About Urban Vision
Urban Vision is made up of a staff who has relocated to North Hill in order to reach the community for Christ one child and family at a time…
There are so many needs in every community. We believe that the largest need is to be saved from our own depravity. Which only happens through Christ’s death and resurrection.
Our families are battling generational poverty, broken homes, and multicultural class rooms. Our goal is to give the community the tools and resources needed to succeed.
Providing training for individuals in our community to develop future leaders for our community.
"Building a Vibrant Community"
Will you be that one who could prayerfully come or give? Will you help see children eternally impacted? Will you be the one to serve, and personally touch a life? Will you be the one to give, so that others can benefit so much in God’s Kingdom? We cannot do this alone! Our Christmas prayer is that we could have no Christmas list— that is, no more children waiting on the list asking, “When is it my turn?” Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:12 Please pray that longings are fulfilled, that children can be provided for, and that they can finally come! Thank you for your prayerful consideration of this request. We appreciate so much all of you who have given so much to make a difference in the lives of many families in the North Hill Community! ~Jodi Matthews
