About the Location:

Often referred to as the "Cradle of Liberty," Boston is the site of some of the most significant social, cultural and political moments in U.S. history. Living in the region can feel like acting out the pages of a history book, while simultaneously experiencing the perks of a modern metro area. Boston's tenacious spirit was born out of an act of revolution and since its inception, the pursuance of innovation and progress has been in its DNA. From the Old North Church to the Institute of Contemporary Art and everything in between, Boston is steeped in culture and rich in pride.

Demographically Boston is vibrant because it is full of young, single people, many of whom are highly educated. Spiritually Boston is 3% evangelical Christian (source: the ARDA), with 40% of people being Catholic or post-Catholic, and 40% of people claiming no religious affiliation at all. Consistently ranked as one of the "least bible-minded cities in America" by the Barna group, Boston presents unique difficulties in ministry which presents an inviting challenge to the candidate with a passion for reaching those far from God.
