Our Global Cities Emphasis offers an unprecedented opportunity to impact over 100 million people living in the 75 largest and most influential global cities, while also learning together across our organization to capture lessons, develop strategies and equip a new generation of city leaders to reach their cities with the gospel. Your gift will undergird IMB’s organization-wide, global-cities emphasis to train, resource, and connect city leaders to engage megacities comprehensively. Specifically, your gift will allow us to equip our missionaries along these learning continuums:
1. Cohorts: The City Leaders of the 75 Global Cities will be part of a global learning community called, Global Cohorts, consisting of eight to 10 leaders who come together virtually and in-person over a two-year period to reshape their strategies to engage comprehensively, address common trends impact urban communities, sharpen their skills and learn together to reach their cities.
2. Networks: Our Global Cities network includes all of our City Leaders, their teams and partners. This network host quarterly Urban Webinar featuring thought leaders from IMB and our partner organizations to help us explore trends impacting urban cities. The network also provides online resources to increase our collective Cities IQ, as we seek ways to accelerate our capacity to engage these global cities.
3. Conferences: Beyond learning via global cohorts, webinars and networks, we bring our city leaders and key partners together annually to address emerging issues and obstacles that hinder our ability to effectively engage Global Cities.
