Urban Missions The three purposes of the Urban Missions page are as follow: 1. To point to resources that will help church leaders in urban, inner-city, and areas that are experiencing demographic shifts. 2.
To highlight opportunities for others to join in the work in urban areas of Texas. 3. To be a place that will share prayer requests about urban church work in Texas. Please feel free to share those prayer requests and we will get them out appropriately.
