The School of Urban Ministry exists for the purpose of serving the body of Christ by providing a biblical and experiential education in an urban context.
As urban centers continue to be the fastest growing segment of the world’s population base, the need for a Christ centered and strategic approach to ministry becomes increasingly important. To do this, we must set aside secondary differences and take up the mantle of co-laboring with other like-minded ministries. It is this multifaceted picture that the student will be viewing as we “do the work of the ministry” with partner organizations and churches participating in this educational process.
