Who We Are.

Ardor Media is a division of Bethany Urban Development, a ministry dedicated to promoting transformative revival in urban communities. Beginning with a simple, life changing challenge, “I want you to reconnect with the lost, especially the poor and needy” (see Isaiah 58:6,7), the Lord directed B.U.D. to the urban core of South Minneapolis.
