Jesus in Global Cities

Global cities are significant for the future of the human race and vital for world mission. There we find the next generation of young people, culture shapers and the poorest of the poor.  Migrants flee to cities for refuge; many from places where it is difficult to follow Christ.  

Global cities connect us beyond political borders. They are gateways for ideas, for business, for cultural influences. They are not simply places to live. They shape ethics, justice, and conversations beyond national borders. The pandemic has reminded us quite painfully how interconnected our world is today.  

Throughout Scripture, cities play a significant role, from the first city (Genesis 4:17) to the last (Revelation 21:2). And cities were integral to the Apostle Paul’s global mission. Consider Antioch (Acts 13:1-3), Rome, Corinth, Ephesus and many others.  

We’re inviting you to participate in our upcoming Global Missions Conference focused on “Jesus in Global Cities.”  Join us in learning what Jesus is doing today in global cities! Come hear how our missionaries are serving in global cities! Consider what role you could have in Jesus’ mission in global cities!
