  • renewal neighborhood ministry

    Renewal Neighborhood Ministry is an organization founded and run by Outlook and our partner, Crossroads Bible Church, to manage our ministry efforts in the neighborhoods near Post Road and 42nd Street. This is one of the most impoverished areas in Indianapolis and has been designated by the city as one of six “targeted” neighborhoods because of high rates of poverty, crime, and other factors. Despite those circumstances, the Post and 42nd neighborhood is less than 15 minutes from Outlook and many Outlookers live closer to that neighborhood than they do to Outlook itself. 

    Renewal Neighborhood Ministry offers a broad and ever-increasing variety of programs aimed at transforming the neighborhood by strengthening families through the love of Christ. These programs include classroom tutoring, after school mentoring, summer programs, youth sports leagues, as well as walking alongside individual families in many different ways. Some of these service opportunities are ongoing, some are temporary.
