    Abstract

    The last decade has seen a significant response in the number of practitioners involved in urban missional around the world. Today the need is urgent for the broader church to take collective action to motivate and mobilise a strong contingent of Christian leaders who will commit to living incarnationally in poor urban communities. To respond to the challenges brought about by the massive rise or urbanisation in the world, recruiting people to follow Jesus into tough urban contexts cannot be ignored.
