Strategic Urban Renewal

Being Light in the Darkness

 

The Call: God Speaking

Partner with us in God’s call to serve the poor, the widow, the orphan, and the homeless in one of the most under-reached regions of the country. In May 2012, God first told us that we would soon move our family to Tacoma, Washington to minister to those whom He loved who were in need. Click here to read the full story 

The Need: (sources: Barna, City-Data)

  • Percent of residents who identify as “no faith” is double the national average
  • More than 20% of adults in the area consider themselves as “skeptics”
  • Poor city reputation: poverty, unemployment, homelessness, gang problems, aging real estate, drug addiction have all given the city a bad reputation
  • Greater than 43% of residents have absolutely no church experience

 

The Answer: Jesus and His Kingdom

Phase 1:  6 Month Laser-Focused Intercession (prayer walks/drives, mtg. people)

  • Intentional living: purchase & live in an urban multiplex
  • Homeless outreach: food, shelter, skill training, job placement, home acquisition assistance
  • Orphan/widow/poor services and care
  • Discipleship
  • Network and partner with churches, nonprofits, and government agencies working with the poor

Phase 2:  Renewal of People and Spaces

  • Bible dispersal and teaching the Word of God: (includes production of dramatized digital Bible to serve the urban illiterate)
  • Real estate: restoration, improvement, and renewal
  • Urban clean-up, environment renewal and transformation 

Phase 3:  Big Picture Urban Renewal

  • Planting Life Groups and communities of faith
  • Renewal of institutions, politics, infrastructure, urban design
  • Gang: prevention, infiltration and intervention, redirection
