The empowered urban poor advancing God’s Kingdom
in every city through the local church.
Through healthy urban churches, the Holy Spirit will provide transformative power to communities through each of these four focus areas, which work together as an electrical grid. Each source is imperative for the current to travel. A fried transformer, bad outlet, short in a cable, or burnt out light might leave many unreached by the light of Christ, but when all are properly maintained, lives will be transformed and more power sources will be built by the power of the Holy Spirit.
World Impact is committed to three missional priorities —Evangelism, Equipping and Empowerment.
The missional priorities inform our four focus areas:
Planting healthy urban churches
Developing missional partnerships
Resourcing urban leader
Demonstrating compassion and justice
Plant Healthy Urban Churches
The Church is the transformative power of Christ in the community. By planting healthy urban churches, neighborhoods will be empowered to transform in visible ways. World Impact strives to plant as many churches as possible among diverse urban cultures.
Develop Missional Partnership
The outlet for community transformation already exists in indigenous leaders. World Impact seeks to form Kingdom-minded relationships that collaboratively love, serve, and engage under-resourced communities.
Resource Urban Leaders
Local leaders can get plugged in and energized through resources developed for the urban context. World Impact equips indigenous leaders to shepherd the people of God within their own communities through TUMI, Conferences, the Associates Initiatives and others.
Demonstrate Compassion & Justice
The tangible demonstration of compassion and justice is the light the community sees coming from the Church. World Impact mobilizes local churches to be outposts of the Kingdom of God through thrift stores, medical assistance, schools and more.
