Half the world now lives in cities. And the gospel has the power to bring unprecedented renewal. God’s Spirit is already on the move spreading Christ’s glory in major urban centers.
What will be next for our generation?
On April 14th, 2011 over 2500 participants joined urban movement leaders Tim Keller, Eric Mason, Al Barth, Jeff Vanderstelt, Makoto Fujimura, Lecrae and others for a unique half-day catalytic conference calling us to the renewal of our cities, for the glory of Christ in the cities of the world.
Comments & quotes from Christ+City 2011: A Call to Renewal.
