The Vision of Charles E. Blake Ministry Initiatives, formerly Urban Initiatives, is to build strong individuals, families and communities for a successful future.
The Mission of Charles E. Blake Ministry Initiatives, formerly Urban Initiatives, is to empower the local church to implement programs that address Education, Economic Development, Crime, Family and Financial Literacy. Because of the current trends of urbanization and equal opportunity rights, the Small/Rural Church and Diversity-equity are also additional programatic opportunities. These programs will result in measurable improvement in the quality of life for individuals, families and communities served by the Church Of God In Christ. We will do this by identifying and replicating best practices from our churches as well as external resources, and making them easily available to all churches utilizing technology and other resources.
