Journal of Urban Mission: Seeking the Mission of God in Cities throughout the World
Volume 7, Issue 2:
Gun Violence and the Urban Church
Why should contexts of urban poverty so often be perceived as alien territory for the people of God, and hard places for the gospel? Through his experience in Kibera, a slum community in Nairobi, and through his reflection on the eschatological vision of Isaiah, the author discerns the Spirit of God at work in the burgeoning urban areas of poverty where many outsiders see little hope, and outlines a theological vision for the church’s missionary agenda there.
The missional motivation for Missio is summarized by their phrase “following Jesus into the world.”
Missio Seminary believes that God is at work building his church around the world from rural country towns, to bustling urban cities, to poverty-stricken nations, and everywhere in between.
When you study at Missio Seminary you are more than just a student, your story becomes their story – and you join God’s great story of redeeming the world to himself in Christ.
