I stumbled on Hope for New York recently.
I'm already a big fan of what Tim Keller and the people at Redeemer Presbyterian have been doing to mobilize the whole body of Christ to plant "gospel-centred" churches throughout New York.
Looks like they're also behind this initiative to mobilize people and resources to serve the poor and marginalized.
Their vision is a city in which individuals and communities experience spiritual, personal, social and economic well-being through the demonstration of Christ's love.
You can volunteer to make pancakes, give money, teach English, mentor students, build accommodation. HFNY links people and resources with faith based initiatives to serve the poor.
Why not the same dual strategy in every city, town and region on the planet?
