The Urban Plunge is a unique initiative of Johnson University. Launched three years ago, the Urban Plunge has developed into an organically structured inner-city immersion experience set amongst strategic neighborhoods in Knoxville. The program is designed to provide upper-level undergraduate students with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to explore urban ministry, academic integration, spiritual formation, and intentional community—and to do so within the context of a mentor-based missional cohort. Cohort members will enjoy access to a rich resource network of mature urban leaders and their organizations and will be challenged to develop the integral habits of incarnational Christian witness in a variety of real-world applications.
