Tucson faces a number of problems that are causing people to suffer. For example, Tucson has the 6th highest poverty rate, compared to cities of similar size (US Census Bureau). We are ranked in the bottom 15% of America’s Most Business Friendly Cities (MarketWatch Survey 2015). And we are the 7th worst city in the U.S. across a number of educational indicators including graduation rates, test scores, and per-pupil spending (Parenting.com).

These types of systemic problems have led to conditions where people are not able to reach their potential, where city structures and institutions are limiting and harmful, where the entrepreneurial spirit is stifled, and where the family support system is broken.

How can our city be transformed?

With God…
Every problem in our city is fixable—nothing is impossible. (Matthew 17:20)
Christians are uniquely gifted to solve our city’s most difficult problems and must take responsibility for them. When we do, we glorify God.
(Ephesians 3:10)
If we ask, God will give us the wisdom to solve our city’s problems. (James 1:5)

4Tucson’s strategy is to address our city’s most difficult and systemic problems by uniting Christians to envision and implement biblical solutions for the benefit of the whole city.

Below is a visual representation of this strategy. Consider attending First Steps 4Tucson where we walk through how it works and how YOU can get involved!

People are suffering in our city, and we can help. Because of our relationship with Jesus, and because we have access to His wisdom, Christians are uniquely qualified to help solve citywide problems that are hurting people.

What is a City?

The city is God’s invention. The city is a center of population, commerce and culture of significant size and importance when compared to the surrounding geographical area. God’s purpose for the city is for people to collectively utilize the resources of creation to build civilization.

What is Transformation?

Transformation is a thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance from the previous state.

What is City Transformation?

City Transformation is bringing all of the city structures and institutions into alignment with biblical principles for the peace and prosperity of the citizens.

Why does our City Need Transformation?

Most of the significant problems that our city currently faces are the culmination of years of poor decisions. As our city grows, complex problems that expose the ill-fated decisions of the past will only get worse without a transformational process.

How Can Our City Be Transformed?

Christians are uniquely qualified to call on God for wisdom and apply his principles to implement City Transformation.

4Tucson’s strategy is to address our city’s most difficult and systemic problems by uniting Christians to envision and implement biblical solutions for the benefit of the whole city.
