Right now, more than half of the world’s population lives in a city. The United Nations predicts that in thirty years more than two thirds of the population will live in the city. This simple statistic about where people are headed should be a wake up call for the church!
Over the last several years, many pastors and churches have heeded the call to join in God’s work in cities by planting new churches and investing in urban ministries. Though global statistics are a great source of understanding and motivation, our truest conviction to invest in the urban centers of the world must not rest in statistics alone but in our vision from God.
