Thanks to those of you who attended the Van Zanten Urban Ministry Lecture. For those of you who missed it, or if you want to watch it again, the entire conversation can be watched below.
The Van Zanten Urban Ministry Scholarship was established to honor the legacy of Rev. Tony and Donna Van Zanten and their commitment to raising up leaders for the urban church. The inaugural Van Zanten Urban Ministry Lecture is part of that effort. Rev. John Algera (recently retired from Patterson, NJ) and Rev. David Beelen (Madison Square in Grand Rapids) will offer reflections on what they’ve learned in their rich and storied careers in urban ministry and what they see as the opportunities and challenges of the future. Rev. Emmett Harrison (Oakdale Park Christian Reformed in Grand Rapids) will moderate the discussion.
