The Urban Mission Center celebrated its official launch last week! We enjoyed an open house reception at DHQ, where we were able to answer questions and share our excitement about this new endeavor.
So what exactly is the Urban Mission Center? Bottom line, our center exists to prepare missional leaders for the Urban Millennium. That mission gets us funny looks on occasion! When we say missional leaders, we're speaking about leaders who guide others in discovering and doing their part in God's mission.
But why for the Urban Millennium? As of 2007, more than half of all people live in towns and cities for the first time in history. As urban populations continue to grow, the demand for qualified urban leaders continues to grow.
Our mission feels giant most days. God keeps reminding us that Kingdom work is tough, but He will supply all our needs. Pray for us!
