It starts from a shared burden regarding three laments:
A decreasing percentage of the population following Jesus
The Body of Christ impoverished by churches not being more closely connected
Christians lacking a united voice and action for addressing the deep needs of our city
Christian leaders started gathering and praying for the good of our city. We started to realize that greater collaboration was needed between followers of Jesus in Greater Philadelphia. From this shared desire to love and work towards ameliorating the deeps needs of our city, we formed a group of leaders from the marketplace, from churches, and from non-profits to impact the City of Brotherly Love. This became the launching point for PGM.
