In collaboration with local organizations, students’ vocational interests are matched with community needs and opportunities in an effort to provide a unique level of real world training in urban settings.
Students are challenged to connect classroom concepts with concrete applications in an urban ministry environment.
Through common retreat, consistent personal reflection, mentoring, and regular times of prayer, worship, and fellowship, students are encouraged to develop life-long transformative practices.
By engaging in a mentor-based missional cohort from within a strategic neighborhood, students are provided with the resources necessary to cultivate intentional relationships in a collaborative environment.
