Urban Immersion: The Program

The Program

Urban Immersion is an intensive urban mission trip which puts participants face-to-face with the city of Oakland. It combines the gospel of Christ, service, prayer, and personal/team spiritual growth. Our goal is that during this trip you will draw closer to Jesus Christ, and be provided with opportunities to be a part of His work here in the city.

What you will do

  1. You will live in the city -- experiencing firsthand the sights, sounds, smells, and textures of urban life, in the heart of Oakland.
  2. You learn about the city -- unique issues and problems that city dwellers face and what God is doing to foster and further His Kingdom in the city, through the indigenous organizations that operate on the front lines of urban ministry.
  3. You become part of the solutions for the city -- by offering your time, energy and sweat as you support various church/para-church organizations we partner with.
