Urban Missions Experience

Urban Mission

BHITC offers Urban Mission Experiences for churches near and far. These service learning opportunities give youth and adults the opportunity to experience the Kingdom outside of their normal context, uniquely helping them grow in their love for God, the city, and others.

These trips will be used by Jesus to give your members important insights into urban mission, cultural differences, understanding poverty and the unique “vibe” a major city offers. BHITC staff will facilitate Learn, Serve and Reflect sessions through teaching times, urban prayer walks, work at Building Hope sites and partner sites, and more.

Learn sessions are discussions with Building Hope staff about urban ministry; possible topics may include: working with those in poverty, cross cultural orientation, a prayer walk, social enterprise and urban church planting and challenges. *subject to staff availability*

Our Serve sessions are the time your team will spend working at one of our sites or a close partner site. Possible sites include The Hope Center for Refugees and Immigrants, Common Threads Thrift, Nehemiah Collaborative, an urban church plant and the Family Ministry Center. *subject to availability of work projects*

The Reflect time includes devotionals and time for your group to reflect on what they’re learning during the time with us.
