Urban Missions in the Midst of Social Restrictions

By Tyler Tom on 27 Mar 2020

URBAN MISSIONS IN THE MIDST OF Social RESTRICTIONS

How is it even possible to be missional in spite of the restrictions we are facing? Though the physical reach of our activity is blocked, and for good reason, our passion to share the love of Jesus with the nations hasn't diminished at all. 

Our urban centers around the country have been seeking creative expressions of how to minister. We are so encouraged by their stories and are praying for more!
