Camden is a city in need. It has been in the top worst cities in America and even rated in the "Top 10" worst cities in the world. Camden was rated the most violent city in America for 2009. The average income is $18,000, with approximately 44% of the population living below poverty. The unemployment rate is close to 11%, and about 40% have not completed high school. Camden City led the USA in murder in 2004.
What is it about Camden that compels us?
Beyond the deep need the Lord Jesus Christ has compelled us through his Holy Spirit to reach Camden with the Gospel. We have a passion to see the city of Camden loaded with worshippers of Jesus Christ. There are some churches that are faithfully ministering to Camden, but there are simply not enough. So we desire to participate in the ongoing Gospel mission to see Camden missionally engaged and transformed into a city of hope.
