Urban Impact


Welcome to Urban Impact

Since 2005, the Urban Impact initiative has set out on a course to not only make a difference in the lives of urban children and youth in Fayette County, but to empower churches and equip leaders.  What does it look like for the Body of Christ to be active and powerful in the urban neighborhoods of Lexington, Kentucky?

When existing congregations and gifted leaders come together for a common vision, they become more than a ministry…they become a MOVEMENT!

Our Strategy

Working as an alliance, Urban Impact connects ministries across the city to execute a city wide youth ministry focusing on outreach events, youth development activities, and discipleship programs.
