Mission & Values

ICCM Life Center is an urban ministry center committed to transforming impoverished people through the power of Jesus Christ.

The Life Center began in 1993 in the living room of Chris and Monica's South Minneapolis home. Today, after more than 25 years of inner-city ministry, they understand what it takes to see a life transformed.

From homelessness, addiction, and abuse to having a renewed mind and life through the power of Jesus Christ.

Our Story

In 1993, The Life Center (formerly known as the Inner City Church of Minneapolis) began from Pastors Chris and Monica’s home in the poorest and most crime-ridden neighborhood in the Twin Cities.  The ministry grew quickly as addicts, prostitutes, the homeless and families struggling in poverty came for help and hope for a better life.

Today, the Life Center helps over 700 people each week through their 4-T Life-Change Process giving people the “Abilities” to succeed in life and escape poverty and addiction.
