 Challenges Faced

The local church need to reach youth living in at-risk communities is and can be a complex task. One of the issues that makes connecting with youth more difficult is the perception of the Church in the eyes of the urban community. The concept of the church in the mind of youth living in at-risk communities is non-relational. Inner city youth feel that the church is only concerned about those in church and not the community at large. They feel that churches do not relate to them, both the structure of their services and in their outreach efforts.

Therefore, the need to establish a church that is relational, people and community focused or cultivate worship experiences that are culturally sensitive and biblically accurate is imperative. Our desire is to build a church where we can accomplish both of these goals.
