T. Aaron Smith’s new book, Thriving in the City: A Guide for Sustainable Incarnational Ministry Among the Urban Poor, is a journey into the heart of urban poor ministry.
Servant Partners staff and leadership have been tossing around the idea of making and distributing books for years. Decades of ministry with the urban poor have deepened our insight and passion for involving more people in God’s work.

Servant Partners Press, a division of Servant Partners, an interdenominational evangelical organization that addresses urban poverty issues worldwide, has published its inaugural book and launched a new marketing campaign to expand the press’ audience.
