It is deeply rooted in our subconscious that life should have an upward mobility to it. We pursue better jobs, better homes and better neighborhoods as a marker of success.

But is this the way of Jesus? Urban communities are crumbling partly because Christians are not fully engaging them with their lives.

In this workshop, we will exam the real and legitimate fears, dangers, challenges, highs, lows, joys and concerns of living in the inner city. You will hear first hand how my wife processes raising our family in the hood. We will consider these realities in light of God’s word. My wife and I can testify, “Jesus is worth it, and our communities desperately need to see Christians up close and in person.”

This was the first of four workshops presented at Legacy Conference 2016 for the Urban Missionary Track.

Registration has begun for the 11th annual Legacy Conference in Chicago, Illinois from July 20-22, 2017. Ministers will include KB, Jackie Hill Perry, Dhati Lewis and Charlie Dates. Register here.
