You can live in community with other students in one of Chicago’s under-resourced cross-cultural neighborhoods. Partner with the local churches and ministries, as you prepare for future life and ministry in an increasingly urbanized world. You’ll be supported and mentored by faculty, staff, counselors, and local ministry leaders, all experienced in cross-cultural ministry. It’s a hands-on way to learn, as you’re immersed in the community you’re serving while still attending classes.
