About Us

Our Urban Voices aims to share a wide variety of diverse voices that can add to discussions on Christian ministry, missions, theology, and culture. We focus predominantly on these topics from the viewpoints of urban and Muslim ministries.

Our Urban Voices is an explicitly Christian podcast. It is an outreach ministry of Heart for Muslims, an interdenominational ministry that subscribes to the Lausanne Covenant.

Guests are not required to subscribe to the theological beliefs that Our Urban Voices espouses, but must be able to contribute to a discussion on topics that impact urban ministry, culture, or missions.

A guest’s presence on a podcast interview in no way equates to an endorsement of that guest or his/her religion, theology, opinions, or that guest’s own endorsements.

Additionally, a guest’s presence on a podcast interview in no way equates to an endorsement from Our Urban Voices, Heart for Muslims, Dr. Alfonse Javed, any host, any person associated with producing Our Urban Voices, or any other guest who has been interviewed on the podcast.

Heart for Muslims is considered the benefactor of the Our Urban Voices podcast. Donations and funding for the podcast are sourced through Heart for Muslims, which operates under Global Gates, a 501c3, and thus are tax-deductible.
