About Miami

South Florida is home to 27 of the 400 richest people in America. The region is often viewed as a 76-degree paradise, dripping in bling and boasting the best nightclubs, bay-front mansions and flashy cars. It is home to celebrities and pro athletes as well as business moguls and fashion models. But paradoxically, the population of many of its citizens fall below the federal poverty line. Rich or poor, famous or not so much, one thing is certain: The people of South Florida need Christ. In this dense population zone, 79% of the population is lost. Join us in Miami as we partner with church planters to offer something beyond what money can buy, which is real hope in the good news of Christ!

Why serve in Miami?

Poverty Rate

The Miami area is home to 27 of the 400 richest people in America. But paradoxically, the population of many of its citizens fall below the federal poverty line. Miami is the rated the second worst city in the nation for income inequality.

Perception

Miami is often viewed as a 76-degree paradise, dripping in bling and boasting the best nightclubs, bay-front mansions and flashy cars. It is home to celebrities and pro athletes as well as business moguls and fashion models.

Diversity

The presence of both rich and poor in Miami is largely immigrant-driven. Amongst the rich it attracts are white-collar professionals from developed countries like Russia, Brazil, and Argentina. Many of Miami’s poor, meanwhile, resemble the migrants found throughout the developing world; they are often uneducated, were previously agrarian or slum-dwelling, are without English, and, in this case, come from the Caribbean and Central America.
