Chicago (IL) Urban Vision Trip
October 12-16, 2018
The Chicago Urban Vision Trip is designed to help students learn about and from inner city cultures and about ministry in these cultures. The trip will include learning from our brothers and sisters in Hispanic and African-American churches and neighborhoods, the homeless, and one another as well as provide opportunities to engage in the neighborhood through work projects and more. This is not primarily an evangelistic mission, but rather a learning mission-although we certainly hope that opportunities for spoken and lived evangelism will occur.
