CLASSROOM.

Studies in Urban Ministry is a nine month, real-world experience for college students based at Urban Hope Training Center in the heart of Philadelphia.

WHAT IS SUM?

CE National and Christian colleges and universities are partnering together to present a four-month intercultural field experience internship, based at Urban Hope Training Center in the heart of Philadelphia. Real world, every day ministry becomes a student’s classroom as they journey amidst various cities throughout the northeast region throughout the program.

Working in cooperation with the Urban Hope Training Center in Kensington Philadelphia, participants of the Studies in Urban Ministries program have the unique opportunity of living, learning, and growing inside of a cross cultural environment. But it does not end there. Additional program features include:

  • Foundational roots in the belief that transformation begins with Jesus Christ. He alone changes lives and circumstances.
  • Learning happens in a variety of settings, including several host organizations throughout the northeast. Numerous day trips are scheduled to world class cities such as New York City, Washington DC, Baltimore and more.
  • Participants have the option for International Urban studies. This option allows a participant to broaden their perspective to see third world urban students, and observe various cultures’ ways of meeting social, material, and spiritual needs
  • Participants are mentored by experienced urban leaders, living in the inner city. This directional guidance empowers participants to gain skills in contact making, outreach, discipleship and teaching in a cross cultural setting.
