Urban Ministry Studies

This major prepares you for effective ministry in an urbanized world. The majority of the world now lives in the city, and there is an increasing need for workers to be trained to effectively lead ministries and social agencies in urban areas..

  1. The Urban Ministries major is rooted in the fact that there is life-transformation through Jesus Christ—He changes lives and circumstances.
  2. The ministry they will be involved with uses a holistic approach to the Gospel, but also includes the value of connecting with local churches.
  3. Students will be mentored by experienced urban leaders who are living in the inner-city and connecting with the community.
