The band started in 2005 when they wanted to pursue a Wednesday morning worship ministry at their local high school. Word soon spread and in the following years the ministry grew to nine public schools in the Portland area, with thousands of students attending. After they graduated high schol  they signed to Centricity Music in the fall of 2008. Shortly after Sixteen Cities started work on their debut Centricity Music album.

In January 2010 Sixteen Cities released an EP called Come As You Are EP through Centricity Music. Sixteen Cities then released their self-titled debut album, Sixteen Cities in April 2010. Later that year they released the Your Love Is EP.  You can sample their music on the Apple iTunes Store
