The north side of Minneapolis is burdened with most of the city’s crime. Gangs of young men selling drugs on the corner are an everyday, normal occurrence here. There is a steady supply of women selling their bodies along the Penn Ave. North/Lowry Ave. corridors. Children unsupervised and alone are commonplace. Memorials dot the streets and boarded-up houses are widespread. They line the streets while the homeless lie under the freeway.
This is a land of the lost.
As Christians what should we do? Throw up our hands in despair and board the next stagecoach out of Dodge? No. That is not a God honoring, neighbor loving response. Rather we must heed the call God gave to Jonah concerning Nineveh, “Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me.”
The Lord Jesus is the only true solution to the deep-rooted problems in our city. Their cause is sin. “For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander” (Matthew 15:19). But, Jesus came to save the sinners! He calls us to be his witness in “Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8) – even Minneapolis!

This ministry exists to biblically equip men and women so that they might know, love, enjoy and glorify God and, by His grace, bring others to do the same locally through the church and globally through missions.
