The Global Mission Urban Center exists to inspire and equip Seventh-day Adventists to serve the community and to become a blessing to the urban areas.
Jesus loves cities because He loves people and cities are where most people live. The Gospels describe Jesus’ relentless passion to reach people living in the cities of His day. “Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborersare few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” (Matthew 9:35-38, NKJV)
We hope you will be inspired to serve and contribute in their communities.
Our goal is to help you understand the challenges of urban settings, to identify opportunities to build bridges of understanding, to learn effective methods and models based on Christ’s example of wholistic ministry to bring healing to the cities.
We hope you will find useful resources on this website. If you have any comments or question, feel free to contact us, we will be glad to hear from you.
