Overview

It's a world in motion. Across the globe people are moving in unprecedented proportions from rural communities to urban centers. This explosion of growth and all the complexities it brings is not to be seen as a problem for churches, but as a gift—an opportunity to work with God within the city to see His purposes worked out.

Street Signs is a guide for church missions leaders and community ministry leaders seeking to bring spiritual and practical transformation to the city. Ray Bakke and Jon Sharpe offer transferable models that come from consultations held in over 200 world cities with church, business, government, and other leaders that provide approaches for God's people who want to love their own cities from the inside out. They also provide a practical and inspirational guide to enable leaders to become volunteer consultants, bringing together church and city leaders to mobilize resources for the transformation of the city.
