Urban Vision's Nehemiah Campaign

CCC Local Outreach ministry partner Urban Vision is like Nehemiah, the Old Testament man of God who was moved to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem after the Jewish people were taken into captivity. However, Urban Vision has mostly focused on rebuilding the spiritual lives and academic hopes of at risk youth and their families in North Akron, one life at time, for God’s glory. At the same time, Urban Vision’s ministries of mercy and justice are based in a physical building at 749 Blaine Avenue in Akron.

To ensure its stewardship of both the building and its outreach to neighbors in need, Urban Vision has launched its Nehemiah Campaign to raise $541,866 by December 31, 2011. The funds will be used to (1) ensure much needed repairs are made to the building, and (2) support additional staff needed to meet the needs of the local community. The building’s outside masonry needs to be repaired, so water does not enter and eventually cause the walls to collapse. The building also needs new exterior doors and repairs or replacement of leaky windows. All of this will enable this vital ministry to continue serving the growing needs of North Akron families via great programs such as Set on Success, which helps young people improve their academic results and gain a vision for a brighter future. All programs ensure the youth understand that Urban Vision is extending Christ’s love to them, as Urban Vision provides an alternative to joining gangs and other high risk activities.

Would you or your group prayerfully consider how you might support the Nehemiah Campaign? Urban Vision is also in need of hands-on volunteers to be the hands and feet of Christ in North Akron. For more information, please…
