transforming a city

1000192353In 1985, pastors in a city in India came together to form a group called the Bombay Urban Fellowship. They met every month with the mission to, “Seek the Shalom of the city and to pray for it.” Over the past 28 years, this fellowship has grown into the Mumbai Transformation Network, where over 120 leaders connect to encourage Christian work in business, children’s and youth work, medicine, Bollywood, and compassion ministries, with more than 20 churches reaching out to the poor and marginalised.

I am so excited that call2all’s Global Compassion Network, which I am privileged to be a part of, is partnering with the Mumbai Transformation Network in hosting theCall2Compassion and Justice in Mumbai, from 4-8 November 2013.

The conference will focus on anti-human trafficking, working with children and risk, urban housing, and the role of the church in development, with additional workshops on coaching and mentoring, working with radical individuals, creating partnerships for purpose, and networking, and the chance to spend a day visiting one of Mumbai’s urban ministries.

We invite you to join us and our speakers – Viju Abraham, Jeyakumar Christian, John Hayes, Johan & Jeannette Lukasse, Deepak Mahtani, Arthur Thangiah, and David Westlake – this November to share in God’s vision for an authentic gospel ministry among the last, the least and the lost, and to learn from the amazing example of this taking place in Mumbai.
