4/9/2019
More
According to the book of Hebrews, “we do not have a lasting city here; we seek the city that is to come.” And yet, between now and the time when God reveals that lasting city that is to come, we are called to proclaim the gospel in every place, and that includes urban contexts. Today, Dr. Lilly Park talks with Dr. Timothy Paul Jones, director of the Dehoney Center for Urban Ministry Training, about why an urban ministry podcast is needed and why urban ministry matters.

GUEST: Jamaal Williams “‘Teacher,’ said John, ‘we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us.’ ‘Don’t stop him!’ Jesus replied.” These words from Mark chapter 9 remind us that, whenever we arrive in a particular place to proclaim the gospel, there very well may be others who were there long before we arrived.

More
GUEST: Jamaal Williams A sermon is far more than merely a speech that tells the truth about a biblical text. A sermon also applies this truth to people’s lives in a particular place. If that particular context is urban, the application changes even though the truth remains the same. Joining us today on the Urban Ministry Podcast is Jamaal Williams, lead pastor of Sojourn Community Church Midtown—a congregation that God has placed in an inner-city neighborhood in Louisville. If you’re...

More
GUEST: Kevin Jones In 2010, for the first time in human history, more than half of the people on this planet lived in urban contexts. That’s why urban ministry matters, because people matter. But what are we really talking about when we use the word “urban”? And what does that mean for urban ministry? In this episode, we’ll be talking to Dr. Kevin Jones, professor of education and chair of the school of education at Kentucky State University. If you care about ministry in the city, you...
