The Micah Ministry began in 2001 at Independence Boulevard Christian Church (in downtown Kansas City) and continues today as an ecumenical outreach to the urban poor in the greater Kansas City metro area. Week after week, Micah is enriched by the servant leadership of numerous partnering churches and community organizations which voluntarily staff, supply and fund the Micah Ministry. This urban mission is unique in several ways: It is the largest local outreach mission of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the largest region for the Christian Church (the Kansas City region). Also, it is one of the few urban outreach missions that simultaneously offer multiple ministries in one evening, in one location, over a single hour-and-a-half. Peaceful guests who may or may not be sober to receive those ministries are welcome, and there is never a charge for receiving ministry at Micah.
Monday evenings from 5:30-7:00 pm, free, nourishing suppers are provided to our neighbors in the church’s capacious Fellowship Hall. This “cafe” ministry, is principally staffed by church members, metropolitan civic and religious volunteers and advanced urban ministry seminary students. And now Care Beyond the Boulevard provides health care services for our guests.
