Nature and purpose of agency
Urban Impact is an outreach ministry to unreached people groups
here in New York. Most of the people we minister to come from
closed countries where missionaries and evangelism are not
allowed. Presently, we are oversee two evangelistic ministry
centers: one geared toward Muslims from West Africans, and the
other center which evangelizes and serves Muslims, Hindus,
and Sikhs of South Asia.
Urban Impact Ministry, focuses on meeting the spiritual—as well as
physical & social needs of the Muslims of our target
neighborhoods. At our two ministry centers, we have many
classes and services for the immigrants. We eventually move
Christian missionaries into apartments which are near these Muslim
outreach centers. The UI missionaries lead ESL & citizenship
classes, computer classes, youth and teen programs. We also host
other special events in the summer and around holidays which serve
as platforms for evangelistic presentations.
