Cities Matter

We live in a unique moment in history.

More people live in urban centers today than ever before, which means there’s an unprecedented opportunity to influence the world through the church in the city.

In Why Cities Matter: To God, the Culture, and the Church (excerpt), urban pastors Justin Buzzard and Stephen Um lay out a vision for cultural engagement and church planting in our world’s cities.

An Award Winning Resource

Last year, Why Cities Matter received an “Award of Merit” in the category of “Christianity and Culture” from Christianity Today.

More recently, Outreach Magazine highlighted the book as one their recommended resources on “Culture and the Church.”


“This book will be an essential guide to discerning leaders who know that cities matter and want to engage those cities well.”

Ed Stetzer, President, LifeWay Research


If you’re looking to maintain your vision for your city or for guidance as you go all in, this book provides a comprehensive analysis of urban life that informs, instructs, inspires, and answers:

  • Why cities are so important
  • What the Bible says about cities
  • How to overcome common issues and develop a plan for living missionally in the city
