WHO WE ARE

Founded in 2017, Poor Culture is a—come as your are—experimental faith community living a God First Lifestyle, located in The Bronx, NY.

 
 

Our Vision

Gods plan for your life goes beyond Sunday. God First is a lifestyle. God desires that you take your everyday,  ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing that God can transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. Don’t become so well-adjusted to this “me, me, me” culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God first. You’ll be transformed from the inside out. The best you, living your best life. So, go ahead, put God first.

Our Mission

Our mission is to ignite abundant living into the lives of our community, and to build God’s world where ALL are accepted, welcomed, and loved.

GREATNESS Through Service

Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve.

 

You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love. The community thrives when people use their time, talents, and or their resources. in the community. There is something that only you can do. So, do it for the culture.
