The 21st century will go down in history as the century of global urbanization. How does God feel about the city, and how should we respond to what is being considered one of the four major challenges of our time? In this fresh approach to urban missions, Brad Stanley shares his experience and God-given insight into the value of the city and its inhabitants, and the role that the church should play in reaching cities worldwide for Christ.
Brad Stanley is the director of Youth With A Mission, Chicago. He has served as a full-time missionary for the last 25 years, which has taken him to more than 20 nations. He has worked to develop and train city ministry in Chicago, with a special emphasis on cross-cultural ministry among urban immigrant and subculture neighborhoods. He facilitates hundreds of volunteers each year in urban and international outreach endeavors, and speaks regularly in churches and mission training schools in the United States and abroad.
"When we pray for nations, we should not be surprised the nations come to us. If we cant or wont go to them, God brings them to our doorstep so the Great Commission can be fulfilled and the heart of God made known to a paralyzed church and a lost people."
Floyd McClung, All Nations, Cape Town, South Africa
