The vision of Jubilee is unique. The neighborhoods of Philips and Powderhorn are also unique. We are seeking to blend together in partnership the resource of many people and some existing ministries to accomplish the end of seeing a vibrant church reaching out with the hope of Christ and bringing about change in this challenging environment.
The partnerships with which we are working show a flavor for the unique direction we are headed. Jericho Road is a mercy ministry with whom we work closely seeking to meet physical needs in the community. Jubilee Youth Center is a ministry seeking to reach out to the urban youth in our community. Partnering with Bethlehem Urban Initiatives connects us with the vision and resources of a larger and older downtown church. Our partnership with Hope Academy gives mentorship opportunities with urban youth and helps fulfill their vision for providing a Christ-centered education.
Our combined efforts in this city are taxing. This is an area that is economically challenged and negatively labeled by society at large. This is a people who are ethnically divided. By God’s grace we are pursuing the impossible, and as he works through many, the many will glorify him as God of this city.
