Urban Ministry [NO-019]
More than eighty-two percent of the U.S. population lives in urban areas. Most of the churches and ministres of the Urban Ministries Network are located in areas where proverty rates reach 25 and 30 percent. The Uban Ministries Network has found that internships are a great way for potential workers to "try out" urban ministry in all of its challenges and opportunities. Receipts from a previous special offering are funding an urban ministries intern in New Orleans, LA this year. Your support for this opportunity will help attract and fund the training of the next generation of urban leaders in the EPC. Our 2013 goal is $15,000.
