves
to be known & loved

If you join me in the mission as a monthly supporter, you will also become part of Known & Loved, Christ in the City’s monthly giving community! We are so grateful for our monthly supporters and their consistent generosity which makes it possible for us missionaries to be formed and reach out the homeless all year-long.
