City Ministry

For my Urban Missions class, we are required to do a case study on an urban Church here in Louisville. My group was assigned to Servants Heart Church in an area called Portland here in Louisville. Earlier today, my group and I had a meeting with the pastor and key lay member where we were able to learn about the ministry they were doing there in Portland. These were cool people who are doing whatever they can to reach the area for Christ and are not afraid to think outside the box, or even take some heat from others, to make it happen. And what is sad is that most of the heat they are receiving is coming from people inside the church over petty, non-essential issues such as clothing style, or what time the service is held. When will we learn? At any rate, they're making it happen, and all for the glory of God!
