Today’s school campus is a battleground. Yet the church is often disengaged. Come explore how urban ministry can transform public education within a single generation by activating congregations, adopting schools, and becoming an answer to prayer.

Is it possible to attract gang members and other un-churched students from failing, low-income, violence filled schools, and blend them with students who’ve grown up in the church? Come hear Chuck share why you should, and how you can.
