CE National launched the ministry of Urban Hope in the fall of 1998.
CE National is a church effectiveness ministry. So many believers are busy. So many churches have so much going on. As a Church Effectiveness ministry, CE National’s desire is to help churches and individuals be effective – both programmatically and personally – by focusing on four primary areas: reaching individuals who do not yet know Jesus (evangelism), teaching biblical truth to build up Christ followers (growth), coaching believers in the the “how to’s” of ministry (equipping), and developingservant-leaders for the cause of Christ.
The purpose of CE National is to be a catalyst for all believers to be trained and mobilized to be “on mission.” This is done by: impacting the rising generation, reaching neglected people, and equipping biblical leadership.
A person who lives on mission is one who knows Jesus, is becoming like Jesus, shares Jesus, and is helping others be like Jesus!
The CE National theme verse is II Corinthians 5:15
“And He died for all that they who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.”
