Episode #51 - Urban Mission & Planting - with Steve Pike (In Collaboration with Sidewalk Skyline Podcast)
Steve Pike has been at the forefront of church planting for thirty years. He served as founding director of Church Multiplication Network (CMN) for the Assemblies of God (USA) denomination. Seeing a need for more church plants in cities, he founded Urban Islands Project, which exists to “increase the presence of the Church in the Urban O.” We’ll ask Steve to tell us about the Urban O. He’s also released a book entitled ‘Next Wave: Discovering the 21st Century Church’.
Grateful to have a few friends hosting together in this episode: Brian Egert is the director of PAOC's Mission Canada, which focuses on reaching the gaps in Canada with the Gospel; Kevin Rogers leads the Urban Ministry Guiding Group for Mission Canada, pastors a church in Windsor, which is focused on those in the community with the greatest needs, and is the primary host of the Sidewalk Skyline Podcast.

Thinking differently can be difficult. Our ruts testify to our staggering preferences for the familiar. Even if they slow us down to a creeping clamber, they’re ‘our ruts,’ and we prefer what we know.
