About Christ Cares
OUR PURPOSE: TO SHARE GOD'S LOVE IN WORD AND DEED
HOW DO WE DO THIS?
WE FOCUS OUR ENDEAVORS IN THREE MINISTRY AREAS
1. URBAN MINISTRY.
OUR DIRECTOR, SCOTT REESE HAS BEEN SHARING GOD'S LOVE IN WORD AND DEED IN URBAN AREAS FOR OVER 30 YEARS. CHRIST CARES HAS A VARIETY OF URBAN MINISTRY ENDEAVORS - MORE INFORMATION - HERE ONE PERSON CAN ONLY DO SO MUCH SO WE HAVE BEEN TRAINING AND DEVELOPING LEADERS TO CONTINUE THE MINISTRY TO THE NEXT GENERATION. WE ARE ALSO IN NEED OF VOLUNTEERS
2. RECONCILIATION AND RESOURCING MINISTRY.
IT IS OUR DESIRE TO LINK & EMPOWER BELIEVERS FOR MINISTRY.
OUR DIRECTOR (& ONLY FULL TIME EMPLOYEE) HAS A UNIQUE HISTORY AND CALLING.
He has over 30 years of cross cultural ministry. He also has served as the Founding Pastor of a primarily African American congregation for about 18 years and also has been preaching at a Chinese Church on a regular basis for over 20 years. It is our desire to use this vast experience to help churches address racial and cultural issues.
We believe that every member of the Body of Christ is of the utmost importance and that "the hand cannot say to the foot, I have no need of thee." We believe that Christians can be enriched by connecting with and learning from Christians with different backgrounds and gifts.
We believe that Christians should share with those in need. We believe in developing two way relationships between city and suburban churches. Urban churches often need practical resources to help them minister effectively in areas of such economic needs. We also believe that the urban church also has much to offer.
We believe that the Internet has opened up unprecedented opportunities to share the gospel to this lost world of nearly 8 Billion. The internet has changed society - how people communicate, how they get information, make & communicate with friends, and even how they are entertained. Please take a moment to view the slide presentation on our Internet Ministry page to capture why we are so excited about inspiring YOU to share your faith online.

Christ Cares places an emphasis on Christian volunteer opportunities, resourcing & empowering Bible Believing Ministries. CHRIST CARES proclaims the GOOD NEWS of Romans 5 & John 3:16 that even though we are sinners, unable to save ourselves, God in his infinte mercy provided a way of salvation through the death, burial, & ressurection of Jesus Christ.
