Urban Covenant is founded on the belief that world missions MUST begin at home. We are a non-partisan and inter-denominational Christian organization dedicated to supporting and mobilizing Christians to engage in urban evangelism through word and deed, while providing resources for ministries and charities who serve those who face the challenges of poverty and injustice in our cities.
HOW WE WORK
The best way to describe Urban Covenant's charity model is to think of us as a clearly Christian version of the United Way. Urban Covenant is not involved with direct service or program delivery, rather, we partner with existing ministries and charities who are already making an impact in the communities they serve.
Urban Covenant will become a way for generous Christians to make a broad impact in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). By supporting us, funds will be given to our Partner Agencies who are making an impact in various communities all over the GTA while addressing a broad range of issues. Supporters will know that each dollar given will be making a Kingdom impact by addressing issues like: poverty, homelessness, human trafficking, refugees, high-risk youth, education, unemployment, environment, food safety, mental illness, geriatrics and affordable housing just to name a few. Urban Covenant will also focus resources to ministries in the GTA whose primary focus is on Evangelism because "Never in history has 'Go ye into all the world' only required a bus pass.
Urban Covenant exists because we know that no one person, one church or one charity can reach our cities alone.
Reaching the world by serving our cities.
To engage Christians to participate in world urban evangelism by serving our diverse cities with their prayers, time and resources.
To empower urban ministries and charities to serve those who face the challenges of poverty and injustice.
