Summer Christian Education Classes
July 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Teacher: Dr. Kyuboem Lee Title: Introduction to Urban Mission Date: Saturday, 7/16/22 Time: 9 am to Noon Location: West Philly, 2nd floor Annex Description: During the 20th century, the percentage of world population living in cities increased from 13% to a little less than 50%. Unfortunately, the church has been slow to respond to the emerging urban world, retaining its rural presuppositions and even responding with an antiurban bias. Churches in cities, like Renewal, must better understand the city and love the city if they are to be faithful to the mission of God in urban spaces like Philadelphia. This introductory course will seek to provide a basic theology of the city, examine current urban issues and the church’s role, and explore contextually appropriate urban missional strategies.
