Congregational Resource Guide
Finding the right resources for your congregation
The Inner City Ministry of Campus Crusade partners with inner-city churches who want to minister to the whole person: body, mind, and spirit. Their goal is to grow and develop new disciples, but they recognize that the physical and material needs of inner-city dwellers create additional barriers to evangelization. Campus Crusade’s Inner City Ministry model is tailored to the particular needs of those living in urban poverty. The model, “Circle of Hope - Connecting, Empowering, and Developing,” offers partner churches resources, training, and on-going support to enable them to minister effectively to their neighborhoods. Their website describes the specific steps of the process and provides brief testimonial videos. One feature of their ministry model is a set of adult development programs with tested and researched curriculum and strategies for recruitment. These programs are aimed at ministry areas such as prisoner ministry, career development, and building financial skills. The website offers information about urban summer internships and volunteer opportunities.
