Urban Impact Ministries, established in 1989 by Glen Schrieber, is dedicated to transforming the lives of youth in Central City, New Orleans. Initially engaging through sports, the ministry expanded its services to address education gaps and provide spiritual guidance. In the 1990s, they purchased a building to house after-school programs, Bible studies, and their Leadership Academy.
Despite setbacks from Hurricane Katrina, Urban Impact continued to serve the community, partnering with EFCA TouchGlobal to restore the neighborhood. In 2011, the ministry expanded further by acquiring a damaged church and school, now renovated to house their services and a youth community center.
