Jesus loves the Poor
He lived his life among those on the fringes of society, teaching them and compassionately tending to their needs. While respectable people of his day often ignored or shunned the least, Jesus welcomed them as valued friends. He demonstrated a community of social justice He called the "Kingdom of God," inviting the poor to take honored places in that new fellowship.
Friends of the City seeks to mirror the life of Christ as we live and serve to make life better for the urban poor.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
In the 1980s and 90s, a movement of God swept through American Universities and college campuses. It was a prophetic call to love and serve the poor while seeking justice, demonstrating mercy, and proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ. Servant Partners was founded in 1993 in response to this movement of God's Spirit. We focused our early efforts on inner city communities in the US. In the late 1990s, God led us to expand our ministry into the inner cities of the developing world. We now live and serve in 16 different urban global cities in 11 different countries. We have been partnering with indigenous church leaders to empower the urban poor in Bangkok since 2003.
