In particular, they seek to offer a vision for urban mission and ministry that takes shape around the ways of Jesus.
Whether you already work in an urban context, are interested in “cities” as a pervasive biblical motif, or recognize the massive trends toward urbanization throughout the world, this workshop may serve as a valuable resource.
Microcosms of the world, urban centers bring the worlds greatest points of brokenness as well as its greatest points of beauty front and center. Cities play a major role throughout Scripture and our great expectation is in the renewal of all things in the City of God. But city-based ministry that is faithful and fruitful in the way of Jesus can be a complicated and daunting calling. This workshop will explore the nature and shape of ministry in urban contexts from biblical, personal, and pastoral perspectives.
