Video: The Vision Behind Buzzard and Um’s ‘Why Cities Matter’

About Why Cities Matter: To God, the Culture, and the Church

Right now, more people live in urban centers than ever before. This means that we have an unprecedented opportunity to influence the majority of the world through the church in the city.

Helping us to make the most of this moment, urban pastors Justin Buzzard and Stephen Um lay out a compelling vision for cultural engagement and church planting in our world’s cities.

If you’re looking for motivation to maintain a commitment to the city or for guidance as you consider going all in, Why Cities Matter provides a comprehensive analysis of urban life that informs, instructs, inspires, and answers questions including:

  • 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

Instead of retreating from or taking from our cities, here is a call to make the cities our home, to take good care of them, and to participate in God’s kingdom-building work in the urban centers of our world.
