develop missional partnerships
There are some things that just go well together: peanut butter and jelly, mac and cheese, spray paint and empty walls, and World Impact and the Urban Youth Workers Institute.
As each of the World Impact regions expand their reach into new cities, neighborhoods and churches, we like to see common threads. One of those threads is the implementation of The Urban Church Association (UCA).
In the early days of World Impact, breaking in to new communities meant parachuting a missionary team into a neighborhood or city to cultivate ministry from the ground up.
This year we have experienced the challenges of living in the land of the divided. Political, racial, and class divisions have caused deep grieving in many hearts.
It is senseless to ignore cultural differences. Though we've been baptized into one body, God has created us uniquely different. It’s amazing!
