Mission

ur mission statement is "Connecting the Disconnected." With so much of our culture being self focused and disconnected, we are working hard to reverse this attitude in our students. Spiritual, career, family & parenting formation, as well as life skills development, broadening an individual's sense of community and worldview are addressed as we minister to the whole person. As they learn new perspectives and skills, we expect them to reinvest responsibly into their own community.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Transportation Ministry
Inspiration is the beginning of development, and removing a student from a familiar environment can be a catalyst for inspiration. The Transportation Ministry brings students to church, offsite training functions, and service opportunities.

Breakfast Ministry
Breakfast Ministry addresses students' physical needs. It is difficult to feed the mind if the body is hungry. This ministry provides a practical way for people to serve the urban community. We are teaching nutritional values by providing only healthy choices for breakfast and thus encouraging good nutritional and social eating habits.

Kids United
Kids United provides urban and suburban cultures opportunities to interact and learn from each other's strengths. We focus on teaching a biblical culture of values, character, and acceptance of others. This program is intensely focused on integrating a multicultural community. As a part of a multicultural community, this program allows individuals to utilize, enhance, and refine their unique giftedness.

Kids Connection
Kids Connection is a small group mentorship program helping elementary age children to see and experience successful people. A consistent mentor in the life of a student is the key to erasing generational poverty. In a culture void of respect, responsibility, consistency, values, and character, our mentors model these qualities and strive to see them exhibited in the lives of their students.

Teen Connection
Teen Connection is where students explore their own faith and values, establishing habits that continue into adulthood. Since the teen years are a critical time of life, we endeavor to establish positive mentor and peer relationships. This is accomplished in many ways, including weekly meetings, activities, and service opportunities. There are opportunities for growth through in-depth discipleship studies and for service through missions.

Family Connection
Family Connection establishes relationships between urban and suburban families.
School Connection
School Connection addresses the physical needs of students by providing school supplies and learning materials to enhance and empower the teachers to educate effectively. We also provide mentorship through guest speakers on topics such as health goals, jobs, truth, integrity, and success. A major component of student success is parental involvement; therefore, we create and assist in school events targeted at involving parents with their children in school.

Relief Ministry
Relief Ministries focuses on teaching people to manage their assets. We also assist with Christmas help, school uniforms, and financial counseling.

Training
Urban Connection offers training and curriculum to other churches and organizations currently involved or desiring to be involved in urban ministry. We are not perfect, but we are willing to share what we know. To learn more about arranging training for you or your team, check out jesusconnections.com.

Missions
Within the church we run several ministry programs during the summer. We are involved with Bible clubs, service projects, swim times, collaborative ministry projects, and bicycling. As our students develop and mature, we provide them with opportunities to invest in their own communities in practical ways, such as summer mentorship groups, neighborhood recreational opportunities, and the enhancement of civic pride. Successful students have the opportunity to travel to other cities in partnership with other programs to help reproduce the philosophy of Urban Connection Ministries.
Creation Connections
Creation Connections provides the experience of working in a garden, which enables children and families to learn about work, care, self sufficiency, and team work through mentorship.
