We live in an urban age. For the first time in human history, most of the world’s people live in cities. It is thus vital, say Mark Gornik and Maria Liu Wong, for Christians to think constructively about how to live out their faith in an urban setting.

In Stay in the City Gornik and Liu Wong show and tell what is happening in the urban church. Writing from their experience living and working in New York City, they invite readers everywhere to join together in creating a more flourishing urban world for all.

“If you need encouragement about the vibrant future of the church or if you are looking for a place to start in reflecting on Christian faithfulness in the city, this little book is a great resource. In an accessible and engaging way, the authors communicate the energy, passion, and creativity that is alive in urban congregations. Highly recommended!”

“I love the holistic vision of Stay in the City. Mark Gornik and Maria Liu Wong challenge us to see the amazing ways God’s at work in the city through every language, culture, and people. This is a great practical resource for individuals and groups to follow Jesus through our day jobs, our friendships, our art, our children, and even our churches.”

“This powerful book should be required reading for every ministry training program in North America. Highly recommended!”
— Jude Tiersma Watson
Fuller Theological Seminary
“Cities are now hip and cool, drawing a new and sometimes controversial wave of urbanites. Stay in the City tells the stories of those who are not new converts to urban life but have stayed and have learned that staying is part of their own thriving as they contribute to the flourishing of the city. I will recommend this volume widely.”
Religious Studies Review
“This compact work will be a valuable and accessible urban ministry training tool at
both the congregational and seminary-training level, especially among pentecostal, evangelical, and many Mainline Protestant audiences.”
