The Christian community is responding to this reality. Churches and para-church ministries are actively working to transform lives and restore communities throughout the city and suburbs, working with the under-resourced in such diverse arenas as creative church planting, the growing Hispanic and Muslim populations, children and teen outreach, racially changing communities, house churches, economic development, and more.

Islam, gentrification, AIDS, and multiculturalism: Where do we face these realities? A few years ago, it was in the city. But today, many city dwellers are moving to the suburbs, either by choice or because of circumstances beyond their control. And this shift is changing both the urban and suburban landscape.
With this shift in mind, editors John Fuder and Noel Castellanos have gathered together a team of experts to help you minister effectively in both the urban and suburban context. Divided into four sections--Critical Issues, Church-Planting Models, Ministering to Suburban Needs, and Para-Church Ministries--A Heart for the Community is a rich resource designed to help you do ministry today.
NOEL CASTELLANOS has worked in full-time ministry in urban communities since 1982. He has served in youth ministry, church planting, and community development in San Francisco, San Jose, and Chicago. Noel is a highly sought after speaker, motivator, and mentor to young leaders throughout the USA, and has a deep passion to serve and invest in the lives of emerging leaders. After serving on the Board of the Christian Community Development Association for many years, he has established the new CCDA Institute, which is working to equip emerging church leaders in the philosophy of Christian Community Development, and currently serves as the CEO of CCDA. He and his wife, Marianne, have three children, and make their home in the barrio of La Villita in Chicago.

FCS Urban Ministries, Atlanta
Drawn from a wide range of practitioners, A Heart for the Community may prove to be the manual and text for the 21st century urban minister. This book is a worthy testament to the exciting work of the Christian Community Development Association and a needed encouragement for those on the front lines of ministry.
