Mission of the Month February
Urban Faith Mission
We are an urban outreach right in the heart of the Lincoln Heights Courts on the west side of San Antonio. We are surrounded by 350 family units. This is a struggling area that creates real challenges for young people to achieve success in life. Our goal is to be a second family for them. To create programs that encourage education, life skills development and most importantly teaches them to follow Jesus.
We started this ministry just 2 years ago. But we have already outgrown our space (we have the activity of 60-70 kids and youth on a weekly basis). We currently do after school homework help, youth mentoring, kids and youth night, a moms support time, and a food/diaper/kids clothes bank. Plus we do monthly and seasonal outreaches to help encourage the larger community (the average attendance usually ranges from 300-500). We are definitely busy, but we know that God wants us to fight for the young hearts down here.
Please pray about giving to this local mission. We are in the process of developing a youth center so that we can have more downstairs space for our kids, and ultimately add on more after school days. We need financial assistance to be able to complete the work on our building. We estimate that the cost for this project is going to be about $4000. Any help that we can receive will help to lower that hit on us. Please pray about this. You can learn more about what we do on our Facebook or at www.urbanfaithmission.com.
Mission of the Month is an opportunity for generous giving to local, national or global outreach ministries -- over and above your regular church giving. You are invited to make a gift to Mission of the Month as God calls you. Jesus said “Feed My Sheep”
