For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10
In recent years, we have narrowed our approach to Urban ministry in Birmingham by focusing over 80% of our resources to the community of Fairfield. We partner with organizations already in the community such as Better Basics, C J Donald Elementary, Grace House, Hope Health Center , and Restoration Academy.
In addition to these partnerships, we are establishing further initiatives that will develop the next generation of urban leaders:
- Urban Hope Church Plant – to serve the entire family
- U-Hope Success Academy – preparing Fairfield students
- Aspire Mentoring Movement – to reach 9 – 18 year olds
- Foundations Early Learning and Family Center – to reach children ages 0-4 years as well as their parent(s) or guardian(s).
- Birmingham Urban Young Life – reaching adolescents
