    has done Urban Ministry here in Detroit for 30 years. When we think of Urban Ministry we must realize people are people and the ultimate need in a person life is Jesus. Through my years of Ministry I have used the example and model of Jesus and His Disciples. Jesus spent " time " " built " lead" guided " His Disciples. In Urban Ministry you really have to develop that trust  before you can ever share Jesus and offer Hope. And so many young peoples life's I have seen here in the city just believe there is no hope. Well through YFC/CityLife we are bring hope and light into this dark world. Hope is Helping, Overcoming, Problems, Effectively.
