About Us

Urban Family Ministries exists to strengthen families and change lives by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ within the urban core of Grand Rapids through relational, spiritual, and economic empowerment.  We desire to build personal relationships with our neighbors, walking alongside them as we experience the struggles and joys of life together.  This provides us many opportunities to be examples of Jesus Christ and to share His life-transforming hope, love, and power.

Through an organizational and funding network that includes churches, businesses, and individuals, Urban Family Ministries has been able to provide “hands-on” ministry, serving families in the urban core of Grand Rapids.  We reach not only children and youth, but families as a whole, with our weekly Super Saturday event, one-on-one relationship building, mentoring programs, and more. These are all tools Urban Family Ministries uses to show the love of Jesus in a real and practical way.

Urban Family Ministries is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
