USA (MNN) – Urban areas are a ready
mission field, which is why there are so many ministry teams trekking around
the globe to bring the Gospel to those who populate these centers.
Poverty is one key characteristic of
inner cities, regardless of location. With the poverty comes crime and overwhelming need.
That's what forms City Team's mission. Their ministry works to help change the lives
of the destitute and homeless, introducing the real hope of Christ and touching
one life at a time.
That vision brings with it a unique
challenge. Once people respond to
Christ, what then? Discipleship is key to cultivating a rooted faith, but not
all urban centers have churches ready to respond.
That's why City Team Ministries' San
Jose branch is holding a special conference for area pastors next Thursday.
Specifically, they're targeting church leaders who want to get involved with
the Church Planting Movement and how that relates to evangelism both
domestically and abroad.
Because churches are springing up in
places traditionally resistant to the Gospel, many church leaders are asking
how they can bring that explosive growth to the U.S. Click here for details.
