CFTROU 0073: Partnering with Inner-City Ministries

Today we continue a series of conversation about churches can partner with community organizations to help our people be the church out there. Joining us today are Chris Tress and Proverb Newsome with Urban Youth Impact and Bow Down Church in West Palm Beach, FL. They are helping the most under resourced people in West Palm Beach and investing their lives to make a difference. They share what they are doing to raise up leaders and be Jesus to people who live in the inner-city. You will also learn what you can do to help those who need it most.

Key Points:

  • Mission and vision of Urban Youth Impact (UYI).
  • Getting children to church and raising up leaders through Project 516.
  • Being faithful when serving people who have experience a lot of brokenness.
  • Powerful testimonies of lives changed through UYI.
  • The importance of mentoring and being faithful.
  • How churches can get involved.
  • Connecting with organizations that are already helping struggling communities.
