Temple Houses is a ministry of the Urban Mission Center that engages young adults in neighborhood transformation through intentional community. Members live, serve, and worship together - committed to making a difference in the name of Jesus in Benton Park West.
HANDS. Residents serve our neighbors in Benton Park West alongside local churches and social organizations. From neighborhood beautification to food pantries and community gardens to youth development, Temple Houses members can expect a variety of opportunities to transform our little piece of Saint Louis.
HEAD. Urban life comes with certain challenges - some simple, some very complex. Our cities need missional leaders who are ready to face these challenges with creativity and understanding. Residents have opportunities to explore topics of urban mission through multiple mediums, including workshops, book studies, mentoring, and classes with the Urban Mission Center.
HEART. It is so simple: love God and love your neighbors. After a year of city ministry, our hope is that you've deepened your love for God and for your neighbors. With your hands serving and your mind engaged, a changed heart is inevitable!
If you have a heart for the city and you're interested in intentional Christian community, consider applying for Temple Houses! We're looking for young adult students or professionals who will commit to transforming our neighborhood.
