CHURCH PLANTING IN AN URBAN CONTEXT

God's plan for us to reach beyond the spheres of conventional church

There are people in Portland, who for whatever reason, would never consider coming to my church — as great as it is. The Urban Missions Initiative (UMI) provides a new way to reach a gospel resistant culture calling for neighborhood-centric churches to be established throughout Portland— wherever people gather to do life: in traditional neighborhoods, in businesses, and high rise apartment buildings—what are referred to as vertical neighborhoods. A UMI faith gathering (technically, a church) requires only a space—a living room, community center, board room—not a piece of property, a building, or a large church planting budget, all of which are the primary constraints that end up killing many church plants of the traditional model.
