The Ministry in the City HUB is a national initiative that supports the flourishing of pastors, congregations, faith-based organizations, and theological education focused on cities. We are cultivating a learning network, collecting and sharing resources, and building capacity through invitational grants.

Our mission is to gather and connect generations of leaders concerned with the future of Christian faith in our cities by sharing resources, ideas, and practices for life-giving ministry across North America.
