Loving the San Francisco Bay Area... Community development, urban ministry, trying to defeat poverty, faith, religion, politics, good music, the quest for the perfect pizza, the Yankees, motorcycles... All in a 'day's life'

Theme - The Urban Ministry of Jesus Mt: 9:35-38

Mission:
- Teaching

If we are to follow Jesus model our urban ministry activites must come in one of these three activites.

Method:
- Observation.
- Jesus saw the crowd. Sometimes we plan our ministries without seeing the people.
- Compassion
- Compassion focus our observation
- Reflection
- Critical thinking.
- Intercession
- How can we do any ministry without prayer. Jesus: YOU play to the Lord of the Harvest to send out workers into His field
- Commission

If you really wanted to see Jesus in DC, where would you go?

The Ministry of Reconciliation - 2 Cor. 5:16-21

- We are seekign the manifistaion of the power of the word of God in our city.

The church is called not to only care for the people who walk through the door, but the city in general - or we will render ourself irrelevant
