What Others Are Saying About Urban Harvest
“It’s easy to focus on the needs and problems in the inner city and world without offering real solutions that make a difference. UHM has consistently offered the hope of Christ with Word centered and Holy Spirit directed solutions.”
“Once I got involved I began to realize that everyone I met was, in many ways, just like me; concerned about family, jobs, relationships, the same things we are all concerned with. They became real people to me and I began to realize how much they needed to hear and know about the love of God. UHM truly is the hands and feet of Jesus in communities where it is needed the most. This ministry is real and it is effective, which is why I still support it today.”
“We have also benefited as Pastor Tom and his family have shared with our church family proven strategies to reaching the lost and our communities. Their approach to ministry is a personal one which translates to any culture and community. The Grassano’s haven’t simply taken our support with gratitude. They have also invested in our church family on many occasions.”
“We can no longer stay within the four walls of our churches and expect to reach our community. We have to go to them, because we have the greatest message and the greatest thing of all – Jesus Christ!”
“While we were doing outreach in a park, a pastor stopped and asked me, ‘Are you crazy? Do you know where you’re at? Do you realize how much blood has run in this park?’ I said, ‘That may be so, but we’re getting ready to change that. It’s going to be the blood of Jesus to flow in this park now.’ That week, 11 young men received Christ!”
“To have a ministry come along side of us who understands the things we go through and the struggles and challenges that we face every day, and be there to hold our arms up in the middle of the battle is just awesome. It’s something we have not had in the past. It is priceless.”
“We’ve seen people opening their doors in areas where we weren’t able to get in their doors before. The concentration has been on Jesus and His delivering power! Hope for the City a blessing to Detroit and a blessing to our church. It’s a blessing from the Lord!”
Urban Harvest Ministries has been used of God to bring new life to our church and our city: To our church by challenging and training me and our members to take the Gospel to the streets through prayer and proclamation; and to our city by their leadership and ministry that crosses cultural, ethnic and denominational boundaries. They are doers as well as a dreamers of God’s vision for the city.
Urban Harvest Ministries has created miracles for the children and families of our community.
Urban Harvest Ministries has done whatever it takes to bring Christ’s life and love to the hurting of some of the neediest communities of our nation.
I know of no one who has greater compassion for and greater expertise in ministering to the disenfranchised that exist in the urban community.
