Urbanization! It’s happening all around us. In 2010, for the first time in human history, more than half of the people on this planet lived in urban contexts. In the past, many churches have taken a “rescue mission” approach to lower-income urban areas, providing charity for people in need. But there are other ways that believers in Jesus Christ can be present in urban areas! One of these ways is to teach in urban schools. In this episode of the Urban Ministry Podcast, we’ll be talking to Dr. Kevin Jones, chair of the school of education at Kentucky State University. If you’re interested in the development of urban communities, you won’t want to miss this episode of the Urban Ministry Podcast.
