It was cool to come to ICI, not only to be part of the ministry but to stay overnight because we are plugged into ICI, and our whole week is ICI. It was cool to see your mission and vision, and I fell in love with it and seeing ICI’s history. It was fun thinking that when my mom went to Moody Bible Institute in the ’80s, her PCM (Moody volunteer placement) was ICI. It was crazy to think that ICI has a long history in this neighborhood, so it’s fun to see that God’s still working through this ministry. Seeing how you are investing in the neighborhood, and going to them, is unique. Seeing the youth group kids from Kent City Baptist go into a new context was neat. Some had never been in the city, never been in such an urban context, and never seen cultures other than their own. I got to see them branch out and gain more experience and perspective. We were serving the students here at ICI, but ICI was also investing in our students and helping them learn what ministry looks like and what being the hands and feet of Christ actually looks like.

ICI became a place where Brian could be a kid. Then it became so much more.

Along my journey, God put humble leaders in my life. Being around those people made me want to imitate them and I realized leadership isn’t about outward strength but about setting an example for others to follow.

Due to incredible and sudden economic hardship for the families of children we serve in Chicago and Cicero, Inner City Impact is providing weekly food assistance to 50 – 70 families in need. Our focus is on ICI families we know have economic hardship and families with which we have a long-standing, gospel-centered relationship.
