Urban Ministry Survey for the Presbytery of San Jose's Commission
This survey is sent on behalf of the Presbytery's Commission for urban ministry in downtown San Jose. The Commission's task is to establish a base for ongoing urban ministry with the reinvestment of proceeds from the sale of the First Presbyterian Church of San Jose's property. In relation to their task, the Commission defines "urban ministry" as those programs of compassion that share the love of Christ by serving people coping with homelessness and poverty in downtown San Jose.
Your input is very valuable to our process. Thank you very much!
The Rev. Jenni Bales and Elder Carolyn Rosen
