Why Go Urban?
Why Urban Missions?

54% of the global population live in cities today! Millions travel to urban centres in search of a better life especially economically or through education. With an expected one billion people in Asia moving from rural to urban areas by the year 2030, the number of world city dwellers is expected to rise to 70% by 2050. This is indeed an urgent call to the church to serve and minister with the love of Christ in cities both locally and across the seas especially as the majority will be characteristically poor (living on less than $2 a day) and young (under 25 years of age).

It is time for churches in Singapore to arise to our calling as an Antioch of Asia. Despite modernisation and progress, there is an urgent call for us to be on the cutting edge to bring hope to the many, especially people in our neighbouring cities who are struggling with diverse social issues, poverty, lack of education, exploitation, loneliness, ageing, addictions, digitalization, livelihood and marketplace matters. As Jesus’ “love letters”, let us step out creatively in our unique ways. Together we can help to meet one or more of these needs and make a positive difference to impact and transform cities.

With a line-up of specially invited prominent international and local speakers, the 2018 GoForth National Missions Conference will look at an array of diverse strategies to empower individuals and churches to reach and transform cities with the love of Christ.
