Number of Volunteers:
PCA Churches volunteers are many and Christian Service Mission partnership volunteers are in the hundreds. About 90 percent of members from UHCC regularly volunteer.
Much of Fairfield is poor and blighted, with high crime and theft, and lack of resources for maintenance upkeep of city. Very little job growth opportunities are available within the city: there are no new business opportunities, and companies are not moving in.
Maintaining faithful discipleship to the urban poor is always the biggest challenge in church planting. Its very time consuming and you must have a long-view of ministry in mind.
