“Looking at the problems that faced the people and children in Mexico City I felt quite desperate, but after Jean-Luc’s sermon, I felt hopeful, encouraged! His passion and commitment to Urban Mosaic is inspiring and stirred something in me to want to do more, be more, and to serve more.” - K.B.
"Going through the "God's Transforming Story" completely changed my perspective on the Bible, its message for today, the church's role and my own calling as a follower of Jesus. It re-energized my faith, re-ignited my passion, and compelled me to play my part in the Story of God with his world." - CR
"Learning about poverty and city transformation completely re-shaped my understanding of mission. Connecting my own spiritual poverty and lost-ness to the poverty and lost-ness of many urban dwellers made me realize that evangelism goes far beyond bringing individuals to Jesus, but includes changing systems and structures that mar the image of God in the "other"." - SS
